A day after picking up a commitment from Wyatt Head, Quinnipiac picked up another commitment this time when Green Bay Gamblers goaltender Evan Fear announced on his Instagram page that he was committed to Quinnipiac. The Gamblers also announced it in a press release as well. Fear is a 6'2, 196 pound goaltender that catches with his left hand. A native of Winnetka, Illinois which is just north of Chicago, Fear has played in three games so far for Green Bay going 1-2 with a 3.04 goals against average and a .898 save percentage. The commitment is possibly for the 2019-2020 season but also could be for the following year. He is the second committed USHL goaltender Quinnipiac has following fellow 1999 born Justin Robbins who plays for the Chicago Steel.
