Damon Severson scored the only goal on Saturday night as the New Jersey Devils lost 4-1 to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Severson had an assist from Taylor Hall and Travis Zajac—their third assist in both cases—but it was not enough to stem the loss. The Devils gained the advantage briefly with this score at the 14:39 minute mark of the first period, but Ben Bishop turned stingy for the remainder of the game and was perfect in the final two periods. This was Severson’s second goal of the season and his ninth point. Nov 6 - 1:30 AM

Damon Severson might end up playing alongside Andy Greene this season.

Severson has been paired with Greene before, but in 2015-16 Greene and Adam Larsson spent the vast majority of the season playing together. The Devils traded away Larsson though, so there's an opening. "You see how successful we were before I got injured as a pairing," Severson said of his previous stint with Greene during the 2014-15 campaign. "I was the most comfortable ever since I got here with him. Obviously, he’s a good defenseman and an easy guy to play with. It makes you excited to play with a guy like that. As a captain, he’s one of the greatest leaders on our team. To be able to play alongside that will just help me as a player. Hopefully, we’ll stick together for a long time, feed off each other and play big minutes for the team and be successful."

Despite only 12 points this year, Damon Severson has been playing well in his second season.

Severson started last season with a flurry of points and saw first defense pairing time but this season he is on the second and third defense pairing and it has made a difference. "At the start of last season I was playing with Greener up until my injury. We were seeing the other teams' top lines. There's a different aspect to your game (in that role). You're playing against the other team's top line. But, at the same time, those top lines look for so much offense that, when they don't get their offense, you're able to get offense out of their missed opportunities. When they'd get off the rush and wouldn't score, I was able to jump in the play and create more offense. I think this year second and third lines aren't as much risk-takers. Those first lines have a little more leeway. If they do make a mistake they know they're going to get right back out there and make plays. Those second and third lines are a little more careful, so you get a little better back check".

In development camp, other prospects leaned on Damon Severson because of his experience.

Of course, Severson has only 51 games of NHL experience under his belt himself. The 20-year-old performed admirably in his first season, tallying 17 points. "I'm obviously not a seasoned veteran, I've only played one year in the NHL, but I've been around here," Severson said. "I've learned things over the past year and I've enjoyed my time here, so I'm just looking forward to this year coming up. Hopefully these younger guys that I'm here with are learning from me as well as much as I can teach them."

Damon Severson scored for the Devils in their 3-2 loss to the Panthers on Saturday night.

Though the 20-year-old had not recorded a point since March 23, Severson has the makings of a good offensive blueliner. He finishes his rookie season with five goals and 17 points in 51 games. Jordin Tootoo scored the other goal, while Steve Bernier (15) and Adam Henrique (12) led the way in penalty minutes.

Damon Severson had two assists in the Devils win over Arizona Saturday.

Severson missed a chunk of the season as he was out from December 15-March 3 with a fractured left ankle. He now has four goals and 15 points in 38 games. He sees a lot of power play time and that will only increase in the years to come so think about him in the late rounds of deeper drafts next season.
