The Charlotte Rush have many great veterans on their Premier team and they are rightly getting noticed by college hockey teams. Another player who earned a spot at the next level this week for the Rush is forward Rhett Evjen, a skilled forward that has 48 points in 37 games for the Rush. Rhett’s two way ability along with his keen vision are just some of the reasons why he will be playing with Stevenson next year. Hear from Trevor Jewell on the process and how Rhett earned the step up.
“We knew once we signed Rhett that he would be a player sought after by the next level. He is a dynamic player with size and skill that you don’t often find at this level.
Once we hit probably October, the emails and phones were ringing asking about him and schools had interest. Coach Dawes at Stevenson was one of the first to reach out and start the process. Our relationship with Coach Dawes & Stevenson is great, we have an alumni there this season in John Musella that was with us last season.
We had some time off and Rhett went on a couple visits, but came back from those and was raving about Stevenson. He loved the campus, his future teammates and the staff. Told us that there was just a certain “buzz” around campus regarding athletics as well as the University in general.
At that point he had a few options, so he did his due diligence and finished his process with all other schools and ultimately he and his family decided on Stevenson.
Coach Dawes and staff did a fantastic job with Rhett’s recruitment and ultimately got themselves a great player and person for the next 4 years. He will be a great addition to the campus and hockey program, congrats to Rhett, his family, Coach Dawes & staff on a great commitment. We look forward to seeing Rhett & Stevenson’s success over the next few years!”
