The Montreal Canadiens have just announced some bad news during a match.

The injury to defenseman Arber Xhekaj appears to be significant, and he has been placed on the injured list.

Consequently, another player has been brought in for reinforcement from the AHL.

Here is the official announcement:


"The Canadiens have recalled forward Joel Armia from the Laval Rocket. He will join the team in Los Angeles on Friday. The team has also placed defenseman Arber Xhekaj on the injured list retroactively to his last game."

- Montreal Canadiens

For Xhekaj, who naturally wants to avoid being sidelined from the lineup by a player like Jayden Struble, this situation is the worst possible scenario. He had hoped to return to play quickly, but evidently, that won't be happening.

This opens the door wide for Struble, who is currently performing very well.
