Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes gave an update on what happened with Sean Monahan this season and what’s to come.

After months of secrecy regarding the health of their veteran forward, Hughes shed some light on what exactly happened over the last two months and why the Habs decided to keep things under wraps.

“We wanted to keep things private out of respect to Seane and chose to communicate the information directly to the teams that were interested, rather than through the media,” said Hughes regarding the reason behind their tight-lipped approach with Monahan’s health.

When asked to describe the timeline of Sean Monahan‘s health, Hughes gave some more insight into what has kept Monahan out for the last three months.

“He re-injured himself during his rehab. It’s set him back a little bit, “said Hughes regarding what went wrong with money. “It’s hard to tell when he’ll come back, but it’s possible that he could return before the end of the season.”

However, Hughes quickly pointed out that Monahan’s current injury was not the same initial injury he had to his foot that saw him walking around in Calgary and Vancouver with a walking boot in early December.

“It wasn’t a foot injury; he injured something else,” confirmed Hughes. “We spoke with the doctors and they initially told him to stay off it for two weeks. His foot is healed, the bone takes about two months to heal.”

Hughes said it’s a very unfortunate situation for Monahan, as he was with him when talking to team doctors and attempting to figure out the next steps.

It’s no secret that injuries hurt the Montreal Canadiens’ ability to make moves at the NHL Trade Deadline, but Monahan’s was perhaps the most unfortunate, as the 28-year-old was an impact player for the Habs.
