  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Placed on injured reserve

    Severson (oblique) was put on injured reserve Thursday.

    Severson is expected to miss another five weeks of action after he was injured Nov. 19 versus the Flyers. Severson has three goals, five assists, 21 shots on goal and 35 blocked shots in 19 games this season. A return in early January is likely for the 29-year-old blueliner.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Set to miss about six weeks

    Severson is expected to be out of action for approximately six weeks due to an oblique injury.

    Severson was injured in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Philadelphia. He has produced three goals, five assists, 21 shots on net and 35 blocked shots in 19 appearances this season. Adam Boqvist could receive an expanded role during Severson's absence.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Exits Sunday's contest

    Severson (upper body) will not return to Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

    Severson posted a minus-1 rating and one hit in 9:57 of ice time before leaving the game. The 29-year-old has been a solid contributor on the blue line this season, tallying three goals, eight points, 35 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 19 games. An update on his status should be available before Wednesday's tilt with Chicago.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Scores twice against Yotes

    Severson scored two goals on three shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Arizona.

    Severson never had a two-goal performance in 81 games with the Devils last season, scoring seven goals on the year. Given his limited goal scoring, fantasy players should probably be expecting extended slumps for Severson like the seven-game scoreless stretch he just ended with Thursday's performance.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Scores first goal of season

    Severson scored his first goal of the season in Monday's 5-3 road loss against the Stars.

    Severson scored on his only shot attempt of the game, helped out by Adam Fantilli and Zach Werenski in the first period, giving Columbus a 2-1 lead at the time. He also finished with four blocked shots in his 21:46 of ice time. He led all Columbus defensemen with 2:09 of time on the power play, too. That being said, he still has rather minimal fantasy appeal, with Werenski outranking Severson on the Blue Jackets' overall depth chart.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: First points of season

    Severson put up two assists in a 5-4 overtime win over the Wild on Saturday.

    His recent benching seems to have had its desired outcome. The points are Severson's first on the season. Two seasons ago, Severson put up 46 points. He might not be that kind of scorer in Columbus, but he should be better than the 33 points he put up last season.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Benched in Monday's loss

    Severson didn't see a shift in the third period of Monday's 4-0 loss to the Red Wings, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    The former Devil wound up seeing only 11:57 of ice time after topping 21 minutes in each of his first two games of the season. Severson finished the contest with a minus-2 rating, and no points, hits or blocked shots, but he was far from alone in having a bad night. Coach Pascal Vincent is still trying to find a lineup combination that provides a consistent effort, but Severson's benching is likely only temporary given Columbus' other blue line options, especially with Zach Werenski (quadriceps) unavailable.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Two helpers Monday

    Severson collected two assists in Monday's 5-3 preseason win over the Blues.

    Picked up from the Devils in the offseason to bolster the Blue Jackets' blue line, Severson is in line for major minutes in Columbus, although he'll be behind the likes of Zach Werenski and Adam Boqvist for power-play time. However, neither one was in the lineup Monday, allowing Severson to flash the skills that led to 11 goals and 46 points in 80 games two seasons ago. Expect the 29-year-old to deliver something more like the seven goals and 33 points in 81 games that he produced in 2022-23 during his first campaign with the Jackets.

  • Blue Jackets' Damon Severson: Dealt to Columbus

    Severson agreed Friday with the Devils on an eight-year, $50-million contract and was subsequently traded to the Blue Jackets in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft, Chris Johnston of TSN reports.

    Severson was eligible for free agency next month, but the only way Severson was getting an eighth year on his contract was if the Devils signed him. New Jersey picks up the 80th pick in the draft for a player they evidently weren't going to retain. Severson is the second blueliner in the last three days to be traded to the Blue Jackets after the team acquired Ivan Provorov on Tuesday. Severson had seven goals and 26 assists in 81 regular-season games with New Jersey in 2022-23.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Continues to shine

    Severson registered an assist in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Sabres.

    Severson was the secondary distributor on the Devils' first goal; a little chip shot from Yegor Sharangovich. The 28-year-old Severson has been a model for consistency, as he's compiled two goals, eight assists and a plus-6 rating through 13 games this month, and he missed the scoresheet in just four of those contests.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: One of each in overtime win

    Severson scored a power-play goal on two shots, added an assist and blocked two shots in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Coyotes.

    Severson set up a Jesper Boqvist goal late in the first period before scoring one of his own in the second. This was Severson's first multi-point effort since Jan. 13, when he had three assists against the lowly Ducks. The defenseman isn't anywhere near the pace he showed in producing 46 points over 80 contests a year ago -- he has five tallies, 16 helpers, 79 shots on net, 85 blocks and a plus-6 rating through 61 outings in 2022-23.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Tacks on helper

    Severson registered an assist and three blocked shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canucks.

    Seventy-five percent of Severson's points have come in wins this season, but with only four goals and 12 assists total, the defenseman will be hard-pressed to come near the career-high 46 points that he set with New Jersey last season. He is, however, consistently adding value in the defensive zone with 71 blocked shots through 49 games.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Supplies helper

    Severson produced an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

    Severson has seen his offense slip back after starting January well -- he has just a goal and an assist over his last seven games. The 28-year-old defenseman is up to 15 points, 59 shots on net, 69 blocked shots, 30 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 48 outings this season. He's still in a top-four role, so he may have some fantasy value in deeper formats.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Finds twine Thursday

    Severson scored a goal on three shots and blocked six shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Kraken.

    Severson got the Devils on the board at 11:32 of the second period. The 28-year-old defenseman has been much better on offense lately with two goals, six assists and a plus-6 rating over his last eight appearances. For the season, he's at 14 points, 52 shots on net, 58 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 44 contests while maintaining a top-four role and some time on the second power-play unit.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Distributes three assists in win

    Severson notched three assists and three shots on goal in Friday's 6-2 win over the Ducks.

    Severson has suddenly turned his offense back on with a goal and six helpers over his last five games. Prior to this burst of production, he was limited to one helper over 17 contests. The 28-year-old defenseman is up to three goals, 10 assists, 47 shots on net, 46 blocked shots, 28 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 41 outings overall.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Scores overtime winner

    Severson scored a goal on five shots, leading the Devils to a 4-3 overtime win over the Rangers on Saturday.

    Severson beat Igor Shesterkin with a wrist shot on a 2-on-1 with Nico Hischier in overtime. This performance extends Severson's point streak to three games with three points in that span. On the season, Severson has three goals and nine points in 39 games.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Not playing Saturday

    Severson won't play Saturday against Florida, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    It is believed that Severson will be a healthy scratch in the contest. He has registered six points, 32 shots on goal, 31 blocks and 15 hits in 30 games this season. Kevin Bahl will be in the lineup instead.

  • Devils' Damon Severson: Boat not lifted by rising tide

    Severson had one shot, one blocked shot, two PIM and one hit in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers.

    Meager stat lines like Monday's have become the norm for Severson, who is one of the few players to regress for a Devils team that's getting career years from much of its roster. After totaling a career-high 46 points last season, Severson's on pace to fall short of 20 with just six points through 28 games.
