8. Victor Mete: 43 career points

Another Habs draft pick that would eventually be lost on waivers after falling down the depth chart. Though he could really skate, his offensive production was limited.

Mete was drafted in the 4th round of the 2016 NHL Draft. He would make his NHL debut as a teenager, playing in the 2017-18 season and earning some playing time alongside Shea Weber on the top pairing. It seemed like he would blossom into a terrific puck moving defender, but it didn’t work out.

The undersized, but extremely fast left defenceman has scored five goals and 43 points in 236 career NHL games. He played the first 185 games of his career with the Habs before they put him on the waiver wire last season.

Mete’s most productive NHL season was the 2018-19 campaign when he had zero goals and 13 points. It is kind of telling that someone whose best offensive season included no goals is still number 8 on the list of point producers drafted by Bergevin.

Mete finished last season with the Ottawa Senators but it was announced he will not receive a qualifying offer from them and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
