Victor Mete takes a shot off the foot, and looks to be in serious pain as he heads to the room. pic.twitter.com/f7TowNF8nr— Scott Matla (@scottmatla) February 19, 2020
He was supported as he skated to the bench, and is unable to return to the game.

Mete was playing on the third pairing with Xavier Ouellet in the first game of Shea Weber’s return, after spending a few contests with Ben Chiarot in the top-four. We’ll likely hear more about the severity of the injury in the coming days.
Montreal’s next game is Thursday against the Washington Capitals.
