During his first two seasons as a Saint, Mark Evans has made an impact as a defensive midfielder and face-off man. A tough and determined player, Evans helps anchor the Saints’ man-down defense and is one of the team’s top face-off men. A hard dodger with a hard shot, Evans scored 5 goals last season and added an assist. For his career, Evans has 11 goals and 4 assists, and has won 55% of his faceoffs.

In just his second season as a Saint, Hunter Perry has already established himself as a respected leader who leads by example. A driven and athletic midfielder, Perry has become one of the team’s top defensive midfielders after transitioning from defenseman. Perry will also take face-offs for the Saints and will look to add his powerful shot to the offensive end of the field.
