Canadiens' Jake Evans: Bumps to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was designated for the taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly.

Joel Armia is still getting his conditioning up to par after a stint in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, so Evans should be back in the lineup for Monday's game versus the Maple Leafs. He skated on a line with Nick Suzuki and Tyler Toffoli on Sunday. Evans has recorded seven points through 35 games this season.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Back on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was promoted to the active roster prior to Saturday's game versus the Jets, per CBS Sports.

Evans played in a fourth-line role during the 5-0 loss to the Jets. He also fought with Josh Morrissey in the third period. The 24-year-old Evans may occasionally be involved in paper moves, but he's fairly securely in the lineup on a near-everyday basis.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Bounced to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was reassigned to the taxi squad Friday, per CapFriendly.

Evans has two goals and seven points through 34 games this season. He'll likely be back on the active roster for Saturday's matchup with the Jets.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday, according to CapFriendly.

Evans had appeared in all but two games with Montreal prior to watching Monday's contest against Edmonton as a healthy scratch. The 24-year-old has seven points and a plus-5 rating through 32 games this season.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Sets up two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans had two assists, including one while shorthanded, along with four shots and two hits in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Senators.

The two assists give Evans seven points in 31 games. He's trying to make it difficult for head coach Dominique Ducharme to replace him in the lineup when Eric Staal (COVID-19 protocols) is ready to join the Canadiens on Monday.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Could be bumped by Staal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans is expected to lose his roster spot when Eric Staal (quarantine) is ready to play for Montreal, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Staal, who was acquired from Buffalo, will be eligible to play for his new team Monday at home against Edmonton. If Staal is ready to go against the Oilers, Evans will have two more games as the fourth-line center -- Thursday on the road against Ottawa and Saturday at home against the Senators.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Shifts to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

Evans will take the ice on the fourth line for Tuesday's game versus the Oilers. The 24-year-old has produced five points and 54 hits through 29 games.

March 28, 2021 09:16 PM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was reassigned to the taxi squad Sunday, per CapFriendly.

This is likely a paper move as Evans has skated in 29 games with Montreal this season. Expect the 24-year-old to be recalled for Tuesday's game against the Oilers.

March 25, 2021 10:24 PM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Bumps up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was promoted to the active roster Thursday, per CapFriendly.

The Canadiens aren't scheduled to play until Tuesday versus the Senators, so this is just a paper move for Evans. He'll likely be in the lineup for that contest, but he may shuffle to and from the taxi squad before the Canadiens' schedule resumes.

March 24, 2021 09:48 PM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Heads to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was designated for the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

This is just a paper move, as the Canadiens won't play until March 30 at the earliest due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. The 24-year-old has accrued five points and 54 hits through 29 games this year.

March 11, 2021 02:25 AM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Manages assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans produced an assist, three hits and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

Evans' line with Corey Perry and Paul Byron was the only one that interim head coach Dominique Ducharme didn't change going into Wednesday's game. The trio combined on Perry's tally in the second period, which stood as the game-winner. The 24-year-old Evans is up to five points, 49 hits and a plus-3 rating through 24 outings in a fourth-line role.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans returned to game action and had two hits in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Winnipeg.

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.

February 26, 2021 05:36 PM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Made healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was a healthy scratch for Thursday's 6-3 loss to Winnipeg.

Evans was replaced at center on the reconfigured fourth line by Paul Byron, who skated with Joel Armia and Artturi Lehkonen. This was the first game under interim head coach Dominique Ducharme, who replaced Claude Julien on Wednesday.

February 24, 2021 06:48 AM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Logs assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans had an assist, one shot on net, three hits and one blocked shot in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to Ottawa.

Evans' fourth line helped produce the Canadiens' first score late in the first period when he and Corey Perry set up Shea Weber's first of two goals. That put Montreal back in the game at 2-1. He also won 63 percent of his draws in what was a workmanlike effort from the 24-year-old center. The Toronto native now has two goals and one assist through 18 games. And after a slow start, Evans has come on at the dot. He's won 58.3 percent of his faceoffs over the last nine games, upping his season winning percentage to an above-water 51.3.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Ascends to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was promoted to the active roster ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Senators, per CapFriendly.

Evans has played in all 17 games this season, providing two goals and 31 hits. He's expected to play Tuesday, and he'll likely work in a bottom-six role with some penalty-kill work as well.

February 23, 2021 01:32 AM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Down to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was demoted to the taxi squad Monday, CBS Sports reports.

Evans has two goals and 31 hits through 17 games this season. This is almost certainly a paper move by Montreal, as the 24-year-old forward is expected to be recalled before Tuesday's game against the Senators.

February 10, 2021 02:56 PM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Back on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was promoted to the Canadiens' active roster Wednesday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Evans was sent to the taxi squad as a money-saving measure Tuesday, but he's expected to skate on Montreal's fourth line during Wednesday's matchup with Toronto. He's potted two goals through 12 games this campaign.

February 9, 2021 08:08 PM
Canadiens' Jake Evans: Sent to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was moved to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CBS Sports.

Evans has been a mainstay in the Canadiens' lineup all year but has recorded just two points -- both goals -- in 12 games. His 16 PIM and 22 hits could help in a bargain-basement DFS flier scenario, but he's probably not fantasy relevant beyond that.

Canadiens' Jake Evans: Contributes in rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Canucks.

Evans scored just nine seconds after Josh Anderson in the second period, as part of a three-goal rally in 1:34 to solidify the Canadiens' lead. It was Evans' second tally and point of the season. The 24-year-old has added seven shots on net and eight hits through five contests in a fourth-line role.
