Sean Monahan will be cheering Team Canada on at this year's World Junior Hockey Championship, not playing in the event.

One day after Team Canada's selection camp roster was released, the Calgary Flames informed Hockey Canada that Monahan will not be released to join the team for the tournament.

The team released a statement on Tuesday to explain their decsion.

"We have spent a great deal of time discussing and debating the pros and cons of the situation in the context of what is best for Sean's continued professional development as a hockey player, as well as what is in the best interests of our team, our fans, and our organization. We have concluded that in light of the prominent role Sean has played on our team to date, and the role we project he will continue to play once he returns from his injury, that Sean will remain with our hockey club."

The 19-year-old Monahan has impressed the Flames organization with his play in his rookie year.

In 24 games, the Ottawa 67's product has nine goals and six assists for 15 points, to sit second on the team in scoring.

The Brampton, Ontario native was drafted sixth overall by the Flames last summer.
