Sean Monahan earns 300th career NHL point

In the second period of the Calgary Flames’ game with the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night, one of their players hit a big career milestone. Sean Monahan’s goal to put the Flames on the board represented his 300th career National Hockey League point.

One of three Flames’ first round selections in the 2013 NHL Draft – selected prior to Morgan Klimchuk and Emile Poirier – Monahan made the leap directly from the Ontario Hockey League to the NHL in 2013-14. Since then he’s established himself as a reliable first line center and a consistent scorer.

Monahan’s 300th point came in his 411th NHL game. He has 147 goals and 153 points so far, and is just the 21st player in Flames franchise history to generate 300 points.
