Victor Mete isn't going back to junior just yet.

The defenseman will return to the Montreal Canadiens next Friday, ending speculation - at least for the time being - he would be sent back to the OHL's London Knights following the World Junior Hockey Championship, which ended Friday night.

Mete helped Canada win gold at the tournament, collecting three assists and firing 12 shots on goal in six games.

The 19-year-old managed only four assists in 27 games with the Canadiens before being loaned to Hockey Canada for the tourney.
