CALGARY - Put a microphone or tape recorder in front of Sean Monahan's face and he won't be confused with Richard Sherman.

Considerably less bombast.

But boring?

Those around the Calgary Flames rookie forward can argue that description.

“It's just a face for you guys,” stated Jiri Hudler, who opened his home to the club's young star for a while this season. “In the room, he's fun to be around.

“Sometimes he's shy, but as soon as you get to know him more, he's pretty funny. At least he tries to be.”

The public persona, though, is the Flames may have Captain Serious 2.0 in their midst with the freshman who leads the team with 14 goals, the third-highest total among NHL rookies.
