The Winnipeg Jets' veteran Sean Monahan addressed the rumors involving his return to the Montreal Canadiens in a recent interview.

Monahan was traded from the Canadiens to the Jets a few weeks before this season's trade deadline in return of a first round pick and a conditional third round pick, which the Habs won't get because the Jets lost in the first round of the playoffs.


The veteran had a great end of the season with the Jets, tallying 24 points in 34 games since his move to Winnipeg. Unfortunately, he couldn't keep the same level in the playoffs. On the ice, it looked like it was all going too fast for him. In the five games against the Colorado Avalanche, he only managed to score one assist.


At 29 years old, Monahan is set to become a free agent on July 1st and he'll look for a new contract in the NHL.

In an interview, he talked about what he wants to do when he becomes a free agent and how he liked playing with the Jets. He revealed that he wants to be on a winner team who'll compete for the Stanley Cup and that he considers the Jets to be such a team:

"Sean Monahan was asked what his priorities will be as a UFA. He wants to be on a winner with a chance to compete. He's enjoyed his time here and sees Winnipeg as a team that can compete."


This pretty much sums it up for Monahan's potential return in Montreal. The Habs likely won't be a top team as soon as next season, therefore he'll likely seek to join another market, or even stay in Winnipeg.

Do you think Monahan will remain with the Winnipeg Jets after his current contract?
