Just before the end of the season, Arber Xhekaj had to leave the Canadiens due to a shoulder injury that required surgery.

Despite reviewing the replays, the exact cause of his injury was unclear. It was later revealed that Xhekaj had been dealing with the shoulder issue for some time but chose to keep playing to avoid missing games.
Remarkably, Xhekaj played outstanding hockey alongside David Savard while injured, which speaks volumes about his development and determination.
Recently, Xhekaj made an appearance at the CN Sports Complex with Georges Laraque and Chris Nilan for a charitable event.

Encouragingly, Xhekaj appeared to be in great shape, indicating that his rehabilitation is going well.

The Canadiens had stated that the imposing defenseman would be ready for the next season, and his presence on the ice with a stick in hand suggests that this timeline is accurate.
This gesture by Arber, Georges, and Chris shows the strong bond that both current and former players have with the Montreal Canadiens and the community.
