by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Monahan (back) skated on his own early Tuesday morning, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.

Monahan remains day-to-day with his back strain, but his returning to the ice even in a limited capacity should be considered a big step in the rehab process.

Flames' Sean Monahan: Day-to-day with strained back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Monahan is listed as day-to-day with his back strain.

The Flames are playing it safe with Monahan after watching the stud pivot strain his back while training earlier this month. Training camp is still in its infancy and yet GM Brad Treliving has already addressed the media with injury updates to Monahan, Mikael Backlund (concussion) and defenseman Ladislav Smid, who has been ruled out for the season due to a neck injury.

Flames' Sean Monahan: Takes next step in rehab from back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Monahan has done light skating and solo drills this week as he looks to fully recover from an offseason back injury, the Calgary Sun reports.

Monahan decided against participating in the World Cup of Hockey due to his strained back, which seems like a wise decision given that the international tournament promises to be highly physical and several players have already withdrawn from the event due to injuries. Having signed a seven-year, $44.625 million contract extension this summer, the Flames will be expecting a huge season from Monahan, the sixth overall pick of 2013. He'll patrol the top line and first power-play unit with the help of proven playmaker Johnny Gaudreau at left wing.

Flames' Sean Monahan: Out of World Cup of Hockey with back strain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Monahan won't play for Team North America at the upcoming World Cup of Hockey due to a back strain, Wes Gilbertson of Postmedia reports.

Monahan's ailment isn't expected to keep him sidelined for too long, so this is probably just a precautionary move for the 21-year-old forward. It seems likely that the Flames, who signed Monahan to a seven-year, $44.1 million contract extension in August, also played a part in Monahan's decision to back out of the World Cup, as they certainly don't want their No. 1 center to risk further injury ahead of the 2016-17 NHL campaign. The Flames should provide an update on Monahan's status ahead of Calgary's first preseason contest, which is set to take place on Sep. 26 against the Oilers.

Flames' Sean Monahan: Earns seven-year extension from Flames
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Monahan signed a seven-year contract extension with the Flames on Friday, TSN reports.

According to General Fanager, Monahan will make $44.1 million over the life of the contract, which takes him through the 2022-23 season. Just 21 years old, the burgeoning center has amassed 58 goals and 67 helpers between the last two campaigns while thriving on the top power-play unit with Johnny Gaudreau, a restricted free agent likely next in line for a new deal from the Flames.
