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.
Evans will make his NHL debut on Thursday.
Evans was a seventh-round pick in 2014 and has scored 12 goals with 22 assists (34 points) in 48 AHL games this season. With Ryan Poehling and Jordan Weal both sick, the 23-year-old will make his NHL debut on the third line with Max Domi and Ilya Kovalchuk.
