Meet a Maverick: Evan Vossena

Meet a Maverick: Evan Vossena

January 5, 2013

By Fred Liggett

Special to The Tribune

The Missouri Mavericks have a number of newcomers this season that have started off the year hot. One of them is Forward Evan Vossen who has been a Maverick for five weeks. The 26-year-old CHL rookie is in his first season of pro hockey overall.

Voss, as he is called by his teammates, began the year playing in the ECHL for the Utah Grizzlies. The left hander is a big Montreal Canadianís fan as he grew up following them. For the past five years he went to school in Montreal allowing him to support the NHL team in person. Evanís favorite hockey memory so far happened while in school at McGill University. Evan not only played in the national championship game last year but scored the game winning goal for McGill.

Vossen is from Swift Current, Saskatchewan and still at home are his mom Kim, dad Dale and a younger sister. If not in hockey he would be finishing his degree and looking for a coaching job somewhere. Evanís career goal is to live the dream of playing pro hockey and enjoy it as long as it lasts. On those long bus rides in the CHL he watches movies and listens to music. If a movie is made about his life he hopes Denzel Washington gets the role.

Vossen does cook and he readily admits he is a big steak guy. After his playing days Evan would like to be remembered as being a good teammate. Vossen is very new to the area and hasnít seen much of the KC metro area. He has mainly stayed on I-70 and remained close to his apartment and the arena.
The Missouri Mavericks continue their current home stand by hosting the Denver Cutthroats Saturday night. The puck drops at 7:05p at the Independence Events Center.
