24-Year-Old Left WingLW
Montreal Canadiens
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Evans got his first taste of NHL action in 2019-20, notching three points in 13 games. He also posted a solid 38 points in 51 contests with AHL Laval. The 24-year-old forward could make the Canadiens' Opening Night roster in 2020-21, as he's competing with Ryan Poehling for the fourth-line center job. A natural winger, Evans is on a two-way contract, which makes it more likely he ends up in the minors to start the truncated 56-game campaign, but a strong showing in training camp could earn Evans a regular job. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues shouldn't pay him much attention, but his scoring pace in the minors will make him worth a stash in dynasty formats. Read Past Outlooks

Returns to lineup
LWMontreal Canadiens
February 28, 2021
Evans returned to game action and had two hits in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Winnipeg.
ANALYSIS
Evans had been a healthy scratch for Thursday's meeting between the same two teams -- the first game under interim head coach Dominique Ducharme -- but returned to the ice Saturday with Josh Anderson nursing a lower-body injury.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Evans' first season as a professional was bookended by injuries. He underwent offseason hernia surgery last summer, suffered a concussion during training camp, and spent the final weeks of the campaign on the shelf due to a broken rib. Despite that, the 23-year-old was able to put together a highly respectable season, notching 13 goals and 32 assists in 67 games for AHL Laval. He opened on the Rocket's fourth line, but quickly earned a promotion to the top line. Eventually, he was trusted in all situations, skating on Laval's first power-play unit while also serving as a penalty killer. Evans will likely open the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, but could earn a call-up at some point during the season, so although he won't be worth a pick in this year's fantasy drafts, he may be worth a waiver claim if he's able to secure an extended stay with the big club.
Evans was a four-year star at the University of Notre Dame, who improved each year for the Irish. He captained Notre Dame during this year's Frozen Four, where they lost the title game to the University of Minnesota-Duluth. If he weren't selected by the Canadiens in the seventh round of the 2014 draft, Evans would have gone higher this year. He played mostly on the wing in college but is capable of handling center duties if needed. Look for the Habs to try him out at center in AHL Laval. He's viewed as a well-rounded player with no obvious deficiencies and lauded for his hockey IQ. The 22-year-old underwent surgery for a sports hernia in May and was given a 12-week prognosis for recovery.
