Arber Xhekaj May Be in Serious Hot Water on April 7th

In recent days, a name has been drawing a lot of attention on the ice, as well as in the media, namely that of a monster named Matt Rempe, who plays for the New York Rangers.

The 21-year-old, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 240 pounds, is currently making a smashing debut in the NHL. After just five short games, the Rangers' sixth-round pick in 2020 already has four fights under his belt, facing some very formidable opponents.

After facing Nicolas Deslauriers Friday night in what was certainly the fight of the year, and perhaps even of the decade, he fought yesterday against another tough Québécois, Mathieu Olivier.

Here are the two fights in question within three days:

We even learned that the young man really is fearless, as he was invited to fight during the game by D-Lo right from the warm-up period.

Xhekaj in hot water, coming April 7th?

Technically, on the list of the league's most feared players, there's a certain Arber Xhekaj from the Canadiens, and it seems that all the tough guys end up going against Rempe.

Will we see a fight between the two players during the next matchup between the CH and the Blue Shirts?

One thing is for sure, this colossus from New York won't be an easy opponent for the Sheriff who will have to be very careful.
