Monahan will undergo a minor offseason wrist surgery, making him unavailable for the 2017 IIHF World Championships with Team Canada, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.
After playing in all 82 regular-season games for the Flames, including four postseason losses to the Ducks, Monahan will take some much-deserved time off the ice to regain full strength. Considering the surgery is minor in nature, it seems that the 22-year-old will be ready to go in time for Calgary's offseason festivities leading up to the 2017-18 campaign.
Monahan turned in a solid effort with a goal in all four games of the series and finished with five points, nine shots and an impressive 57.66 Corsi For percentage at five-on-five. Monahan's entering his offensive prime, so he could be in store for a career year in 2017-18, especially considering the progress the entire team made this season.
Monahan scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Ducks in Game 3. Both points came on the power play.
The big center has found twine in each of the first three games of the series, but it's been all for naught as the Flames are now down 3-0 and face a near-impossible hill to climb. Look for a big game from Monahan in Game 4, again on home ice, as he looks to help his team get in the win column and stave off elimination.
Monahan scored a goal and added a trio of assists in a 4-2 win over Colorado on Monday.
There's nothing quite like a visit from the league's worst team to help pad one's stats, which is exactly what Monahan did in this one, factoring into all four of Calgary's goals -- three of which came on the power play. He's been a man possessed since a three-game pointless streak in mid-March, ringing up 10 points in his last five contests.
Monahan scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blues.
Monahan has 11 points (five goals, six assists) in his last 10 games and remarkably none of those points have come on the power play. They're all the hard-earned type of snipe. Monahan is up to 52 points in 75 games so far and should be an automatic in lineups given his hot ways.
