Monahan is undecided about representing Canada at the World Championship in Slovakia, Kristen Anderson of The Calgary Sun reports.
Monahan said he had no injuries at the end of the regular season or during the Flames' short playoff run, but general manager Brad Treliving said he was playing through a crack in his thumb, Kristen Anderson of The Calgary Sun reports. Monahan has played at the Worlds once before, registering two assists in seven contests in 2014. After posting 34 goals and 82 points in the regular season, he would be a major addition to Team Canada should he accept the invitation.
Monahan had an assist and three shots in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 3.
Monahan has two points and eight shots in three games in the series. His top line with Johnny Gaudreau and Elias Lindholm has not performed at the same level as they did in the regular season, a major factor contributing to the Flames being behind 2-1 in the series.
Monahan scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche in Game 2 of their first-round series.
Monahan has five shots in two postseason appearances so far to go with the tally, after registering 82 points over 78 games in the regular season in a career year. Monahan may have more difficulty getting favorable matchups in Games 3 and 4 as the Flames will not have the last change in Denver.
Monahan (illness) was among the line rushes at practice Tuesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan was withheld from the regular-season finale due to an illness, but it appears he will be back in the fold for the start of the postseason. The star pivot closed out the year strong with six points in his final three games and will look to build on that Thursday when the Avs visit Calgary for Game 1.
Monahan (illness) will sit out of Tuesday's game versus the Oilers, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan sat out of the Flames' last game for rest purposes, but now he's dealing with a sickness. This game has no bearing on the Flames' position in the playoffs. Monahan has plenty of time to shake this illness and be ready for Game 1 of the playoffs against either the Avalanche or the Stars.
Monahan (illness) will be a game-time decision versus the Oilers on Saturday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan didn't practice Saturday morning, but Flames coach Bill Peters seems reluctant to render him a scratch at this point in time. Still, with 14 games still to commence on the regular-season-finale docket, owners are strongly advised to line up alternatives early on in order to beat the lineup lock(s) in DFS settings. In other words, this is a Flames player you really don't want to get burned by if he's ultimately scratched since his lofty fantasy profile otherwise makes him a top-dollar option in most formats.
Monahan (illness) was not at practice Saturday and will likely miss the game against the Oilers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
With Monahan out, Elias Lindholm shifts to center and James Neal will feature on the top line in the regular-season finale. Monahan should be good to go for Game 1 of the playoffs after missing the last two games of the season.
Monahan (illness) left Friday's practice early, making him questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Oilers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan was rested for Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Ducks. Coach Bill Peters indicated that players who are able to go will play Saturday, but those that have a knock or are ill will be held out. There will likely be another update on Monahan's condition prior to Saturday's contest.
Monahan (rest) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Ducks, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
The Flames have already clinched the No. 1 seed in the West, so it's a perfect time for them to give their studs some extra rest. At this point it isn't clear if Monahan will dress for Calgary's season finale Saturday against the Oilers.
Monahan netted his 34th goal of the year in a 5-3 win over the Sharks on Sunday.
Monahan added four shots, two PIM and two blocked shots for a solid all-around game. The pivot has 81 points in 77 games this season, but he's been streakier than usual in March, a month in which he had two separate four-point games but also failed to record a point in seven of his 13 outings.
Monahan posted two goals and two assists -- including one helper on the power play -- in a 6-1 victory against the Ducks on Friday.
The 24-year-old also had four points March 12, and that was actually the last time he posted a point before Friday. This performance broke a five-game pointless streak. Five consecutive pointless games mark his longest stretch of the season without a point, as Monahan has been utterly spectacular this season. He has 33 goals and 80 points in 76 games this season.
Monahan (illness) skated 20:23 and registered four shots on goal in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Senators.
It's a positive sign that Monahan skated 1:08 more than his season average entering the night, indicating he's back at full strength. He wasn't needed on offense, as the fourth line of Derek Ryan, Andrew Mangiapane and Garnet Hathaway combined for six points to lead the way Thursday.
Monahan (illness) will slot back into the lineup Thursday versus the Senators, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan missed two games with the illness, but will retake the top-line center role alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Elias Lindholm. He's tallied 76 points (31 goals, 45 assists) in 71 appearances this season, so fantasy owners and Flames fans alike will welcome his return.
Flames coach Bill Peters is confident Monahan (illness) will return to action Thursday against the Senators, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan's malady has already cost him two games, but the Flames are guaranteed a playoff spot and there's plenty of reason for the top-line pivot to be rested when he's less than 100 percent. Expect an official update on Monahan to surface ahead of Thursday's contest.
Monahan (illness) will not suit up for Tuesday's contest against Columbus, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan had appeared in all 71 games for Calgary this season prior to missing Saturday's game in Winnipeg. The Ontario native is having a career year, tying his career-high 31-goal mark and setting a new career best with 76 points.
Although he didn't participate in morning skate, Monahan (illness) is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan was on the ice at morning skate, but he didn't participate in line rushes, which generally signifies who will play in the evening's contest. The star forward is battling an illness, so the team will check in with him later in the day before a decision on his status is made, though we may not find out until pregame warmups. Monahan has already matched his career-high mark for goals in a season (31) and owns a career-best 45 helpers, so anything the rest of the way comes as icing on the fantasy breakout cake.
Monahan (illness) participated in the morning skate Tuesday, but did not take line rushes, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
This indicates Monahan will likely miss Tuesday night's matchup with the Blue Jackets. The Flames clinched their playoff spot while idle Sunday, so they can afford to have a little patience with their top center. Monahan's next chance to return comes Thursday versus the Senators.
Monahan (illness) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's home game against Columbus, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Monahan missed Saturday's game against Winnipeg due to the illness, but could play Tuesday. The centerman has been sensational this season, racking up 76 points in 71 games. If the 24-year-old can't go, the Flames called up Curtis Lazar on Monday and he could enter the lineup.
Monahan (illness) won't be in Winnipeg for Saturday's game against the Jets, Erik Francis of Sportsnet reports.
Monahan left Friday's game against the Rangers due to the illness, and it's rather discouraging that he didn't even travel to Winnipeg for this clash against the Jets. First-year Flame Derek Ryan figures to assume his top-line center spot for the time being, but there's no such thing as a lateral replacement for Monahan, who has generated 31 goals and a career-high 45 assists through 71 games this season.
Monahan exited Friday's 5-1 win over the Rangers with an illness, Danny Austin of Postmedia reports.
While Monahan was limited to 8:58 of ice time, the Flames treated the home crowd to the big win behind Matthew Tkachuk's five-point night and reascended to first place within the Pacific Division. Still, given Monahan's lofty profile -- he's collected 31 goals, 45 assists and 22 power-play points through 71 games -- we can expect a rather quick turnaround in terms of the star pivot being reevaluated. Besides, Calgary is bound for Winnipeg for Saturday's game to complete the back-to-back set.
