Evans suffered a concussion in Game 1 of Montreal’s second-round Stanley Cup playoff series after the Winnipeg striker. Mark Scheifele Evans charged when he scored on the empty jets net in the final minute of the game.
Scheifele was suspended four games for charging Evans, who was carried off the ice as a result of the hit. No timeline has been announced for Evans’ possible return to the ice.
The Canadiens completed a Jets sweep Monday night with a 3-2 overtime victory and will play the series winner between the Vegas Golden Knights and the Colorado Avalanche in the next round.
