Sean Monahan celebrated his 21st birthday on Monday.
"He's approaching 35, I think," quipped Flames head coach Bob Hartley. "He's approaching 35 with 21-year-old legs. He's a treat to coach. You teach him once and it’s in the computer, it’s in the books. He’s probably one of the smartest young players that I’ve ever coached. He understands the game, has a feel for the game and, like Johnny (Gaudreau), he’s coming up with the big goals." Monahan has 54 goals and 98 points in 158 career games. He already has one 30-plus goal season under his belt and he's likely to reach that milestone several more times over the course of his career. Oct 13 - 9:50 AM

Sean Monahan recorded an assist in a 5-1 loss to Vancouver Wednesday night.

Monahan took a big step forward in 2014-15 with 31 goals and 62 points in 81 games. He's a decent bet to finish in that range again, but we're hesitant to predict that he'll do meaningfully better than that this season.

Among other things, Sean Monahan is looking to improve on the draw this season.

That's been an area of weakness for Monahan thus far as he had a 46% success rate as a rookie and won just 49.3% of his draws in 2014-15. If he can build on that though, he'll at least leave the territory of being a liability on the draw. Calgary was among the worst teams when it came to faceoffs last season, so having Monahan take a step up in that regard would help the team fill a significant hole.

Sean Monahan popped his first goal of the pre-season in Friday night's 4-1 win over Vancouver.

Monahan was everywhere, playing 17:28 which includes 7:11 on the power play and 1:15 on the kill. He even threw a couple of hits and had a couple of takeaways. The young stud had 31 goals and 62 points in 81 games for the Flames last season, and it looks like they're counting on him to repeat his production this season.

Sean Monahan doesn't want to make a prediction of how he'll do in 2015-16.

Monahan scored 31 goals and 62 points in 81 contests last season, so naturally expectations are high. "I never really have expectations, number-wise," Monahan said. "I think once you have expectations on yourself with numbers, it gets in your head. I just try to be better than I was the year before. By doing that, you usually improve your numbers." For the record, we're predicting that he'll produce similar numbers to his 2014-15 showing.

The Calgary Flames will enter the 2015-16 season strong down the middle.

The Flames inked Mikael Backlund to a contract on Saturday but the real strength at center are Sean Monahan and Sam Bennett, their top two picks in the last two drafts. Monahan exploded last season on the scoreboard with 31 goals and 62 points while Bennett made a great showing at the end of the season after he recovered from shoulder surgery at the beginning of the season. The future certainly looks bright for the Calgary Flames, especially at center.

Sean Monahan was playing through a leg injury during the playoffs.

Monahan had a great sophomore season with 31 goals and 62 points in 81 contests. He went on to score another three goals and six points in 11 playoff contests. Still just 20 years old, Monahan should be a big part of the Flames' offense for years to come. He might not take another big step forward in 2015-16, but we don't expect him to regress either.
May 12 - 5:20 PM

Sean Monahan scored his third goal of the playoffs in dazzling fashion during Friday night's 4-2 Game Four loss.

After Monahan took Johnny Gaudreau's pass ahead of the offensive blue line on the left wing, Monahan proceeded to cut across the offensive zone to the right wing while weaving through Ducks defenders Francios Beauchemin and Hampus Lindholm before flipping the puck past Frederik Andersen. The goal tied the game at one just 39 seconds after Jakob Silfverberg has given the Ducks the lead early on in the first. And you can bet it electrified the home crowd to boot.

The Calgary Flames dropped a 3-0 decision to the Anaheim Ducks in Game Two of their best-of-seven series.

The young Flames squad overwhelmed Vancouver in the first round but they have been unable to get anything going against a much more complete Anaheim team. Calgary has been outscored 9-1 in the first two games of the series, and they will need to find the back of the net more frequently at home if they hope to extend the series. Sean Monahan finished the night with a minus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and one shot on goal.
May 4 - 12:51 AM

Sean Monahan is looking forward to the opportunity to go head-to-head against Ryan Getzlaf.

The Flames are getting ready to start their second round series against the Anaheim Ducks. "When you’re playing those big minutes, you want to play against the other team's top line," Monahan said. "You want to be better than them. That's something that I look forward to and something that I want to do. If you can out-battle a Getzlaf or be better than him or shut him down, you have a good chance of winning that game." Monahan has been part of a very effective line with Johnny Gaudreau and Jiri Hudler. If the Flames are going to overcome the Ducks, that trio will have to have a strong series.

Sean Monahan scored a goal in Calgary's 4-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.

It was the sophomore's first career playoff marker. He also registered four shots on goal in 18:50 minutes of ice time. With that victory, Calgary has a 2-1 series lead over the Canucks.

Flames coach Bob Hartley denied that Sean Monahan is dealing with a shoulder injury.

The speculation stems from Monahan's time in Calgary's practices or lack thereof. He skipped Monday's skate after Sunday's off day and while he was on the ice Tuesday, it was for just 10 minutes. Monahan revealed that he was dealing with an illness, but is fine now. Either way, he still logged 20:09 minutes in Game 1 on Wednesday.

Sean Monahan left Tuesday's practice early, but that was apparently the plan all along.

"Obviously I had a few days off there to get some rest and the plan was for me to go out there and see how I feel," Monahan said. "I felt good." He added that he will play in Game 1. Even still, it's worthy of note because Monahan didn't practice on Monday and Sunday was a day off for the team. He recorded at least a point in 10 of his last 11 contests and it would obviously be a big blow for the Flames if he was hurt.

Sean Monahan had an assist in Calgary's 3-1 win on Thursday.

With that, Monahan's point streak is at six games. Since the start of March, Monahan has 10 goals and 20 points in 19 contests.

Sean Monahan scored his 31st goal in Calgary's 3-2 crucial win over Arizona on Tuesday.

Monahan's tally put the Flames up for good midway through the third period. The goal extended the 20 year-old's point streak to five games (2G,3A). He now has 31 goals and 61 points in 80 games this season. Johnny Gaudreau picked up his 23rd while David Jones tallied his 14th. Dennis Wideman picked up two assists to help the cause.
