  • Canadiens' Victor Mete: More work needed

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/30/18) Mete will work to improve his play away from the puck and defensively while assigned to AHL Laval, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    In a not-so-surprising move, the Canadiens assigned Mete to the minors Thursday. As a 19-year-old last season, Mete had bypassed the AHL, going straight from juniors to the NHL. He'll make his AHL debut Friday. Coach Claude Julien said he was pleased with Mete offensively, but the young blueliner needs work in other areas. Specifically, Julien talked about anticipating the play and being more aggressive. "Sometimes it's about getting there first. It's anticipation, because he's not a big player, anticipating well and getting to the puck first," said the coach. "Sometimes it's about how to close quickly and good stick. So, in other words, staying away from just kind of trying to contain. Because when we get in that situation we spend a lot of time in our own end." Mete opened the season on the top pair but was quickly demoted to the third pair and removed from the power-play units. The signs of a demotion were there.

    Canadiens' Victor Mete: Sent back to minors

    (11/29/18) Mete was reassigned to AHL Laval on Thursday.

    Mete has compiled 11 assists to complement a plus-11 rating over 72 career games in a Montreal sweater. However, with captain Shea Weber having returned from a knee injury, the depth defenseman is no longer needed at the top level. Mete remains a logical option to return to the big club if -- or more likely, when -- injuries occur on the back line.

    Canadiens' Victor Mete: Notches first point

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/2/18) Mete had an assist, two shots and two blocked shots over 17:05 of ice time in Thursday's 6-4 win over Washington.

    Mete doggedly pursued the puck behind the Washington net and won a battle against two Caps to help set up Jesperi Kotkaniemi's game-tying goal. It was the 20-year-old's first point of the season. He opened the campaign on the top pair and part of the power play, but he's been relegated to the third pair and getting little power-play ice time since returning from a hand injury.

    Canadiens' Victor Mete: Returns on third pair

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/24/18) Mete returned to action Tuesday after missing two games due to a hand injury. He had two shots and blocked one over 14:41 of ice time in a 3-2 win over the Flames.

    Mete skated on the third pair, and his ice time was a low among Montreal's blueliners, which probably had something to do with him returning from injury. Normally, he's on the top pair with Jeff Petry and getting some power-play ice time.

    Canadiens' Victor Mete: Cleared to play Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/23/18) Mete (hand) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's clash with Calgary.

    Mete -- who missed two games after being hit in the hand by a puck -- will bump Karl Alzner to an observer role. The 20-year-old Mete is pointless through five games this season, but considering he managed just seven helpers in 49 outings last year, probably shouldn't be counted on for offensive contributions.
