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.

Through the Canadiens first four games, Mete averages 17:53 minutes of ice time.

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.
