When Evan Nause heard his name called three weeks ago during the 2021 National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft, he felt a sense of pride and relief, but the former Bishop’s College School (BCS) standout understands that the job is far from over.
“The dream is to make the jump and play at the next level, so it’s a little reassuring that you’re on the right track, but the goal is to have a long NHL career. It’s more fire, more fuel to keep working and put everything I’ve got into it,” said Nause.
The 18-year-old from Riverview, New Brunswick was surrounded by close family — parents, brother, grandparents — during the draft. It was a special moment, he explained, one he won’t soon forget, but he also called it a short-lived milestone.
