Ever since he won his fight against the league's most feared player, Ryan Reaves, which looked more like a show of strength than a boxing match, it must be said, young Arber Xhekaj has been at the center of many discussions.

Many have praised his courage, as he did not hesitate for a single second to defend his teammate Kaiden Guhle, who had just taken a dangerous back check from Reaves. Others also believe that 'Wifi' sent a serious message to the other heavyweights of the NHL.

In short, discussions about this fight resumed in full swing yesterday, as Reaves commented for the first time on what happened during that meeting. He even stated that he wanted a rematch.

He also mentioned not liking the fact that Xhekaj jumped him.


"I don't like being jumped. I don't know if I've ever really jumped anyone. You want to fight? Ask me." -Ryan Reaves

The Leafs' pugilist's responses have stirred up media discussions, and even former tough guy Georges Laraque allowed himself to comment on the situation. He did not mince his words towards Reaves, boldly contradicting the latter's statements.

"Bruh, you hit Guhle from behind, you knew what was going to happen, and you had plenty of chances for revenge later in the game and you didn't take them..." -Georges Laraque

It says a lot when a player who was one of the NHL's greatest fighters gets involved like this.

Let's just say hostilities promise to be high for the next duel between the two teams, which is unfortunately scheduled for March 9th. However, hockey players always have long memories, and I have no doubt that it should shake things up quite a bit.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT ARBER XHEKAJ IS UNTOUCHABLE WITH THE CANADIENS?
