In the last few seconds, the Canadiens officially announced their lineup for tonight's game against the Anaheim Ducks, and the verdict has been reached for the young Arber Xhekaj.

Arber Xhekaj sent back to the lineup!



Finally, the wait is over for the Sheriff, finally ending his time in the stands, as he will be in uniform tonight at the Bell Centre.

It will be a great opportunity for him to prove himself to his head coach, Martin St-Louis.


The injury to Jordan Harris certainly contributed to this decision, but still, St-Louis is placing his trust in him again.

Xhekaj will be paired with Johnatan Kovacevic on the third defensive pairing.

At 23 years old, the young defenseman, standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighing 240 pounds, has accumulated four points in 21 games this season in the NHL, with a positive differential of +1 and 53 penalty minutes.

In the AHL, he has 11 points in 17 games.

Do you believe that Arber Xhekaj should play in all the games for the rest of the season?
