The Calgary Flames have signed their 2013 first round pick (6th overall) center Sean Monahan to a three-year, entry level contract.
Monahan, 18, will earn an annual base salary of $832,500 at the NHL level, with a signing bonus of $92,500 each year, and an AHL salary of $70,000 per year.
"Getting Sean signed prior to Rookie Camp and Main Camp has always been our priority and we are very pleased to have him in the fold," said Flames GM Jay Feaster. "From our very first interaction with him, Sean has demonstrated a seriousness of purpose and a steadfast resolve to be the very best player he can be, and his character and work ethic have continued to shine through in his preparation this summer.
"Not only is Sean a very good hockey player, but he is a great person as well. He had a solid showing at our recent Development Camp, and as we shared with him afterward, we look forward to watching him play at our Rookie Tournament in Penticton and then attempt to compete for a spot at Main Camp in Calgary."
Monahan, a native of Brampton, Ontario, posted back-to-back 78 point seasons with the Ottawa 67's of the OHL, heading into last month's draft.
