Sean Monahan is disappointed that he won't be able to play in the World Cup of Hockey.

Monahan was going to represent Team North America at this month's tournament, but he had to pull out because he suffered a back injury while training. "I’m definitely bummed out. It’s something I was looking forward to all summer," Monahan said. "Having no playoffs and that extra summer time to train, I’ve been training so hard. I think I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in, so it’s pretty frustrating to have a little tweak like that right now. It was a tough decision, but I think it was a smart one." Last month, Monahan signed a seven-year, $44.625 million contract extension with the Flames.

Sean Monahan has pulled out of the World Cup because of a back injury.

Like Kings forward Jeff Carter, the injury occurred during off-season training. "Sean Monahan has sustained a back strain during his pre-season training and...will not be able to participate in the upcoming World Cup," said Flames GM Brad Treliving. We anticipate that this is not a long term issue and plan on having Sean healthy and ready for the start of our training camp." It sounds like this is more of a precaution than anything else. Expect Monahan to be ready for the start of the regular season. Team North America has named Vincent Trocheck as Monahan's replacement.

Sean Monahan admitted that he wants to be in Calgary for a long time.

Monahan signed a seven-year, $44.625 million deal with the Flames yesterday, but said he'd have signed a longer contract if he could have. "Loyalty is key," Monahan said. "Obviously, I want to be here. If you could play until you’re 50, I would sign a 20-year contract. This is where I want to be. Calgary is home and there’s no other fans I’d rather play in front of." There's nothing holding Monahan back from having a huge 2016-17. Don't be surprised if he hits 30 goals and 70 points next year.

The Calgary Flames have re-signed Sean Monahan to a seven-year contract extension.

The deal is reportedly worth $44.625 million ($6.375 million AAV). Monahan also gets a Partial No Trade Clause in the final three years of the contract. It took some time to get done, but the Flames have finally locked up their young star long-term. The 21-year-old has scored at least 22 goals in each of his first three NHL seasons. He scored a career-high 63 points in 2015-16. As impressive as Monahan's been so far, there's still a good chance that he'll continue improving his overall numbers. The Flames will now shift their focus to signing RFA Johnny Gaudreau.

The Calgary Flames are close to re-signing Sean Monahan, according to the Calgary Sun.

The deal could be as long as seven or eight years and worth $46 million or more. Monahan has scored at least 22 goals in each of his first three NHL seasons. The 21-year-old scored 27 goals and a career-high 63 points in 2015-16. Assuming the deal gets done, the Flames will then turn their attention on re-signing another young star in Johnny Gaudreau.

It sounds like Sean Monahan is open to giving the Calgary Flames a hometown discount on a long-term deal.

"If you're a high-end player and you're playing somewhere at a young age, that's where your heart is and that's where you want to win," Monahan said. "Our goal is to bring a Stanley Cup to Calgary, so if that's what it is, that we can bring other players in, to have a little extra money room and get them in to help us to be a better team, I think that's the idea." Monahan is a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level contract. He had 58 goals and 125 points in 162 games over the past two seasons and at the age of 21 (22 in October), he has the potential to keep growing. Even if he leaves some money on the table, any long-term deal involving him will be lucrative, possibly in the $6 million annually range, based on what other talented RFAs have gotten this summer.

Sean Monahan was in Calgary on the weekend and is in the midst of discussing a long-term contract.

Monahan's entry level deal is over and now the big money will start to flow in. Monahan is only 21 but has had 125 points in his last two seasons in 161 games, picking up 63 last season and 62 the previous year. He knows where the back of the net is as well with 31 and 27 goal seasons. Monahan is in for a big payday and should be the centerpiece of the Flames for the next several years. He is worth taking around the fifth or sixth round in most pools.

Sean Monahan left Saturday's match with Minnesota due to an upper body injury.

Monahan skated just 4:16 before departing, and did not factor into the scoresheet. His impressive season will end with 27 goals and a career best 63 points in 80 games.
Apr 9 - 8:36 PM

The poor start to the season was a huge contributing factor in the Flames not making the playoffs this season.

Sean Monahan is a big reason why the Flames will contend for years to come but he got off to a slow start as well in his third year in the NHL. "There’s no excuses. We know what we have to do to be a lot better," Monahan said. "Obviously, there was an expectation coming into this year and I don’t think we fulfilled that. Last year, we had a good run and we played hard every night and when we were down, we still believed we could win. I think this year, we kind of lost that drive at times. I think, as a leader on this team, we need to find a way to pick that back up and have a fresh start coming into next year with that drive and mentality to be a winning team." Monahan surpassed his career high in points on Thursday and now has 27 goals and 63 points with one game remaining. He is a must select pick next season in pools.
