Evason and fellow national team member Steve Junker, both forwards, are headed for Landshut, which is coached by Wayne Fleming, a former assistant coach with Canada's National Team under Dave King.

Forward George Zajankala has signed a one-year deal with Koln, another club team in Germany, which is coached by Kevin Primeau, formerly an assistant coach with the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League.
