Organizational Comments: Red Wings Assistant GM Jim Nill:
What GRC says: 2012-13 A leader on and off the ice, Evans did a great job as a stay at home blueliner, playing airtight defense with a lot of snarl. He was a calming influence on the younger players and would drop the gloves to defend them. A feared fighter, Evans was smart also, as he rarely went to the box alone, something that could not be said of the team's enforcers in the past (Exelby anyone?). He saved his best for the playoffs where he notched his first two goals of the year including the cup-clinching goal against Syracuse. He recently signed a one-year contact to return for next season.
Fall 2012 Evans is a crease clearing Physical rearguard who will make life miserable in his own end for opposing forwards. He is a team leader, a punishing hitter and a voice of experience for the young players.
