Sean Monahan Signs ELC With Flames

USA TODAY Sports

As the Flames continue to whittle down their list of players in need of a new contract ahead of the 2013-14 season, the team announced today that they have come to terms with their sixth overall pick in last month's draft, Sean Monahan.

Monahan led the last-place Ottawa 67s this past season with 31 goals and 78 points in 58 games, tying his production for the same team from 2011-12. His age, physical maturity and hockey sense have many people convinced that he will push hard for a roster spot with the Flames next season, not to mention the forward himself has said that he believes himself to be NHL ready on multiple occasions.

Flames GM Jay Feaster said he was impressed with Monahan at the team's recent development camp, and that the 67s co-captain will be tested again at the rookie tournament in Penticton prior to pre-season action.

Monahan will earn a base salary of $832,500 per year with an average annual value of $1,775,000M including performance bonuses over the course of his three-year entry-level deal.

Meanwhile, Brodie Watch 2013 resumes in the Saddlesphere.
