A few weeks ago, some observers thought that Arber Xhekaj's future with the Montreal Canadiens was not guaranteed, but the scenario seems to have changed recently.

Indeed, the number 72 of the Canadiens is finally playing up to his talent, quickly becoming a key element within the Montreal defensive brigade.
Furthermore, the sheriff is currently in the last year of his rookie contract and will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. Kent Hughes will thus have a significant file to manage this summer, especially since the defenseman will undoubtedly ask for a salary increase, given that he currently earns only $828,333.
It will be very interesting to see the contract extension that the general manager of the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge will want to offer him, especially since Arber Xhekaj plays a robust style of game that was clearly missing from the organization in his absence.
During an appearance on the 5 à 7 show Tuesday night, Norman Flynn made an important statement regarding the eventual contract extension of Wifi. Indeed, according to him, the CH should offer him a three-year deal at a salary close to two million dollars per year.
"I would give him a contract of 1.5 to 2 million dollars per season for three years." - Norman Flynn

At 23 years old, the 6-foot-4, 240-pound defenseman has recorded three goals and four assists (7 points) in 29 games so far this season. He has also amassed an impressive total of 11 points in 17 games with the Laval Rocket in the American League.
Do you believe this amount is fitting for the contribution that Xhekaj brings to the ice? In your opinion, does he deserve a more lucrative contract?
Certainly, this will be a situation to closely watch in the coming months!
