  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Scores in loss

    Xhekaj scored a goal on three shots and had one hit over 16:35 of ice time in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Washington. Xhekaj unloaded a bomb from the point that eluded Darcy Kuemper for Montreal's first goal. It was the second goal of the season for Xhekaj and his first since being recalled from AHL Laval in late January. He's been in and out of the lineup since the recall, but Xhekaj is playing regularly now with Jordan Harris (upper body) sidelined.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Rings post for assist

    Xhekaj had an assist and two blocked shots over 12:29 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Capitals. Xhekaj had one missed shot but it made a lot of noise, caroming off the post and onto the stick of Nick Suzuki, who scored his second goal in a span of 57 seconds. The helper was Xhekaj's first point since being recalled from AHL Laval on Jan. 22.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Scratched Saturday

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Added to IR

    Xhekaj (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday. The designation is retroactive to Xhekaj's last game, which was Nov. 16 against Vegas, so he can be activated whenever he is cleared to return. The blueliner did not travel with the team on the road. In a corresponding move, Montreal recalled Joel Armia from AHL Laval, and he will join the team for Saturday afternoon's tilt against the Kings.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Won't finish Thursday's game

    Xhekaj suffered an upper-body injury and won't return to Thursday's game versus the Golden Knights. Xhekaj appeared to injure his left shoulder after sustaining a hit. It's not his surgically repaired right shoulder, which was an injury that ended his 2022-23 campaign prematurely. The 22-year-old defenseman can be considered day-to-day until another update is available.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Chips in with assist in win

    Xhekaj posted an assist in Monday's 3-1 road victory against the Sabres. The point was his first since also posting an apple in the wild 6-5 shootout loss Oct. 11 against the Maple Leafs. He also had a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and a minor penalty Monday, giving him at least one infraction in four of five games this season. Xhekaj has 23 PIM through five outings, helping fantasy managers in formats rewarding bad behavior.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Whistled early and often

    Xhekaj had an assist, three hits and 17 PIM in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Toronto. Xhekaj is no stranger to the physical side of hockey and wasted little time mixing it up. All three of his penalties -- two minutes for instigating a fight, five minutes for fighting and a 10-minute misconduct -- were assessed in the first period for his brawl with noted tough guy Ryan Reaves. Xhekaj later produced an assist in the third period when his shot from the point was tipped in by Alex Newhook. Xhekaj had 159 hits and 101 PIM over 51 games in 2022-23.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Expected for Wednesday

    Xhekaj is expected to suit up for Montreal in Wednesday's season opener against Toronto, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports. Xhekaj was not on the ice during Tuesday's practice, because the Canadiens sent him down to AHL Laval in what amounts to a paper transaction. Montreal general manager Kent Hughes had to juggle to get under the salary cap, hence sending the defenseman to the Rocket. Xhekaj should be in the lineup Wednesday as both Christian Dvorak (knee) and Carey Price (knee) have been added to long-term injured reserve.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Done for season

    Xhekaj (shoulder) will undergo season-ending surgery on his right shoulder next week. Xhekaj has already been out for six games, and now his rookie year will come to a close. The 22-year-old defenseman ended with 13 points, 159 hits, 101 PIM, 75 shots on goal and 46 blocked shots in 51 contests. He is already on injured reserve, and it's unclear if his recovery from the surgery will impact him ahead of next season's training camp.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Adds to power play

    Xhekaj had a power-play goal and assist in Thursday's 7-2 loss to Carolina. He added three shots on goal and three hits over 19:26 of ice time. Xhekaj gave Montreal's last-in-the-NHL power play a lift in the first period as a response to Aleksander Barkov's hat trick. The rookie defenseman, who averages 39 seconds on the power play, was added to the unit this week and skated a combined 7:43 with the man advantage in losses to the Lightning and Hurricanes. He told Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette that being on the power play is "starting to click." Xhekaj has three points on the power play over 34 games.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Returns to lineup, scores

    Xhekaj scored a goal on two shots over 16:05 of ice time in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Columbus. A scoreless game after two periods broke open in the third. Ninety seconds after the Blue Jackets opened the scoring, Xhekaj's shot from the point made it through traffic for his third goal of the season. The blueline carousel continued for Montreal; Xhekaj and Johnny Kovacevic were back in the lineup Wednesday after being healthy scratches Tuesday. They replaced Chris Wideman and Jordan Harris.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Role could change

    Xhekaj practiced on the fourth line during Friday's practice, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. Xhekaj had been paired with Joel Edmundson, but Mike Matheson (abdomen) replaced him Friday in the injured defenseman's first full-contact practice. The arrangement of the defense Friday suggests Matheson will play Saturday while Xhekaj appears to be the odd man out. It's unclear what the Canadiens plan to do with Xhekaj, who's made a name for himself as a rookie while showing some offensive potential.

  • Canadiens' Arber Xhekaj: Active in loss

    Xhekaj had one shot on net, five hits, six blocked shots and two penalty minutes in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to New Jersey. Xhekaj led all Montreal blueliners in TOI and continues to impact games as rookie in the NHL. He leads the Canadiens with 58 hits (eighth in league) and 35 PIM, while ranking sixth with 19 blocks.
