Evans signed a two-year extension with the Canadiens on Wednesday. The first year of the contract is a two-way deal, whereas the second year of the extension is a one-way deal. Evans spent the majority of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, notching 14 goals and 38 points in 51 contests, but he also appeared in 13 games with the big club, picking up three points over that span. The 24-year-old Notre Dame product will likely continue to bounce between the AHL and NHL in 2020-21, but he could stick with the Canadiens full time the following season.
Evans (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Friday's Game 2 against the Flyers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Evans was decent in limited action during the regular season, picking up three points in 13 games with the big club. The 24-year-old rookie will skate on Montreal's fourth line during Friday's contest.
Evans (undisclosed) was on the ice for warmups ahead of Friday's Game 2 clash with Philadelphia, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports, though he won't be getting into the lineup. Considering Evans was a fringe player to begin with, his injury absence likely didn't improve his chances of seeing a lot of minutes during the playoffs. It appears Alex Belzile has beaten Evans out for a spot, though the two could certainly flip-flop the rest of the way.
Evans (undisclosed) isn't expected to play in Friday's Game 4 against Pittsburgh, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Evans was deemed doubtful for Friday's contest Thursday, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. The 24-year-old made his NHL postseason debut in Wednesday's Game 3, firing one shot on net in 5:40 of ice time before exiting with an undisclosed injury.
Evans (undisclosed) is considered doubtful for Friday's Game 4 against the Penguins, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports. Evans exited Wednesday's Game 3 after taking a huge hit from Pittsburgh's Brandon Tanev and didn't return. If the Penguins are able to force a Game 5, it will be held Saturday, so at this point Evans is looking iffy at best for the remainder of Montreal's qualifying round series.
