The renowned NHL insider, Elliotte Friedman, has just revealed a major scoop regarding a potential trade in the Montreal Canadiens organization involving Arber Xhekaj.

According to his information, Kent Hughes has received interest from several league teams for the defenseman's services. Behind the scenes, it's suggested that the value of "The Sheriff" would be at least a first-round pick.

"Friedman says that teams have called about Xhekaj, but the Canadiens haven't even considered the idea of trading him. Clearly, he is appreciated throughout the league."

Despite this interest, the Sportsnet journalist also stated that the Canadiens have not considered trading him, which speaks volumes about General Manager Kent Hughes' intentions towards his 22-year-old defenseman.


Friedman's statement also reflects the unique profile Xhekaj possesses, highly sought after by several NHL teams.

It's reassuring to learn that Hughes has no intention of letting him go, even though there is a significant surplus of left-handed defensemen in the organization.
