As we reported to you earlier this week, the management of the Montreal Canadiens offered the young striker Florian Xhekaj his first professional contract in his career.

Following the signing of the contract, the Laval Rocket announced that the younger brother ofArber Xhekaj will finish the regular season in the American League to help the team try to qualify for a playoff spot.

Yesterday, he joined his new teammates to participate in a first training session in Cleveland.

He who was training as a 13th striker, everything indicates that he will not be included in the lineup during this evening’s match and that he will be given time to familiarize himself with his new teammates before making him play a first match.

Following the training, the main person revealed what his nickname was and it’s simply perfect.

Him whose brother is nicknamed “The Sheriff”he indicated that his nickname in junior was “The deputy”.

Imagine the scenario if he reaches the NHL in the near future and his brother is still in Montreal, we could have “The Sheriff” And “The deputy” with the Canadian!

There are only four games left in the Rocket’s regular schedule. It will be interesting to see what the head coach Jean-François Houle will have a plan with him for the future.

  • Aged 19, Florian Xhekaj is a 4th round pick (101st overall) in 2023. This season, he compiled a record of 34 goals and 31 assists for a total of 65 points in 63 games in addition to adding 5 points in 6 playoff games.
