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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Severson assisted on Yegor Sharangovich's overtime winner in Saturday's 2-1 triumph over Boston.
Severson got the puck along the boards in the neutral zone and had the presence of mind to flick a no-look backhand pass to a streaking Sharangovich late in the extra session. Sharangovich converted the opportunity, giving New Jersey the win seconds before these two opponents would have gone to a second consecutive shootout to open the season. Outside of his pretty pass, Severson hasn't had much involvement on offense in the early going, with only one shot on net through two games.
Severson registered an assist, four shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues.
Severson set up Dakota Mermis' first NHL goal in the second period. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Severson. The 25-year-old defenseman has produced another steady year offensively with 29 points in 67 games. He's added 113 shots, 90 blocked shots and 77 hits, but also carries an unsightly minus-22 rating that could scare off some fantasy owners.
Severson scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.
He sprung Jesper Bratt for a breakaway goal to help open the scoring midway through the first period, then Severson avoided overtime by going top shelf on Ilya Samsonov with just under two minutes left in the third. The Devils' D-man had been held off the scoresheet in the prior four games, but Severson still has an impressive three goals and 11 points in the last 13 contests.
Severson dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.
Severson now has an eight-game point streak rolling, and six of his nine points in this stretch have come on the power play. The 25-year-old defenseman's recent surge has him on pace to challenge last year's career-high output of 39 points if he can stay healthy the rest of the way.
Severson posted a point and two blocked shots across 29:24 in Tuesdays 5-4 shootout loss to the Canadiens.
Severson has logged major minutes on the backend this year, but he exceeded his previous season high by 2:34. The 25-year-old sports a four-game point streak and has reached 20 points for the fifth straight season. With a strong end of the year, Severson could certainly reach the 39-point mark he hit last year.
Severson produced an assist, three hits and two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.
Severson earned the secondary helper on Travis Zajac's second-period tally. In his last four games, the defenseman has a goal and three assists. Severson has 16 points, 55 hits, 59 blocked shots and 65 shots on goal through 45 games this season while playing mostly in the Devils' top-four.
Severson recorded a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.
After dishing a helper on Blake Coleman's goal in the opening frame, Severson was the beneficiary of a fortuitous bounce and call in the second. He was the last Devils player to touch the puck before Jacob Trouba kicked it into his own net. The net was dislodged on the play, but a review awarded Severson his fifth goal of the season.
Severson scored a goal and supplied two assists with a plus-4 rating in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Severson's tally made it 3-1 at 7:22 of the second period. He also assisted on goals by Blake Coleman and Pavel Zacha in the third period. The three-point burst gave Severson 11 points through 36 games, to go with 47 shots on goal, 49 blocked shots and 38 hits. The 25-year-old isn't likely to match the 39 points he put last season.
Severson picked up two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights.
The blueliner did a little bit of everything, adding one shot, two blocked shots, two PIM and one hit to his ledger. It was Severson's first multi-point performance of the season, and he remains off the fantasy radar in most formats with three goals and seven points through 27 games.
Severson finished with a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Calgary, adding a shot and two blocks.
Severson was the lone Devils player with a rating worse than minus-1 in the game. He's no stranger to struggles in the rating category, as Severson's minus-10 mark this season brings his career rating to minus-97 through 375 games. With just three points in 14 games, he's not doing nearly enough elsewhere to counteract his shortcomings in the category.
Severson scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to Edmonton.
Severson's goal with 4:25 left in regulation looked like it would be the winner, but Connor McDavid answered back with just over a minute to play. While Severson skated a team-high 25:02 in this one, only 29 seconds came on the power play. That power-play total ranked a distant third among the team's defensemen behind P.K. Subban (2:57) and Sami Vatanen (1:03). If he doesn't play much with the extra man, Severson will be fighting an uphill battle to reach last year's output of 39 points.
