Based on his four-game sample in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, it's the last thing you would've expected Sean Monahan to announce Friday.
A bum wrist.
Monahan, who scored four goals (all power play markers) in their four-game sweep at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks, will undergo wrist surgery.
"I think it's pretty minimal surgery," said Monahan, who led the Flames with five points (four goals, one assist) in the playoffs, and became the first player in NHL history to score in four straight games in a series his team was swept when the Flames fell in four games to the Ducks.
"It's going to be quick here. I'm going to get it done and I'll be ready to train here soon.
"It's been a while. It's been off and on. Just kind of battle through it. I think this summer is the right time to do the surgery and I'm looking forward to it not bothering me any more."
