Arber Xhekaj receives high praise from Toronto Maple Leafs players

Arber Xhekaj, a defenseman for the Montreal Canadiens, is gradually establishing himself in the National Hockey League.

Two Maple Leafs players had the following to say about him:

"He's a big guy who's not afraid to play physically and has shown he's not afraid of anyone."

- Michael Bunting



"I have tremendous respect for what he has accomplished."

- Wayne Simmonds

Many players pay attention to him when he speaks up, and he frequently sticks up for his teammates.

Could he inherit a "A" on his jersey in an effort to support the current captain with Joel Edmundson's impending departure?

Without a doubt, Xhekaj is a strong leader who will eventually have a letter on his jersey.
