  • Maple Leafs' Victor Mete: Moving on to Toronto

    Mete signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Maple Leafs on Thursday.

    Mete was with the Senators last season, posting seven helpers in 37 contests in his second year with the team. He'll moving to Ontario's other club in 2022-23, where he'll compete for a third-pairing role.

  • Victor Mete: Won't be qualified

    Mete won't receive a qualifying offer from Ottawa this offseason, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    As such, Mete will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The 23-year-old defender, who picked up seven assists while averaging 14:37 of ice time per game through 37 appearances this season, may have to settle for a two-way deal to remain in the NHL in 2022-23.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Earns rare special-teams point

    Mete managed a power-play assist in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Canadiens.

    Mete spent parts of four seasons with the Habs, but his role hasn't changed all that much since he debuted in the NHL during the 2017-18 campaign. The third-pairing defenseman has shown third-pairing output with zero goals, seven assists, 12 hits and 30 blocked shots through 31 games.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Gathers assist in loss

    Mete notched an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Mete set up Brady Tkachuk for a third-period goal Wednesday. The 23-year-old Mete snapped a four-game point drought with his helper. The defenseman has five helpers, 12 shots on net, 16 blocked shots and a minus-11 rating in 14 appearances this year. He's unlikely to see more than a bottom-four role.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Mete was activated off the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Saturday.

    Mete will likely be in the lineup when the Senators return to action Monday versus Colorado. The 23-year-old defender has tallied four assists through nine games this season.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Mete was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday.

    Mete is still looking for his first goal of the season, which shouldn't come as a huge surprise considering he has just seven shots on goal through nine games this year. Given his limited offensive upside, few fantasy players should be impacted by his absence. In Mete's stead, Erik Brannstrom should slide into the lineup, at least until Nick Holden (COVID-19 protocols) is cleared to return.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Puts up assist Monday

    Mete registered an assist in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Mete has recorded helpers in each of his last two games, and he's up to three in six outings overall. The 23-year-old continues to see relatively sheltered minutes on the Senators' third pairing when he's in the lineup. He's contributed only six shots on net, seven blocked shots and a minus-3 rating outside of his scoring production, so fantasy managers can likely pass on the Ontario native.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Helps out on insurance tally

    Mete registered an assist in Friday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

    Mete set up Connor Brown's third-period tally that produced the final score. The 23-year-old Mete has picked up two assists, five shots on net, six blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through five contests. The Ontario native still shouldn't be considered a lock for an everyday spot in the lineup with veteran Michael Del Zotto serving as a spare blueliner.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Pens one-year deal

    Metet agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.2 million contract with Ottawa on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Mete had elected to go to arbitration after receiving a qualifying offer from the Senators but appears to have worked out a deal with the club before a hearing was even scheduled. After being acquired by the team at the trade deadline, the 23-year-old blueliner garnered one goal, one assist and 11 hits while averaging 17:27 of ice time in 14 appearances. Mete should feature prominently in Ottawa's lineup this season but will be hard-pressed to surpass the 20-point mark.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Scores two points in 14 games

    Mete played his final 14 games with Ottawa after beginning the year in Montreal, scoring a goal and an assist with the Senators.

    The Senators took the time to claim Mete from the Habs, so they'll likely give him a chance to earn ice time. He hasn't been a great option on offense, so with the Senators having other quality blueliners who are more likely to pick up points, Mete's not an attractive fantasy option.

  • Canadiens' Victor Mete: Shifts to waivers

    Mete was waived by the Canadiens on Sunday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Mete has suited up in just 14 games this season, recording four points and 10 blocked shots. The 22-year-old has 185 NHL games under his belt, and he carries a mere $785,000 cap hit this season. In turn, it wouldn't be surprising if a team claims him on waivers. Otherwise, Mete likely will land on the Canadiens' taxi squad.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: Claimed by Senators

    The Senators claimed Mete off waivers from the Canadiens on Monday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Mete played just 14 games for the Canadiens this season, but he should take on a larger role with the Senators down the stretch and in the future. The 22-year-old is a solid two-way defenseman that will be a restricted free agent this summer. According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Mete is driving to Ottawa and could be available for Monday's home matchup against the Jets.

  • Senators' Victor Mete: In lineup Monday

    Mete will make his Senators debut Monday against Winnipeg, Kyle Bukauskas of Sportsnet reports.

    Mete was claimed off waivers by Ottawa on Monday and will already make his debut with the team. He scored three assists while averaging 14:09 of ice time in 14 games with Montreal this season.

  • Canadiens' Victor Mete: Benched in third period

    Mete did not play a shift in the third period and finished with 10:31 of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

    Interim head coach Dominique Ducharme told Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette that he opted to go with more seasoned blueliners with rookie Alexander Romanov in the final period. "We thought it was pretty hard, especially tonight for the two guys (Mete and Romanov) together, so we decided to play the third period and use five defensemen to get more experience with Romy," Ducharme said. After the Canadiens lost Ben Chiarot to a hand injury in mid-March, Ducharme tried Xavier Oulett on the third pair before settling on Mete, who has three assists and a plus-3 rating over the last seven contests.

  • Canadiens' Victor Mete: Bags assist in win

    Mete had an assist and finished plus-2 in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Senators.

    Mete, who played just his 10th game Thursday, has emerged on the third pair, playing three straight games and gathering two apples during that time. The Canadiens have always been enamored by his skating and his ability to carry the puck out of the zone, skills that hint at offensive potential. Where he needs work is on the one-on-one situations. "For him, it's more about angles, sticks and making sure he's separating the stick from the puck. He has to make sure he cuts off the hands and stick of the other player when he's coming in with his body instead of getting into a wrestling match," head coach Dominique Ducharme told Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette.

  • Canadiens' Victor Mete: Re-enters lineup, helps in win

    Mete had an assist, two shots on goal and one hit in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Vancouver.

    Mete's offensive foray around the Canucks' net led to Tomas Tatar's sixth goal of the season. It was Mete's first point in eight games this season. He was back in the lineup after being a three-game healthy scratch. The 22-year-old Ontario native has rotated in on the third pair with Xavier Ouellet since Ben Chiarot suffered a hand injury that is estimated to keep him out until late April.

  • Canadiens' Victor Mete: Blocks two shots in loss

    Mete had two blocked shots over 13:46 of ice time in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Flames.

    Mete has filled in for the injured Ben Chiarot (hand) over the last two games, recording a combined one shot on net, two hits and two blocks. Chiarot's facing a multi-week absence, giving Mete an opportunity on the active roster. He's been limited to just seven games as Montreal's seventh defenseman.
