Hartley encouraged by play of Flames youngsters Monahan, Knight

Things may not be shaping up for a great year in Calgary, but coach Bob Hartley has seen a couple players pique his interest so far in training camp.

2013 first-round pick Sean Monahan and summer acquisition Corban Knight have done well early on and Hartley says he’s interested to see what they can do as Heather Robinson of Sportsnet reports.

“All our young kids play well, they’re all good kids, they all respect the game and that’s important. It’s the feather in the cap to the front office, they’ve drafted some good kids and we’re going to need them through the season whether it’s injuries or whatever it is, and I’ve been impressed with the way they carry themselves.”

GM Jay Feaster doesn’t get many kudos these days, but here we are. Drafting Monahan sixth overall and acquiring Knight from the Panthers gives them a couple of very young and hopeful players.

With the state the current Flames roster is in, both players might stick with the team all season.
