Two teams from the Montreal Canadiens division just added some heavy hitters to their respective lineups, and that's bad news for young Arber Xhekaj.

After seeing the Toronto Maple Leafs reach an agreement with the giant Ryan Reaves, we learned a bit later that the Ottawa Senators have done the same with the addition of tough guy Zack MacEwen.

Of course, we don't want unnecessary fights, especially since it's because of this that the young Canadiens defender's season abruptly ended last February.

However, it seems evident that Xhekaj will likely be tested by these two strongmen, especially with the Senators, as he roughed them up last year.


At 27 years old, MacEwen signed a three-year contract with Ottawa, earning him $775,000 per season. He's clearly part of the organization's medium-term plans. In 186-career matches, he has accumulated 28 points and 245 penalty minutes.

As for Reaves, well, his resume no longer needs an introduction, as he's been the terror of the NHL for several seasons now. He is considered by most to be the best in his field.
