Montreal Canadiens: What Would Victor Mete Extension Look Like?

The Montreal Canadiens have a couple of key restricted free agents after the 2019-20 season that are now eligible for an extension. What would it take to extend Victor Mete? The Montreal Canadiens hit a home run in the 2016 NHL Draft when they took Victor Mete with the 100th overall selection in the fourth […] Montreal Canadiens: What Would Victor Mete Extension Look Like? - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Grade Victor Mete’s season

After a slow start led to a short demotion to the AHL, Mete emerged as a different player. Victor Mete had quite a rise to the NHL level. As a fourth-round pick in 2016, he spent just one more year in the Junior ranks, making the Montreal Canadiens’ roster to start the 2017-18 season. August 28, 2018: 2018 Montreal Canadiens Top 25 Under 25: #4 Victor Mete The debut was a good one, moving him up from the #12 spot he had claimed in our 2017 Top 25 Under 25 before his rookie season began. A strong year, with significant time alongside Shea Weber on the top pairing, placed him in the top...

Victor Mete’s offensive game is about more than goals

Victor Mete’s offensive game is about more than goals

The Canadiens defenceman creates offence, even if he’s not the one to score. There are two prominent storylines when it comes to Montreal Canadiens defenceman Victor Mete. The first is whether he is the right guy to play beside Shea Weber. The second is the fact that he has yet to score a goal in the National Hockey League. In a lot of ways, the two storylines intersect. Mete’s offensive numbers don’t appear to be what you would want from a player in the top four. People often miscast Mete as an offensive defenceman who cannot score. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Players...

Investigating the ideal left side for the Canadiens’ defence

Investigating the ideal left side for the Canadiens’ defence

With the arrival of Ben Chiarot, where do the other LDs fit for this upcoming season? Montreal appears to have found at least a partial solution for their gap on the left side of the defence in free agency when they landed Ben Chiarot on a three-year deal. Now comes the difficult part of trying to sort out where each piece fits in the opening-night roster. Outside of Chiarot, there are the established members, Victor Mete and Brett Kulak, the inconsistent Mikey Reilly, the struggling Karl Alzner, and last year’s off-season signee, Xavier Ouellet. There is also a trio in the AHL who might...

Analyzing Victor Mete’s role as a top-pairing defenceman

New players came and went this season, but Mete and Shea Weber found themselves back together once again. Victor Mete had a very good rookie season, starting the 2017-18 campaign alongside Shea Weber because ... well, there wasn’t really anyone else do it. His speed and steady defensive game complemented Weber’s abilities well, so it was a mutual relationship for the Montreal Canadiens’ top defenceman. Mete played just 49 games in his first year, heading off to the World Juniors in December and missing NHL time after sustaining an injury while playing in the tournament. Weber dealt...

Montreal Canadiens Signing Ben Chiarot Puts Pressure On Victor Mete

The Montreal Canadiens signed Ben Chiarot to a three year contract. Chiarot is not likely to be a top pairing defenseman and neither is Brett Kulak. That means Victor Mete has to step up next season. The Montreal Canadiens dipped into the free agency market yesterday and signed Ben Chiarot. They gave the former Winnipeg […] Montreal Canadiens Signing Ben Chiarot Puts Pressure On Victor Mete - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
