Arber Xhekaj threw down the gloves in front of behemoth Zach Kassian and he made it look easy. The footage of that fight has been all over the NHL and now everyone knows how tough number 72 of the Tricolore is.

We even knew how the fight got started and Xhekaj admitted to instigating it by laughing at Kassian at the face-off.
According to what Arpon Basu reports, Arber was well aware that Kassian had hit Montembeault last year and that the move fell on deaf ears, as no one came to the goalie's defense.
Second, Michael Pezzetta had given Xhekaj some advice about the type of fighter Kassian is. Pezz told Arber that the Coyotes' behemoth is a technical brawler, so Xhekaj didn't give him time to assess the situation and went straight to him.
These two details are crucial to what happens next. We now know that Xhekaj doesn't just defend his teammates, he also has a long memory and anyone who goes after Habs players will have to pay the price sooner or later.
