PAIR OF WESTERN CONFERENCE TEAMS LINKED TO HABS FORWARD SEAN MONAHAN

DEC 6, 2022  (14H31)      COOPER GODIN
Montreal Canadiens forward Sean Monahan could be the most sought after player on their roster leading up to the National Hockey League's trade deadline on March 3rd.

While it's not a foregone conclusion that Monahan will be dealt by Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes, given the way he's been playing lately, there's a good chance the team could get a decent return for the pending unrestricted free agent.

According to Dany Dube of 98.5FM radio in Quebec, the Dallas Stars and Edmonton Oilers could have interest in Monahan and are two teams to watch if Kent Hughes makes the 28-year-old available for trade.

Dube also added that, if the Canadiens were to engage in trade talks with the Edmonton Oilers, they could ask Ken Holland about 2021 first round pick Xavier Bourgault, who's currently playing in the American Hockey League.

It seems unlikely that the Oilers will be willing to part with the L'Islet (Quebec) native, especially for a pending unrestricted free agent. Bourgault is off to a pretty good start in his professional career, putting up 11 points (seven goals, four assists) in 20 games for the Bakersfield Condors.

There's also a chance that Monahan stays with the Canadiens beyond the 2022-23 season. During Insider Trading on TSN on December 1st, Pierre LeBrun mentioned that the Canadiens management are having discussions on if they should keep Monahan and sign him to an extension.

The Brampton (Ontario) native has put up 17 points (six goals, 11 assists), 16 penalty minutes and is a minus-five in 26 games this season for the Canadiens.

Should the Montreal Canadiens sign Monahan to an extension or trade him ahead of March 3rd's deadline? Let us know what you think in the poll below!
