The Montreal Canadiens suffered a tough loss against the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night as defenseman Arber Xhekaj did not finish the game.
Xhekaj hit Ivan Barbashev hard in the second period. It appears that the defender injured his shoulder and did not return to the game.
In 16 games this season, Xhekaj collected three points and received 47 penalty minutes.
Last season, Xhekaj missed the final weeks of the regular season due to right shoulder surgery.
