Arber Xhekaj will send Ryan Reaves to the minors, Georges Laraque believes

I know, I know: Arber Xhekaj isn’t just a guy who can fight.

He has good hockey skills and these days he plays with confidence (and with David Savard), which means we are seeing more and more of the defender he can become.

But when we talk about Xhekaj, we think about his battles. And obviously, the confrontation against Ryan Reaves catches our attention.

At the beginning of the season, the Canadiens Sheriff arrested the Maple Leafs strongman, which caused a stir. After all, Reaves isn’t exactly an easy customer in the NHL.

And WiFi put him to bed.

Tonight is definitely a game to watch for Xhekaj (as we’ve known for a while), as it will be his first time facing Reaves’ Maple Leafs since the battle.

It’s not normal to play so little against a division rival… but anyway.

All this to say that Georges Laraque has spoken out on this issue. Yesterday on Tony Marinaro’s Sick Podcast, the former NHL strongman declared that Xhekaj was going to beat Reaves.

At what point? To the point where Laraque feels his favorite will send Reaves back to the minors after a battle that seems inevitable on the sidelines of tonight’s showdown at the Bell Center.

After his comment, Georges laughed, visibly proud of his decision.

It is clear that Reaves is a player who will have to fight against Xhekaj to save his honor and his difficult season. And we understand that Xhekaj knows his situation and hopes to have his hands full too.

A lot
