Via the NHL - let's hope we see this about, oh, 750 more times?

I’m not sure how much to write about Sean Monahan because we all watched him the same amount last year. I, along with a couple of other mysterious figures at FlamesNation, have had the same sort of idea about Monahan since day one: it was a mistake to keep him at the NHL level this year but holy crap this kid is real good at hockey!

Last year’s sixth overall pick is our number one prospect on this year’s edition of the Flames Fifteen.

It's almost time!

The 2014 NHL Draft goes Friday and Saturday from scenic Philadelphia, PA. The Calgary Flames own five picks in the first three rounds. To edify my own curiosity, I went ahead and made a fancy table of every Flames pick in the first three rounds since 2001 - the year Tod Button became head scout and began running the draft board. Each player is listed in overall order, and listed with the number of pro games they've played split into North America's three major leagues (the NHL, the AHL and the ECHL).

Table after the jump!
