Monahan (illness) won't play Sunday against the Hurricanes, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Monahan is white-hot right now, putting up four goals and six assists with a plus- rating in his last six games. For the time being, either Ryan Lomberg or Marek Hrivik will slot into the Flames' lineup. The Flames start their five-day rest period Monday, and Monahan will be re-evaluated after that stretch.
Monahan recorded a goal, power-play assist and five shots during Friday's 4-2 win over Florida.
The 23-year-old center now has four goals and six assists during a six-game point streak, which includes four multi-point showings. The heater has Monahan on pace to both flirt with a point-per-game campaign and post career-best offensive numbers across the board.
Monahan recorded a goal, an assist, two shots and a plus-2 rating during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Minnesota.
The top-line pivot has notched three goals and four assists during his active four-game point streak and is now up to 39 points -- 20 tallies -- through 42 contests for the campaign. Monahan is currently scoring at a career-best pace, and it certainly helps that he has long-standing chemistry with star winger Johnny Gaudreau. While fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised if Monahan cools off slightly, he projects to remain a solid asset in all settings. He's just entering his offensive prime, after all.
Monahan produced a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Kings.
Monahan capped a four-goal middle frame for the hosts with his 19th of the season. He's picked things back up with consecutive multi-point outings after going nine games without a goal.

Monahan hadn't done much of anything since a trip to Montreal on Dec. 7; this assist snapped a five-game scoreless streak for the center. He's had a consistent year so far, and the scoreless skid is likely to be just a bump in the road rather than a serious issue.
