  • Devils' Damon Severson: Lights lamp in season debut

    Severson (strain) had a goal, two shots, two PIM and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Severson missed New Jersey's first game but made an instant impact in his season debut. He gave the Devils a 2-0 lead just 6:42 into the game and showed instant chemistry with newcomer Ryan Graves, as they both went plus-3 while comprising New Jersey's most effective defensive pairing in this one.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: In action versus Kraken

    Severson (strain) will be activated off injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Seattle.

    Severson missed just one game due to his muscular injury and is set to take on a third-pairing role Tuesday. With the addition of Dougie Hamilton in the offseason, Severson will be hard-pressed to find minutes with the man advantage despite having logged 1:50 of ice time per game with the man advantage last year. As such, the 27-year-old blueliner's ceiling is likely in the 30-35 point range.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Set to play Tuesday

    Severson (strain) is expected back in action versus Seattle on Tuesday. Coach Lindy Ruff told reporters, "Him skating up and saying, 'I'm ready.' That's what went into that decision. Plan will be to play him tomorrow."

    Severson is poised to return after missing the season opener versus Chicago on Friday. Prior to puck drop, Severson will need to be activated off injured reserve, which could see Mason Geertsen demoted to the minors. For his part, Severson tallied 21 points in 56 games last year and should be capable of getting back over the 30-point threshold with a full 82-game campaign.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Not expected to play

    Severson (strain) isn't expected to play Friday versus Chicago, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

    Severson may, however, participate in Friday's morning skate, so he could be cleared to play ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Seattle. The 27-year-old blueliner will need to be activated off injured reserve before making his season debut.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Placed on IR

    Severson (strain) was moved to injured reserve Monday.

    It was reported earlier that Severson could miss Friday's game against Chicago and, if he's healthy, he'll still be eligible to return in time. The 27-year-old blueliner will fit back into his top-four role once he's back on the ice.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: In doubt Friday

    Severson (strain) is questionable for Friday's season opener versus Chicago, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Severson's injury was originally classified as minor yet now the defenseman is in danger of missing Opening Night. Barring an extended stint on the sidelines, Severson should be capable of getting back over the 30-point threshold for the fourth time in his career, making him a decent mid-range fantasy target.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Ruled out of last two preseason games

    Severson (strain) won't play in either of the Devils' last two preseason contests, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Although Severson won't play in either of New Jersey's remaining preseason contests, at this point there's no reason to believe the 27-year-old blueliner won't be available for the Devils' regular-season opener versus Chicago on Oct. 15. Severson picked up three goals and 21 points while averaging 22:29 of ice time in 56 games last campaign.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Suffers muscle strain at practice

    Severson sustained a muscle strain during Monday's practice session, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

    Severson already arrived late to training camp due to a toe problem and now has sustained a new injury. Coach Lindy Ruff didn't seem to think Severson's injury was serious but ruled the defenseman out for Monday's preseason matchup with Washington. In last year's shortened season, Severson posted his lowest point total since his sophomore campaign back in 2015-16. Barring any extended injury absences, Severson should be capable of getting back over the 30-point threshold for the fourth time in his career.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Joins training camp

    Severson (toe) was paired up with Ty Smith during practice Friday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Severson played through a broken toe during the second half of the 2020-21 campaign, but that injury was never expected to impact his availability for training camp. The 27-year-old blueliner picked up three goals and 21 points while averaging 22:29 of ice time through 56 games last season.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Played with broken toe

    Severson played through a broken toe during the second half of the 2020-21 season, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

    Severson's skating was evidently affected by his injury, but he was still relatively productive this season, picking up three goals and 21 points through 56 contests. He should be fully healed in time for next campaign's training camp.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Sets up pair in third period

    Severson collected two assists and two shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over Boston.

    Both of Severson's helpers came in the third period, including a perfect breakaway feed to set up Yegor Sharangovich's game-tying goal with 7:19 left in regulation. It was the second two-assist effort in the last four contests for Severson, who reached the 20-point plateau for the sixth straight season.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Rare productive effort on PP

    Severson dished out two power-play helpers in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.

    Both assists came on first-period Yegor Sharangovich goals. Severson's playing his most productive hockey of the season down the stretch, with four helpers in his last six games. He came into this game with just two power-play points all season, so don't expect Severson to match this level of production with the extra man any time soon.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Remains productive offensively

    Severson supplied an assist Sunday in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Flyers.

    Severson has three assists in the last four games, but his strong effort in the attacking zone hasn't changed New Jersey's fortunes. The Devils have now lost 10 straight games with no chance of making the playoffs, but players on teams like these make for sneaky fantasy options since there is less attention on them in general.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Halts goal, point droughts

    Severson opened the scoring in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Buffalo.

    Severson potted his third goal of the season 4:22 after puck drop, ending goal and point droughts of 14 and five games, respectively. With 13 points in 37 games, Severson's tracking just below a 30-point, 82-game pace. He topped the 30-point mark in three of the previous four seasons but could struggle to reach 20 in the shortened 2020-21 season.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Struggling in featured role

    Severson had a minus-3 rating in a game-high 24:35 of ice time in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders. He didn't record a point, shot or blocked shot.

    This game exemplified Severson's struggles this season. He would be a solid bottom-four blueliner on a better team but he's out of his depth in a top-pairing role with New Jersey. He has eight points in 23 games this season but just one in the last 10.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Returns from COVID-19 protocol

    Severson was activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Sunday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

    Eight players cleared virus protocol Sunday, leaving just five Devils players on the list. The Devils are scheduled to play Tuesday against the Rangers. If they do play, Severson should handle major minutes. Prior to the pause, he averaged 23:44 per game, posting four points and 23 shots on net over nine contests.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Added to protocols list

    Severson has been added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports.

    The Devils now have 14 players on the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list. The team's games have already been postponed through Saturday, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the NHL announce additional delays in the coming days.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Lights lamp in loss

    Severson scored his team's only goal in Thursday's 3-1 loss to Philadelphia.

    Severson gave New Jersey a short-lived 1-0 lead in the first period with his first goal of the season. The blueliner has just two points in seven games after topping 30 in each of the past two seasons and three of the last four.
