Sean Monahan, a Calgary Flames player, will still have to take a long break due to surgery to solve the hip problem. It is certain that the Flames will miss a player like this in the team, but they will have to manage without him and try to achieve their goals.
Flames general manager Brad Treliving is as disappointed as ever because they will miss such a player, but the problem has existed for a long time and they will have to fix it if they want the most from Monaghan. “He’s battled some things,” Flames GM said, as quoted by NHL.com.
“It’s unfortunate. The good news here is he’s got a lot of time to get this addressed. He had his other hip, his left hip, done last year (May 2021) and it feels great and he’s doing wonderful. This is now sort of the next challenge for him.
He’s got a lot of time to get it addressed before next year”.
Treliving on Sean Monahan
Treliving believes that this is the best solution for both the club and him and that it is the only option at the moment.
Sean Monahan will undergo surgery and is in the process of recovery, and we hope that he will return to the field as soon as possible. Monahan is one of the best players on his team, and he is very helpful with his skills and performances.
“But no question, a great deal of disappointment. We talked a lot yesterday. At the end of the day, it is what it is. When your body is telling you you can’t do it, you can’t do it. We’ll get it fixed and move forward,” Treliving added.
“Last year he had the same procedure and I think he was 4 1/2 months that he was gone,” Treliving said. "The one thing you know with Sean is he’s going to attack it hard and he’ll be back”.
