In his first game with the Laval Rocket, Arber Xhekaj faced the Belleville Senators, a team with several tough players he had previously clashed with, including Bokondji Imama and Riley McKay.

Despite being challenged to fight, Xhekaj consistently refused the invitations, even as tensions escalated during a scuffle. This decision marks a clear shift in his approach to the game, indicating a desire to choose his battles more carefully.

This new initiative by Xhekaj has been praised by observers and fans alike. It shows a level of maturity and strategic thinking that aligns with his development goals in the AHL. By focusing more on his overall game and less on physical altercations, Xhekaj is working to become a more well-rounded player, which could benefit his career in the long term.
