The New Jersey Devils have announced that they have agreed to a $25-million, six-year deal, which does not include a no-trade clause, with restricted free agent Damon Severson.
“We are happy to have Damon under contract through the 2022-23 season,” said general manager 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, who is now the second highest paid defenseman on the team, was a second-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. Last season he had 31 points (three goals, 28 assists).
