As you already know, Arber Xhekaj has been sent down to the Laval Rocket, and it's not sitting well with everyone. Fans adore him for his passion and ability to protect his teammates, but he remains, above all, a young player in need of development.

Martin St-Louis commented on this matter for the first time, and let's say he didn't hold back in telling the media to calm down.

Martin St-Louis on what Arber Xhekaj needs to focus on while down in Laval: "just be a pro, just work. You guys are making a bigger deal out of this; he's a young player, it's part of his process to reach the highest ceiling he's going to reach as a professional athlete."

The coach compares the situation to that of Justin Barron, who made a few back-and-forths before sticking with the Canadiens. He also mentions that Jayden Struble's performance has absolutely nothing to do with this decision.
