Found an article on him:

Evans a smart hockey player with offensive ability and an edge to his game, UMD coach Scott Sandelin said. Hes very competitive and by putting him in a lot of situations, the end result is a pretty good player.

Sandelin moved Oberg to his forehand side on power plays against Denver and the defenseman responded with a goal in a 4-2 victory. He had three points in a 6-5 home win over Western Michigan on Oct. 18.

As hes improved, the undrafted player has drawn the interest of NHL teams.

Hes a heads-up defenseman who makes crisp passes and can find a seam, see the lane and shoot the puck, said UMD assistant Brett Larson, a former Bulldog defenseman.
another quote on him:

Evan Oberg, who closed out his Canadian junior league playing days last April by being bestowed with the Top Defenseman Award at the prestigious Royal Bank Cup, has signed a national letter of intent to attend and play hockey for the University of Minnesota Duluth in 2007-08.

A 6-0, 180-pound native of Forestburg, Alberta, Oberg helped lead the Alberta Junior Hockey League playoff titleholder Camrose Kodiaks to the semifinal round of the Royal Bank Cup (Canada Junior A championships) while topping all Kodiak blueliners in post-season points with 14 in 16 games.
