Arber Xhekaj's story is one of the best in recent years. Invited as an undrafted player to the Habs' camp last year, the defenceman turned a lot of heads and eventually earned an entry-level contract.

It's fair to say that this is a great legacy left by Marc Bergevin. A year later, Xhekaj has gone from being a guest to being very close to the NHL. According to former CH scout Grant McCagg, the defenseman is ready for the big league:
"What a find that Xhekaj is. Nice parting gift from Bergevin. His IQ, mobility, shooting and puck control are all above average. And he's 6'4" 238 lbs and tough. He's NHL ready in my opinion. With Edmundson's injury, he could make the team." - Grant McCagg

Xhekaj did very well at the Rookie Tournament and was once again very solid in the intrasquad game with a goal, as well as being solid in his zone and developing great chemistry with Jordan Harris.
