The award is given annually to the player voted to best combine sportsmanship, gentlemanly conduct and ability.
In addition to Monahan, St. Louis' Ryan O'Reilly and Florida's Aleksander Barkov have been named finalists.
The winner will be announced at the 2019 NHL Awards presented by Bridgestone at the sports and entertainment complex, Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on June 19.
Monahan, a 24-year-old center, established NHL career highs with 34 goals, 48 assists, 82 points, 23 power-play points (12 goals, 11 assists) and 211 shots on goal. He was tied with Mikael Backlund first on the Flames in takeaways (78) and second in points per 60 minutes (3.31), third in goals per 60 minutes (1.37) and second in assists per 60 minutes (1.94).
