In the past few hours, the New Jersey Devils announced a signing that will have a direct impact on Arber Xhekaj and Kent Hughes.

Many are talking about the Xhekaj effect or the Matt Rempe effect, but the tough Kurtis MacDermid has just earned a nice surprise.
He just signed a surprising three-year contract worth 3.45 million dollars with the Devils.

It's confirmed for Arber Xhekaj: he should sign a three-year contract worth around 1.5 to 2 million dollars per year

This is the conclusion of several analysts following yesterday's announcement, especially because Xhekaj is a better hockey player than MacDermid.
«Kurtis MacDermid, signed for a three-year contract extension by New Jersey, is a depth defenseman, who is physical and has a passion for always taking penalties.»

It is especially the three years of the contract that are surprising, and precisely because he is a much better player, it is certain that Arber Xhekaj was happy yesterday upon hearing this news and this contract extension.
It certainly increases the price for his services.
Case to follow.
In 44 games with the Canadiens 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 stint with the club earlier this season.
The injuries are starting to be a bit concerning in his case, but it is really not catastrophic either.
