Last night, we had many questions about this and there was a lot of frustration among the fans when it was announced that the Montreal Canadiens sent Arber Xhekaj to the Laval Rocket in the AHL.

However, it seemed clear that it was just a matter of a "salary cap move" before the start of the season, but well, it has just been confirmed.
Xhekaj will not play any games with the Laval Rocket, as it's just what's called a paper transaction.
It was simply done to maximize the Canadiens' salary cap strategy.
It has just been confirmed. He will be called up before tomorrow's game.
"On paper, the Canadiens have sent Arber Xhekaj to the Rocket while also keeping Joel Armia on the roster to maximize their salary cap and the money they can reuse from the long-term injured list. This doesn't change the fact that Xhekaj will be lined up with the Canadiens."

There you have it. Xhekaj will indeed be in the lineup tomorrow night as the Canadiens take on the Toronto Maple Leafs. It's going to be intense!
