Arber Xhekaj's name continues to grow in popularity with Montreal Canadiens fans and opponents alike.

Well, we're not really talking about the same kind of popularity, but he's still the talk of the town, and he knows it.
As Xhekaj mentioned this morning, he is perfectly comfortable with the idea of being a player targeted by his opponents, and he even loves it.
Speaking of which, Xhekaj will play his first pre-game this Wednesday night at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto against the Maple Leafs.
After demolishing Senators youngster Zachary Massicotte during the Rookie Tournament, expect him to be asked to dance tonight, and some names have already been identified.
"Mark my words, Clifford or Douglas is going to get something going with Xhekaj and it's not going to be pretty."

This promises! Xhekaj definitely has the size to compete with Kyle Clifford and Curtis Douglas, and it would make for a great show.
Xhekaj is above that, and he has a lot more to offer the Montreal Canadiens than just throwing down the gloves. Unlike Clifford and Douglas, who will literally have to fight for the attention of Leafs management. That's all they can do.
Watch for them tonight in Toronto!
But we insist, Xhekaj is much more than just an agitator. He is proving to everyone that he can really become a solid all-around NHL defenseman.
