Calgary Flames forward Sean Monahan will undergo season-ending surgery on his hip and will hit the long-term injured reserve list, the team announced Saturday.

This surgery is on the opposite hip of the one he had repaired last summer, according to Postmedia’s Wes Gilbertson.

The 27-year-old has had a slew of tough injuries over the years, undergoing a wrist, groin, and two hernia surgeries in 2018 and an additional wrist surgery in 2017.

“Most people out there couldn’t play through a third of what he has,” GM Brad Treliving said Saturday, according to Sportsnet’s Luke Fox.

Monahan has played a largely diminished role in Calgary this season, often skating on the team’s fourth line. He managed eight goals and 15 assists in 65 contests.
