Monument Hockey Academy grad Evans moving up ladder, signs with USPHL’s Spacemen for ’23-24 season


Trevor Evans was born in Southern California, but since 2019 has honed his game in Colorado with the Monument Hockey Academy.

For the upcoming 2023-24 season, Evans has signed to play junior hockey for the USPHL’s Fort Wayne Spacemen.

“I got the opportunity to sign with Fort Wayne because one of my best friends, Noah Takitani, who is also from Colorado, asked if I would want to play there next year and would get me in contact with the coaches so they could see if there would be an opportunity for me,” said Evans. “They gave me a shot and I have been working my hardest to prove I deserve it.

“What appealed to me was that they were a great team last year going pretty far at nationals and I have heard nothing but great things about the coaching staff and players.”

Joining Evans and Takitani in Fort Wayne will be another Colorado product, Broomfield’s Joe Richardson.

“I knew Noah and got opportunities to meet some of the guys over summer,” Evans said. “One of my other best friends Joe Richardson will also be there, too.”

Evans, who calls Castle Rock home, said he started playing hockey in 2011 because he watched a lot of hockey on TV, would frequently go to Anaheim Ducks and LA Kings games with his dad, “and decided it was something I really wanted to try,” said Evans.

“In 2019, I got the opportunity to move and billet in Colorado playing 16U AAA for the Monument Hockey Academy and then I never left as my family moved not too long after I did,” said Evans.

Looking forward, Evans has simple and reachable goals.

“My main goal with hockey is to play at the collegiate level and get a good education in the process,” he said.
