Devils sign Severson to 6-year contract

The New Jersey Devils have re-signed restricted free agent defenseman Damon Severson to a six-year, $25 million contract.

Severson will earn $2.5 million this season, $3 million next season, $4.675 million in 2019-20 and 2020-21, $5.05 million in 2021-22, and $5.1 million in the final year of his new deal.

"We are happy to have Damon under contract through the 2022-23 season," said Devils GM Ray Shero. "Damon brings an important dimension to our hockey club and he is a young defenseman that we are excited to work with. This deal shows our ownership's commitment in what we continue to build here. We look forward to helping Damon continue to grow and develop as a player."

Severson, 23, completed his third-full professional season in 2016-17 and set new career-highs with 28 assists, 31 points and 125 shots in 80 regular-season games played.

The Melville, Saskatoon, native has skated in 203 regular-season games with New Jersey since the 2013-14 season, scoring nine goals and 60 assists for 69 points with 112 penalty minutes.

Severson was New Jersey's second choice, 60th overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft.
