Major: bad news involving Arber Xhekaj and he is gone

Published April 8, 2024 at 8:42 PM

Arber Xhekaj has been sidelined from the team, and his absence is felt by Martin St-Louis's club.

He missed the last two games of the club, where he would have been very useful against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ryan Reaves.

According to Maxime Truman, the defenseman is currently on his way to the United States. We do not know the reasons for this unexpected move, but it is easy to assume that it is for medical reasons...

Arber Xhekaj has gone to the United States and it's definitely bad news: we can forget about him for the game against the Philadelphia Flyers

However, he would have been useful against Nicolas Deslauriers and company.

I'm told that Arber Xhekaj is on his way to the United States.

I don't know the reason for his trip, but one can ASSUME that it's for medical reasons.

Meeting with a specialist doctor? Surgery? We'll probably find out soon enough..-Maxime Truman

It will be interesting to follow this case over the coming days. Knowing that number 72 underwent a major shoulder surgery last season, it is hoped that the issue has not recurred...

It is also recalled that the 23-year-old defenseman missed some games at the beginning of the season due to an injury.

In 44 games with the CH this season, Xhekaj has accumulated 3 goals and 7 assists for a total of 10 points. He had accumulated 11 points in 17 games with the Rocket during his time with the club earlier this season.

In case you missed it, Laraque revealed how Xhekaj was important to his team and delivered a clear message to Ryan Reaves:
