One of the greatest surprises at the Montreal Canadiens this season was undoubtedly Arber Xhekaj's. The 22-year-old towering defenseman earned his spot on the big club in his first professional season, despite never being drafted, and quickly became a favorite among fans of the Tricolore.

In addition to playing a robust style of hockey and protecting his teammates, the Habs' rookie also showcased impressive skills with the puck, tallying five goals and 13 points in 51 games during his debut NHL campaign.

One thing that stands out about this young man is his unwavering authenticity despite his newfound status and immense popularity. Arber remains true to himself, demonstrating his exceptional character.

While enjoying the summer season, Xhekaj and his brother Florian performed a remarkable gesture yesterday by taking the time to visit their former elementary school, meeting the kids and even playing some hockey.


Their mother, Simona Xhekaj, added a beautiful comment to the photo:

My boys always give back.
