2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.
