The Canadiens have recalled Jake Evans from Laval (AHL).

With the Canadiens shipping Nick Cousins to the Golden Knights on Monday, Evans is back in the NHL after a brief return to the AHL. The 23-year-old has one goal in six games with the Canadiens but has really been strong in the AHL, leading Laval with 38 points (14G / 24A) in 51 games.
