Calgary Flames forward Sean Monahan won't play in his team's four remaining regular-season games as he's scheduled to undergo hip surgery next week, the team announced. He's expected to be ready for full participation at training camp.

The Flames were officially eliminated from playoff contention earlier this week. The team's final four games of the season are all against the Vancouver Canucks.

It's unclear how long Monahan has been playing through the ailment. He recorded 10 goals and 18 assists in 50 games this season. This would equal a 46-point pace in an 82-game campaign, which would be the lowest total of his career since his rookie season.

The 26-year-old has already undergone a number of procedures throughout his career, including wrist, groin, and two hernia surgeries in 2018. He also had wrist surgery in 2017.
