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. Neither one was in the lineup Monday however, 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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less

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.

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....

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.

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.... See More ... See Less

If Hamilton takes back top power-play unit duties next season, Severson could find it difficult to replicate this success.... See More ... See Less
