The Montreal Canadiens don’t have a lot on their plate this offseason when it comes to their own free agents. However, that isn’t stopping the franchise from trying to sign defenseman Victor Mete, who is playing in the final year of his entry-level contract. TSN’s Pierre LeBrun reports that the Canadiens have already begun negotiations with the 21-year-old.

Mete surprised a few people several years ago when he made the roster out of training camp at 19 years old with hopes his fast skating and defensive-first abilities might complement veteran Shea Weber. However, Weber got injured and Mete struggled. He played 49 games but was often scratched due to the fact that he wasn’t ready. He settled in last season, playing 71 games, and has been a solid defensive presence since then. Mete finally scored his first NHL goal last week after going scoreless in 126 straight games.
