International career

Evason first played for Canada at the 1984 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships while in the midst of a terrific campaign for the Kamloops Junior Oilers. His selection to the squad was somewhat of a surprise, but he proved to be a productive player, recording 6 goals and 9 points in 7 games for the fourth-place Canadian squad.[1] The Canadians narrowly missed out on a medal to the third-place Czechoslovakian team, losing 6-4 in their match against them that decided the medals. It would be thirteen additional years before Evason was again selected to represent his country.

His next and final opportunity occurred in 1997 when Canadian national team coach Andy Murray offered him a spot on the roster and the captaincy in exchange for playing a full season for the-then full-time national team. Evason was the only non-NHL player on the Canadian roster that went on to win their first gold medal at the tournament in three years over Sweden in the finals, scoring 2 goals and 5 points in 11 games over the tournament.[2]
