Brennan Evans (born January 6, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Playing career[edit]

Evans spent four seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Seattle Thunderbirds and Kootenay Ice, winning the Memorial Cup with the Ice in 2002. The Calgary Flames signed Evans on September 30, 2003 as an undrafted free-agent. Since turning pro in 2003, Evans has spent most of his career in the American Hockey League, however he was called up to the Flames on an emergency basis during the 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs due to several injuries to Flames defencemen. He appeared in two games during the Flames series against the Detroit Red Wings. Between 2003 and 2008, Evans has played for the Lowell Lock Monsters, Binghamton Senators, and the Worcester Sharks in the AHL.

On July 11, 2008, Evans signed a two-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks.[1] In the 2008–09 season, after attending the Ducks training camp, Evans was then assigned to AHL affiliate, the Iowa Chops, posting 15 points in 75 games for the season. Following the suspension of Iowa at seasons end, Evans was loaned from the Ducks to the Toronto Marlies, affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, for the entire 2009–10 campaign leading the Marlies with 15 fights for 199 penalty minutes in 79 games.

On July 11, 2010, Evan left the Ducks organization and signed a two-year deal with the St. Louis Blues. Spending the entire 2010-2011 season with the Blues AHL affiliate, Evans was limited to only 66 games due to injury and suspension. During those 66 games he collected 3 goals, 11 assists, and 113 penalty minutes. All 3 of Evans' goals came in a single game, as he scored his first career hat trick on February 23, against the Texas Stars.[2]

Evans signed a one-year contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins for the 2012–13 AHL season.[3] He did not score during the regular season, but he notched the game-winning goal of the deciding Game 6 of the Calder Cup Finals on June 18.[4] On July 9, 2013, Evans re-signed a one-year contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins for the 2013–14 AHL season[5]
