in breaking news today, the Montreal Canadiens have announced that Arber Xhekaj will miss the remainder of their season due to undergoing shoulder surgery.

With just 5 games remaining in their season, the Montreal Canadiens are already looking to next season as they are slated to miss the playoffs for the third season in a row. The disappointment for Canadiens fans is massive and only got worse today.
The Canadiens announced via social media that Arber Xhekaj will miss the final 5 games of the year, as he is set to undergo left shoulder surgery. He is expected to be back and healthy for game one of next season.
Defenseman Arber Xhekaj will undergo season-ending surgery to his left shoulder tomorrow. He is expected to be ready for next season.

Xhekaj had an up-and-down season this year for the Canadiens, which is to be expected as he continues his development. In 44 games for the Canadiens, he was able to score 3 goals and 7 assists 10 points, and more impressively was a plus-6 rating in those games.
We wish Xhekaj the best in his recovery this offseason!
