Montreal Canadiens: Victor Mete Set To Return From Injury

The Montreal Canadiens received good news on the injury front for the first time in a while this morning. Though Jonathan Drouin, Paul Byron and Jesperi Kotkaniemi remain out of the lineup and there is no indication of how soon they will return, defenceman Victor Mete will be back in the lineup tonight.

The Canadiens play the Winnipeg Jets tonight in their final game before Christmas break. It is technically the fourth game of a seven game road trip, but the team will return to Montreal following tonight’s contest and then head to Florida to take on the Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning on the weekend.
