Manitoba Young Guns Series Player Profile – Evan Herman
Hometown: The Pas
Team: RHA Nationals Bantam Prep
What kind of player are you? My game is very fast, tenacious, goal scoring and 2-way game. I like to play in the dirty areas, and use my speed to take advantage of defenders. I like to work as hard on defence as offence to help my team be successful.
Interests/Hobbies: I like to hunt, fish farm, play lacrosse and be outside. I also like to race dirt-bike and ride my quad. In the summer i like to go to the lake with my family and enjoy my time with them.
Achievements (sport and/or academically): Full time honour student. Munn Cup MVP. The Pas best forwards in peewee. 2016 MB Bantam Showcase MVP.
What are your hockey goals for the future? I would like to play my junior years in Canada and hopefully go professional after that.
RHA Nationals Head Coach Brad Purdie on Evan: He has been outstanding for us. He brings energy every shift, can play in all situations and is a quiet leader. He has the respect of his teammates and coaches and has a very bright future. He is a pleasure to have on our team. He is an outstanding student and even better person.
