The Flames are back in pre-season action on Monday when they take on the Winnipeg Jets at the MTS Centre at 6:00 p.m. MT.

The game will be broadcast on TSN3. Sportsnet 960 The FAN will carry the radio broadcast.

Sean Monahan is slated to make his return to the lineup after missing Friday's 4-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes. The 22-year-old participated in both practices over the weekend and will play in Winnipeg as per head coach Glen Gulutzan.

The Flames will also have Matthew Tkachuk back in the lineup. The winger was sidelined during the first week of pre-season play due to a minor hip injury but began skating with the team late in the week.

Monday's game could be the last audition for some players on the bubble as the Flames intend on trimming their training camp roster down following the exhibition skate.

On Saturday, they assigned seven players to the Stockton Heat, placing the camp roster at 40. Gulutzan has indicated he would like a very small group, close to that of the opening roster, in the final two pre-season games.

"We do have some little nagging things here so we kept some extra guys here," Gulutzan said of the small number of cuts this weekend.

"After the Winnipeg game, we'll get down to that 15 (forwards) and eight (defencemen) number. But we've got a couple of nagging things that we want to make we sure we don't push."

Calgary currently has 26 forwards, 10 defencemen and four goaltenders on their camp roster.
