Victor Mete did not return to the Montreal Canadiens’ bench to start the second period. The team has announced he will not be back tonight.

RDS showed a clip from the first period of him flexing his finger while speaking with head athletic therapist Graham Rynbend. Hopefully it is a minor injury and the rookie defenceman won’t miss significant time.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, it does appear to be fairly serious, forcing Mete to head back to Montreal rather than flying with the team to Boston.
