According to TSN on Friday, the Montreal Canadiens traded Sean Monahan of Brampton, Ontario to the Winnipeg Jets for a first round draft pick in the 2024 National Hockey League Entry Draft, and a conditional third round draft pick in the 2027 NHL Entry Draft if the Jets win the Stanley Cup. If the Jets do win the Stanley Cup, it would be their first in franchise history.

The Jets are the third NHL team Monahan has played for. He previously played nine seasons with the Calgary Flames from 2013 to 2022, and the last two seasons with the Canadiens in 2022-23 and 2023-24.

In 49 games in 2023-24 with the Canadiens, Monahan had 13 goals and 22 assists for 35 points. He was a -10 with 10 penalty minutes, 16 power-play points, two shorthanded goals, three game-winning goals, 104 shots on goal, 399 faceoff wins, 24 blocked shots, 11 hits, 24 takeaways, and 24 giveaways.

Monahan has had a very good January. In nine games, he has had two goals and nine assists for 11 points. On January 25, Monahan had two goals and one assist for three points in a 4-3 Canadiens win over the New York Islanders.

The Jets are currently in third place in the Central Division with 65 points, behind the Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars. They have a record of 30 wins, 12 regulation losses, and five losses in extra time.
