Plot twist: an imminent trade for Jake Evans? Here's what Kent Hughes would receive in return
BY DAVID ST-JEAN JULY 24, 2023 (7:50 PM)
Some surprise players may not make the roster of the CH, especially after the acquisition of Alex Newhook and the re-signing of Sean Monahan, two center players.
There's also a prospect like Owen Beck who could surprise and secure a regular spot. We're talking about another center player here.
This situation puts Jake Evans in a tough spot.
With limited offensive usage and declining statistics, he could be traded to make room for new talents like Beck, especially if he doesn't impress at the upcoming camp.
This adds to the list of stories to watch in the coming months, but Jake Evans could indeed be traded, likely for a prospect or a draft pick.
The logic would suggest he could fetch a 3rd-round pick, or possibly a 2nd-round pick if Kent Hughes can sweeten the deal.
After all, he's already a young established NHL player of NHL caliber.
Evans, 27, is a reliable right-handed center who recorded 19 points in 54 games last season. He is earning only $1.7 million per season until 2025.
