He isn’t on Canada’s world under-18 team for the tournament in Sochi, Russia, next week because he has a late 1994 birthday and it’s only for players born in ’95, ’96 or ’97. But Monahan gets a rave review from Kevin Prendergast, Hockey Canada’s chief scout, who put this team together.

“He’s a kid who can do just about anything. He can play the power play, kill penalties, play on the wing, on the top line, on your fourth line. Very versatile. For him to have 78 points on that Ottawa team was unbelievable. That was a bad team,” said Prendergast, who thinks Monahan could actually be ready for the NHL next season because of his size.
Geez, just spotted this. If Prendergast raves about him, count me in the anti-Monahan group.

6'2 and referenced as a "big center", best player on a terrible team, Prendergast throwing his talent evaluating abilities into the mix - I'm getting horrific flashbacks of Pouliot here
