The Montreal Canadiens have placed defenceman Victor Mete on waivers, the team announced on Sunday.

Mete, 22, has missed a number of games as a healthy scratch this season, including Saturday night's 5-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

In 14 games this season, he has three assists and a plus-3 rating. In a corresponding move, the Canadiens have called up 27-year-old defenceman Xavier Ouellet to the teams' taxi squad, according to AHL transactions.

Also on waivers ahead of Monday's trade deadline are Sami Vatanen, Alex Biega, Danny DeKeyser, Josh Healey and Cody Goloubef.
