Evans is a solid two-way player with a strong character and is physically engaged in all three zones. His skating is good but needs better acceleration to be more of an offensive threat when carrying the puck at the pro level. His hockey IQ is very good, sees the ice well and makes good passing decisions but needs to use his quick accurate shot more often. The late round pick has the potential to become a bottom-six forward that can check top line offensive players and chip in occasionally with some offense.
Evans will spend the next four years at the NCAA level at the University of Notre Dame. His overall development should need the full time to help him reach his full potential but he is considered a long shot to make the NHL.
