Evans could return for Canadiens during Stanley Cup Semifinals
Jake Evans could be available to the Montreal Canadiens at some point during the Stanley Cup Semifinals against the Vegas Golden Knights, with Game 1 at Vegas on Monday (9 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS).
The forward sustained a concussion when he was checked by Winnipeg Jets center Mark Scheifele in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Second Round on June 2. Canadiens coach Dominique Ducharme said Saturday that Evans has increased the intensity of his workouts in the gym and on ice the past few days, but that Montreal will err on the side of caution when it comes to his health.
