MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced Monday that the team has agreed to terms on a three-year, entry level contract (2017-18 to 2019-20) with defenseman Victor Mete.

Mete led the team’s defensemen in goals (tied for sixth in the OHL) and in points, ranking second among the team’s defensemen in assists and in differential (+36). He tallied five of his goals on the powerplay and he added six game-winning goals. In two playoffs contests Mete has produced two points (1 goal, 1 assist) and a +3 differential.

The 5’09” and 174 lbs defenseman has amassed 105 points (30 goals, 75 assists) in 179 regular season games since his debut at the junior level. Mete has scored eight powerplay goals, one while shorthanded, seven game-winning goals and has served 46 penalty minutes.
