Arber Xhekaj: Montreal Canadiens' Monumental Mistake

Jayden Struble has been playing very well since his call-up and deserves to stay in Montreal. However, according to Georges Laraque, the Canadiens should have made room for him.

"Montreal needs Xhekaj in its lineup every game; it's a serious mistake to send him down to Laval. His presence reassures the players, and he is highly respected in the NHL!" - Georges Laraque

We know that the relationship between St-Louis and Xhekaj is not great. It seems that the coach strongly admonished him after he got frustrated and took bad penalties in a game. Since then, Xhekaj has been playing cautiously.

These are still the words of Georges Laraque, who seems to be genuinely upset about the situation. It must be admitted that Xhekaj is unique on the Canadiens. There are few players like him in the NHL.
