The Montreal Canadiens placed 39-year-old defenseman Mark Streit on waivers on Thursday.

Streit, appeared in two games for Montreal this season. After losing to the Washington Capitals 6-3, Streit was scratched the following game in favor of Brandon Davidson, who had sat in the press box the previous two games.

Davidson, who the Habs acquired in February via trade, has been deployed with Jordie Benn on the team's third pairing pairing. In his season debut against the Rangers Oct. 8, Davidson logged in nearly 17 minutes of ice time.

"He played well," said Canadiens head coach Claude Julien. "He had a camp that was very average, and you could tell that he was struggling, but tonight he was good. He was the Davidson that we saw last year."

The other player forcing Streit out of the lineup is Victor Mete, Montreal's fourth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Mete wasn't expected to make the Canadiens roster coming out of training camp. Streit was signed to a one-year deal this offseason. Shortly thereafter, Andrei Markov, a stalwart on Montreal's blue line, announced he was leaving the Canadiens to sign in the KHL, leaving Montreal down a veteran defenseman, but with Streit on its roster, a potential replacement with much more NHL experience.

But Mete impressed the Canadiens brass in camp, and has played on Montreal's top pairing next to Shea Weber, and has also received power play minutes. With Karl Alnzer and Jeff Petry solidifed as the second pair, it left Streit to battle for a role on the third pairing with Benn and Davidson.

Montreal had been actively shopping Streit, according to a report from Sportsnet, but have yet to find a trade partner for the veteran's services. If Streit clears waivers, he will likely report to Laval Rocket of the AHL.
