2020 NHL Draft prospect profile: Luke Evangelista is a coach’s dream

When looking at the playoff run of the Montreal Canadiens, their playing style was easily defined. They want to relentlessly attack their opponents, eventually grinding them down and scoring when the opportunity arises from the opposing team’s mistakes.

A player in this year’s NHL Draft who fits that mould is one Luke Evangelista of the London Knights. We’ve previously profiled his teammate, Antonio Stranges, but Evangelista could not be a more opposite type of player.

A true 200-foot winger, Evangelista brings high-end defensive awareness and great hockey IQ that he can translate into the offensive attack as well.
