Prior to NMU Metro played on two winning national championship teams with Sault Michigan Hockey Association teams, and played for the Soo Hawks and the Marquette Electricians AAA midget teams, and Waterloo Blawkhawks of the United States Hockey League.

After professional stints in the Central Hockey League (Ashville Smoke) and the East Hockey League (Pee-Dee Pride), and United Hockey League (Asheville Smoke), Metro played six seasons with Villard de Lans, France, and won two League Magnus French Hockey Championships. He was the team's all-time leading scorer
