Profiles & Press Clippings:
  • 2013-14 USA Hockey NTDP Profile/Stat Page
  • 2012-13 NAPHL Profile/Stat Page
  • Omaha AAA Lancers Commitment Press Release
  • In the Western College Hockey Blog's review of the 2012 NAHL Showcase, Chris Dilks had this to say: Christian Evers-D-Omaha Lancers U16-Already a huge kid, listed at 6'4", and clearly the top D on a team with a pretty strong defense. Very good hands and feet for a player of his size. Definitely a big time prospect.
  • NHL Entry Draft eligible in 2015.
  • He will play for the USA Hockey NTDP Under-17 Team.
  • In July, he participated in USA Hockey's Select 16 Development Camp, recording one assist in five games.
  • Played for the Omaha AAA U-16 Lancers of the North American Prospects Hockey League, recording 69 points (27G, 42A) in 70 games on his way to earning All-NAPHL U-16 1st Team honors.
  • Participated in USA Hockey's Select 15 Development camp, where he produced four points (2G, 2A) in five games in being named the fourth best defenseman at the camp by USHR: Christian Evers (#3 Grey, 2-2-4) 6-2/190 — We were told before we got here that the Waukee, Iowa native was in the same class as Hanifin and Werensky and were a little bit disappointed the first couple times we saw him. That said, we are glad we stuck around until the final day because he was great -- really showed us what he is capable of. Tall kid, smooth skater and passes the puck like a pro. Does not have the same offensive upside as the three d-men above him on this list, but has the ability to develop into a mean, shut-down type defenseman. Will play for the Omaha U16 team.
  •  Played for the NPI Leafs AAA '96s.
