  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Signs one-year contract

    Monahan (groin) signed a one-year, $1.985 million contract extension with Montreal on Tuesday.

    Monahan appeared in only 25 games with the Canadiens during the 2022-23 season, but he was productive before foot and groin issues cut his campaign short, compiling six goals and 11 assists. The 28-year-old should be expected to open the 2023-24 season on Montreal's second line.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Returning to ice in May

    Monahan (groin) will begin skating in early May, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Monahan suffered the groin injury after playing with a broken foot. He said that compensating for the foot was the reason for the groin injury and subsequent surgery. Monahan also said that he intends to play in 2023-24. Monahan had six goals and 17 points in 25 injury-plagued games.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Opts for groin surgery

    Monahan has elected to have season-ending groin surgery, the Canadiens announced Monday.

    Monahan has been out of action on long-term injured reserve since Dec. 5 against Vancouver, so this latest announcement shouldn't come as a shock. Before getting hurt, the veteran center racked up 17 points in 25 contests and looked set to get back over the 50-point threshold for the first time since 2018-19. With roughly six months before Opening Night, Monahan should be ready for the start of next season, though the team hasn't announced a specific recovery timeline.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Not going on trip

    Monahan (lower body) will not travel with the Canadiens on their upcoming road trip, Eric Engels of reports.

    The lack of an update on Monahan suggests he won't be back until some time in mid-March at the earliest. The 28-year-old has been in practice at times over the last month, but he's not making enough progress to get back into games.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Will travel but still not ready

    Monahan (lower body) will travel with the Canadiens for the team's upcoming four-game road trip, but he's still not ready for game action, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Monahan will presumably continue to practice with the team during its four-game trip, but it sounds like the earliest he'll potentially be ready to return to the lineup will be Feb. 25 for a home matchup with Ottawa. The 28-year-old forward, who's picked up 17 points through 25 games this season, hasn't played since Dec. 5 versus Vancouver.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Practices Saturday

    Monahan (lower body) practiced in a non-contact jersey Saturday, Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic reports.

    Monahan is due to return from long-term injured reserve following the All-Star break in early February. With the news that Cole Caufield (shoulder) is done for the season, Monahan's rehab takes on added importance.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Moved to long-term injured reserve

    Monahan (lower body) was moved to long-term injured reserve Tuesday.

    Monahan has already missed the last 19 games, so his placement on long-term injured reserve shouldn't impact when he can be activated off IR. Still, the fact that the team made the move to shift him to LTIR doesn't bode well for him returning to action in the short term. With so many injuries, the Habs were forced to call up Rafael Harvey-Pinard and Rem Pitlick from the minors.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Takes next step in recovery

    Monahan (lower body) rejoined teammates at Friday's practice, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Monahan missed the last 14 games, and the team estimates another two weeks before he'll be ready to play. Despite the missed time, Monahan is fourth on the club with 17 points. He's also been Montreal's best man in the faceoff circle, so his absence has played a role in the club's recent slump. Monahan is in the final year of his contract and could be a trade chip for the rebuilding Canadiens, if he's able to show good health.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Skates Wednesday

    Monahan (lower body) skated for the first time Wednesday.

    Monahan has yet to be cleared to return to practice, so he likely will still be sidelined for a few more games before getting back into the lineup. Before getting hurt, the veteran center managed four goals and seven helpers in his previous 12 contests, including a trio of power-play points. Once given the green light, Monahan should get back to a top-six role and link up with the No. 1 power-play group.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Shifts to IR

    Monahan (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Monahan was given a 2-3 week timeline to return, so this move is simply to free up a roster spot should the Canadiens need one.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Facing multi-week absence

    Monahan will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks with a lower-body injury.

    This is a significant loss for Montreal and fantasy owners alike, as Monahan has played well this season, picking up six goals, 17 points and 55 shots on net while averaging 17:22 of ice time through 25 games. Rem Pitlick will likely be a regular in the Canadiens' lineup for the duration of Monahan's absence.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Won't play against Calgary

    Monahan (foot) won't be available to play versus the Flames on Monday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Monahan, who has sat out the past two games, won't get a chance to play against his former team Monday. He picked up two assists in a 2-1 victory over Calgary on Dec. 1. Monahan has contributed six goals, 17 points and 55 shots on net in 25 games this season.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Unable to play Saturday

    Monahan (foot) will not be in the lineup versus LA on Saturday, according to Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic.

    Monahan is not skating as he is still in a protective boot on his right foot. He already missed Tuesday's tilt in Seattle. He had been hot before his injury, with four goals and 11 points in his previous 12 games.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Unavailable Tuesday

    Monahan (lower body) will not play Tuesday in Seattle.

    Monahan was hurt Monday in Vancouver, and he'll be evaluated again upon the Canadiens' return home following their road trip. They don't play again until Saturday, so if Monahan's injury is a minor one, he may not need to miss more than one game. The Canadiens may opt for 11 forwards and seven defensemen in their lineup Tuesday.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Injured Monday

    Monahan (undisclosed) will not return to Monday's game against the Canucks.

    Monahan scored one goal on four shots through 10:15 of ice time before leaving the contest. He'll need to make a quick turnaround if he plans to suit up Tuesday against the Kraken. The veteran forward is up to 17 points through 25 games on the year.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Excels against Flames

    Monahan registered two assists in a 2-1 win against Calgary on Thursday.

    Monahan logged 20:08 of ice time in his first game against his former team. While his role diminished with the Flames to the point where he averaged 14:04 of ice time last season, he has a top-six spot and a place on the first power-play unit in Montreal. He's up to five goals and 16 points in 23 contests this season.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Two helpers in shootout win

    Monahan picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over Chicago.

    The 28-year-old center worked a give-and-go with Joel Edmundson for the afternoon's opening tally early in the first period, then had a hand in a Nick Suzuki goal with the man advantage in the second. Monahan has an active four-game point streak and has collected eight points (three goals, five helpers) over the last eight contests, and he appears to be inching closer to the form he flashed with the Flames in 2018-19, when he set a career high by racking up 82 points in 78 games.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Finishes off Blue Jackets

    Monahan scored an empty-net goal, had four shots on net and blocked two shots over 18:29 of ice time in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

    Monahan scored from his own zone to give him goals in consecutive games. The 28-year-old native of Ontario has points in three straight contests and six of the last seven. Two of Monahan's five markers this season have entered empty nets.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Earns tally in loss

    Monahan registered a goal on four shots in a 7-2 loss to the Sabres on Tuesday.

    Although the Habs didn't live up to expectations Tuesday, Monahan had a fairly productive night, scoring on a wrist shot at the 13:57 mark of the second period and also adding one hit and one block. In 19 games this season, the nine-year veteran now has four goals along with seven helpers.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Helps on game-tying goal

    Monahan picked up an assist and had three shots on goal over 19:28 of ice time in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Philadelphia.

    With goalie Jake Allen pulled, Monahan was part of scramble late in the third period as the Canadiens looked for an equalizer. He fed Cole Caufield, whose shot went wide, but Nick Suzuki retrieved the puck off the boards and gave Caufield a second chance for the game-tying goal with 1.9 seconds remaining. Monahan, who has four points over the last five games, has three goals, seven assists, 38 shots and 16 PIM this season.
