Montreal Canadiens defenceman Victor Mete will miss out on at least two weeks with an ankle injury, the team revealed Monday.

Mete sustained the injury throughout the 2nd period of the Canadiens' 4-3 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday afternoon.

The 21-year-old has actually gathered eight points (3 objectives, 5 helps) and a plus-6 rating in 26 games this season for Montreal (11-10-6), which is mired in an eight-game winless skid (0-5-3).

Mete has taped 28 points (3 goals, 25 assists) and a plus-28 score in 146 career contests considering that being chosen by the Canadiens in the fourth round of the 2016 NHL Draft.

Likewise on Monday, Montreal positioned goaltender Keith Kinkaid on waivers.

Kinkaid, 30, sports a 1-1-3 record, 4.24 goals-against average and.875 save percentage in 6 looks (five starts) this season.
