Arber Xhekaj is in high demand across the NHL because he is a quite unique player and because general managers know that Kent Hughes has too many defensemen.

Indeed, a player who acts as an enforcer while being a rookie, who knows how to play hockey very well, and who is starting to understand where the line is to stay out of the penalty box is rare.
In the playoffs, this type of player is priceless and has immense value.

Spectacular Trade Offer with Calgary for Arber Xhekaj

According to reliable sources, David Pagnotta mentioned that the Flames called the Canadiens and Kent Hughes to inquire about the price for Xhekaj.
I don't know the exact proposal or the return requested by Hughes, but according to rumors, it would start with at least the 9th pick in the upcoming draft.
If I'm bringing this up, it's because it's very interesting. The Canadiens currently have a wealth of promising young defensemen but need reinforcement in their offense.
Imagine a scenario where Kent Hughes manages to select Ivan Demidov or Cayden Lindstrom with the 5th pick, and then Tij Iginla is still available at the 9th pick. Would you accept this trade?
We know that the Canadiens have met Jarome's son several times and that the interest is very strong. Will Kent Hughes be tempted?
