Hartland Monahan on ice

Hartland Monahan, a forward who played 334 games for six NHL teams and was the son-in-law of Hockey Hall of Famer Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion, died Saturday. He was 72.

Selected by the California Golden Seals in the fourth round (No. 43) of the 1971 NHL Draft, Monahan had 141 points (61 goals, 80 assists) for the Golden Seals, New York Rangers, Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues from 1973-81.

His best season was in 1976-77, when he had an NHL career-high 50 points (23 goals, 27 assists) in 79 games with the Capitals.

His son, Shane Monahan, played two seasons for the Seattle Mariners (1998, 1999). The Montreal native moved to suburban Atlanta after retiring from hockey and was a manager for the United Parcel Service. An arena in his hometown of Laval, Quebec, was named in his honor in 2014.
