Report: Flames centre Sean Monahan done for the season

Eric Francis joins Hockey Central at Noon to discuss what derailed the Calgary Flames late in the season.

Calgary Flames centre Sean Monahan will not play again this season, according to a Postmedia report.

Flames coach Glen Gulutzan told reporters Friday that Monahan had been playing through two “significant injuries.”

“He’s been injected in two places for the last three weeks, just to get him through the games,” Gulutzan said. “He hasn’t been practising.”

The exact injuries were not disclosed, but the report indicated that surgery would be required to address one.

“It’s crazy that he’s able to play at the level he is with what he’s dealing with,” said Flames teammate Curtis Lazar.

Monahan has 31 goals and 64 points in 74 games this season. The decision to shut down the 23-year-old down was made easier because the Flames have fallen out of playoff contention.
