The 2013 first-round pick has played 656 games with the Flames, scoring 212 goals and notching 462 points over that time. Over the past two seasons, Monahan has struggled with injuries, requiring hip surgeries in both 2021 and 2022.

Throughout the 2021-22 season, Monahan played on the fourth line and produced eight goals and 23 points in 65 games — a diminished role for the former sixth-overall pick.

His most productive season for the Flames came in the 2018-19 season, when he scored 34 goals and tallied 82 points in 78 games making that the only season he eclipsed a point-per-game.

In 2016, Monahan signed a seven-year, $44.6 million contract with an AAV of $6.375 million. He is set to become a UFA at the end of the 2022-23 season.
