Right-winger Hartland Monahan played over 300 NHL games for six different clubs in the 1970s and '80s. He was a decent goal scorer who moved the puck well on the power play and could stay with his check.
The Montreal native was chosen 43rd overall by the California Golden Seals in 1971 after a fine amateur career with the Junior Canadiens. He spent most of his first three pro seasons in the minors and only made into one NHL for the Seals. Prior to the 1974-75 season, Monahan was traded to the New York Rangers for Brian Lavender. He played six games for New York but saw most of his game action with the WHL's Salt Lake Golden Eagles.
Monahan received a chance to play on a regular basis after the Washington Capitals in the 1975 Intra-League Draft claimed him. He formed a solid line with Guy Charron and Garnet Bailey and notched his only 20-goal season in 1976-77. He split the 1977-78 season between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Los Angeles Kings before the St. Louis Blues acquired him. Monahan retired in 1980-81 after playing two years with the Blues.
