Evan Oberg was born on February 16, 1988, in Forestburg, Alberta. A product of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, he went undrafted and signed as a free agent with the Vancouver Canucks in 2009. He began his pro career in the American Hockey League with the Manitoba Moose.

The defenseman got his first taste of NHL action in January of 2010 in a game against the Calgary Flames and would appear in one more game for the club later that season. In 70 games for the Moose in 2009-10 he recorded 26 points, leading the club in scoring among defenseman.

Oberg would see action in two games for the Canucks during the 2010-11 NHL season, but would spend the majority of his time in the American Hockey League with the Manitoba Moose before being dealt to the Florida Panthers at the 2011 NHL trade deadline in exchange for Chris Higgins.
