  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Runs streak to three games

    Evans gathered two assists, two shots on net, two hits and one blocked shot over 16:49 of ice time in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Senators.

    Evans jumped on a loose puck, beating slow-to-react Ottawa defenders to set up Rem Pitlick's first-period goal. Later, he hit Joel Edmundson perfectly in stride for the Canadiens' third goal. Evans extended his point streak to three games, during which he has two goals and two assists. The middle-six forward has 12 goals, 27 points, 118 shots, 87 hits and 20 PIM over 69 contests. A three-year deal signed prior to the season means Evans is expected to return in a similar role in 2022-23, but the Canadiens also figure to remodel the roster during the offseason.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Returning to action Thursday

    Evans (undisclosed) will be in the lineup against the Flyers on Thursday.

    Evans is back after missing just one game due to his undisclosed problem. The 25-year-old winger set career bests this past season in games played (67), goals (11) and assists (13). Even with his return to action, Evans will be hard-pressed to break into the top six.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Ruled out Tuesday

    Evans is dealing with an undisclosed injury and won't play against Minnesota on Tuesday, John Lu of reports.

    Evans has put together a decent campaign with career bests in goals (11), assists (13) and games played (67). While the 25-year-old Toronto native is unlikely to ever be a 40-point producer for the Habs, he should be capable of offering some fantasy value in a middle-six role.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Reaches double digits

    Evans scored a goal on three shots and had one hit in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Devils.

    Evans patiently waited at the point while mates dislodged the puck from the corner. Corey Schueneman fed the forward who gripped-and-ripped a slapshot over Andrew Hammond's left shoulder for the Canadiens' second goal and his 10th of the season. Evans stopped a six-game goal drought with the tally and now has points in two straight. The 25-year-old center has 23 points, 110 shots, 82 hits, 33 blocked shots and 20 PIM while averaging 15:39 of ice time over 62 games.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Good to go Thursday

    Evans (upper body) will play Thursday's game in Carolina.

    Evans departed Tuesday's game against Florida with an injury, but it's thankfully not serious enough for the 25-year-old to miss further action. Evans' nine goals, 21 points, 101 shots, 15:35 of ice time and 33 blocked shots are all personal bests for the third-year NHLer.

    Evans (upper body) left Tuesday's game versus the Panthers in the third period but avoided serious injury, Eric Engels of reports.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Scores on tip-in

    Evans scored a goal on two shots and had one hit over 15:02 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

    Evans positioned himself in front of Florida goalie Spencer Knight, and it was the right spot to tip in Alexander Romanov's blast from the point to even the score at two goals apiece early in the second period. It was the second goal in three games for Evans, who has bounced between the second and third lines of late. He was on the second unit Thursday, as Montreal had to cover for an unavailable Jonathan Drouin (not injury related).

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Plucks apple in return

    Evans (upper body) posted an assist and went plus-2 in 14:24 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.

    Evans only missed one game with the injury, and he slotted back into a third-line role. He didn't have as much success as linemates Artturi Lehkonen and Rem Pitlick, who each had three points, but Evans has been steady with a goal and three assists in his last five outings. The 25-year-old is up to 17 points, 88 shots on net, 69 hits and a minus-11 rating in a career-high 48 games this season.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Won't play Saturday

    Evans (upper body) won't play Saturday versus the Oilers.

    Evans left Thursday's game against the Flames in the second period, and the injury is severe enough to cost him at least one contest.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Departs Thursday's contest

    Evans (upper body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Flames.

    Evans went to the locker room twice during the second period, and he's apparently hurt severely enough to be held out of the rest of the contest. The 25-year-old can be considered day-to-day going forward. If he can't play Saturday versus the Oilers, Cedric Paquette or Mathieu Perreault would likely draw into the lineup in a bottom-six role.
