May 2020 – Luke Evangelista has been on the rise since the beginning of the season and his meat and potatoes game is what got him there. He doesn’t possess an overwhelming skillset in any sense but he has good hands and his shot is above average. What makes him so effective is his high-end motor and ability to play in the corners and around the net. He scores in bunches at times and most of his production doesn’t make the highlight reel. His skating will need work in terms of being able to pull away and generate a bit more explosion from his lower body. Despite having a willingness to engage in the tough areas of the offensive zone, Evangelista is a bit lanky still and if he wants to continue to play the game that makes him productive, he will need to bulk up a bit. He may be a bit of a slow burn as a prospect but there could be an effective top-nine forward at the NHL level if given the time to develop and get stronger. Tony Ferrari
