Eden Hall is pleased to select a physical beast of a defenseman:

Jack Evans, D



-1 of only 5 MLD-eligible defenseman with a top 5 finish in Norris voting, and his 752 career games (when seasons were 70 games long) are the most of any of the five.

- 80 points and 989 PIMs in 752 career NHL games makes it obvious what type of player he was.

Longevity:

- Durability: In the final 8 seasons of his career (1955-56 to 1962-63), Evans only missed 5 total games.

- 12th in Norris voting in 1960-61
- 5th in Norris voting in 1961-62

- Stanley Cup winner in 1961
