Here is a major development in the NHL trade market, involving Arber Xhekaj and the Calgary Flames, who hold the 9th overall pick in the draft.

As teams continue to call Kent Hughes to try to acquire the Sheriff, the Canadiens continue to refuse the offers.
However, we just had a new twist that could change everything.

Scoop from David Pagnotta: the Calgary Flames (9th overall pick) are interested in Arber Xhekaj on the trade market

For teams to keep calling so much, we imagine Kent Hughes is listening to offers, but the price to pay for Xhekaj is probably extremely high.
«And for the first time during the offseason, we heard a team name come up. David Pagnotta, in his article of the day, brought up the name of the Calgary Flames.» - Charles-Alexis Brisebois, DLC

It's hard to say what the Calgary Flames can offer Kent Hughes, but for it to come out publicly like this, it must be quite serious.
Know that the Flames currently own the 9th overall pick in the 2024 NHL Draft.
We imagine that the discussions (for Xhekaj) start with this selection.
Let's recall that Alexander Romanov was notably traded for a 13th overall pick, so Xhekaj would be worth a top-10 pick here.
In short, to be continued, but it is certainly an intriguing development.
«The discussions better start with the ninth overall pick in the next draft.» - DLC

In 44 games with the CH this season, Xhekaj has scored 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.
For a second consecutive season, his campaign ended prematurely due to a serious injury and surgery.
