Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "If Evan can fix his skating and be more consistent defensively, Evan could be selected very high in the 2018 NHL Draft. Dating back to his OHL draft year Evan has been a very polarizing prospect for scouts, and he likely will again going into next year's draft if he can't improve these areas enough." (Ryan Yessie, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "A big offensive defenseman. His best asset is his shot. He has a cannon from the point, which is accurate and often finds the net. ... Evan likes to rush the puck up ice. He generates good speed over long distance, but his first few steps are well below average and while he covers ground, it takes him a little while to get his feet going. ... His puck-moving abilities are decent, but would benefit from landing accurate passes on a more frequent basis." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Super intelligent and fundamentally perfect." (Red Line Report)
