The Calgary Flames have rewarded Sean Monahan for a tremendous first three NHL seasons, and firmly believe there are many more to come.

The 21-year-old signed a seven-year contract extension worth a reported $6.375 million per season on Friday, and general manager Brad Treliving says it’s money well committed.

“We look at this as securing Sean for the prime years of his career,” Treliving added.

Over three seasons since being drafted sixth overall by the Flames in 2013, Monahan has scored 80 goals and added 79 assists in 237 appearances, good for a points per game average of 0.67.

“This is where I wanted to be and a seven-year commitment is huge,” Monahan said at a press conference. “I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”

“Now we can get going and try to win a championship here.”
