Monahan was extended a qualifying offer Monday by the Flames. Monahan makes up a youthful core of players in Calgary that are turning the team into a serious playoff contender. Centering the dynamic Johnny Gaudreau, the 21-year-old tallied 27 goals and 36 assists while firing off 197 shots on goal. If the organization can't sign him to a long term deal on their own, they can certainly expect Monahan to receive a significant offer that they will be forced to match to avoid losing him.
Monahan's shoulder injury suffered in the season finale is not serious, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 reports. Monahan ended the season on an absolute tear and finished with 27 goals and 36 assists in 81 games. It's good to see that the third-year player won't have many issues heading into the offseason and Monahan is primed for a solid next couple of seasons fantasy-wise after back-to-back 60-point campaigns.
Monahan sustained an upper-body injury in Saturday's game against the Wild and will not return. It's an unfortunate ending to an impressive campaign for Monahan, who deposited 27 goals and 36 assists in 80 games, with 20 of those points taking place on the man advantage. It's worth noting that Monahan produced one goal and six assists between March 28 and April 7; that's pretty much prime time for helping folks to fantasy titles. If you want to get Monahan in snake drafts next year, you'd better not be late because he's bound to go very early.
Monahan notched two assists and fired four shots on goals in Saturday's win over the Oilers. With the two assists, Monahan matched his previous career high of 62 points. The 21-year-old is finishing the season strong and has six goals and 16 points in his last 13 games dating back to March.9. Skating on the top line with Johnny Gaudreau, Monahan is a must-start in fantasy for these final few games of the season.
Monahan tallied a goal and two assists Monday as the Flames dispatched the Coyotes 5-2. Monahan has been a beast in the month of March, with five multi-point games and 15 points in 14 contests.
