Mete (foot) was a full participant in Monday's training camp session, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports. Prior to the league shutdown, Mete missed nine games due to his foot injury and was expected to miss the rest of the regular season. With the defender now fully fit, he figures to slot into a top-four role on the blue line. Considering he tallied just 11 points in 51 games this year, fantasy players shouldn't be banking on him to produce offensively in the playoffs.
Mete (foot) is skating with the Canadiens as part of the league's Return to Play. When Mete was hurt back in February, he was expected to miss the remainder of the season; however, that was prior to the league going on hiatus. With the extra time off, it's possible the defender will be ready to go for the play-in series versus the Penguins, though no official announcement has come from the team. Still, the fact that he is skating with the club is certainly a step in the right direction.
Mete will miss the remainder of the regular season with a fractured foot. The Canadiens are a longshot to make the playoffs at this point, so in all likelihood, Mete will have to wait for the 2020-21 campaign for his next opportunity to play. If that ends up being the case, the third-year blueliner will finish the season having notched four goals and 11 points while registering a plus-5 rating in 51 games. The 2015 fourth-round pick will continue to be a solid bottom-four option for Montreal next year, but his lack of offensive upside will keep him off the radar in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.
Mete (lower body) won't play in Tuesday's game against Vancouver and is listed on injured reserve per the NHL's media site. Mete will miss his third straight game dealing with the lower-body issue. His placement on injured reserve will keep him out at least a week, meaning the defenseman will miss another two more games. With Mete sidelined, Christian Folin is expected to round out the lineup on the back end.
Mete (lower body) will be sidelined for the Habs' next two contests, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Mete was stuck in a 17-game goal drought prior to getting hurt and managed just two assists over that stretch. The blueliner has already set a career high in goals (four) and needs just three more points to top his 13-point 2018-19 campaign. With Mete unavailable, Christian Folin will return to the lineup for the first time since Feb. 6 against Anaheim.
