Damon Severson feels like the time is right to start his NHL career.
Severson was unable to secure a roster spot during the Devils' 2013 training camp and ended up spending the 2013-14 campaign with the WHL Kelowna Rockets. "This year there are spots available, spots to be had and I feel like I'm ready to play in the NHL," he said. "I'm just trying to learn everything possible each and every day to get myself to that final destination. And you can't be complacent. You've got to be the best you can every day and you've got to be getting better each time you step on the ice." He's right about there being slots available and Devils coach Pete DeBoer has also brought Severson up as someone that will be competing for a job. That being said, Severson has a bit of an uphill battle ahead of him as he will likely have to beat out at least one of Adam Larsson, Jon Merrill, or Eric Gelinas in order to make the team's roster.

New Jersey Devils coach Pete DeBoer thinks Damon Severson will compete for a roster spot during training camp.

Adam Larsson, Jon Merrill, Eric Gelinas, and Severson will be fighting for as many as three roster spots. Larsson has the inside track as he got a one-way deal and between the four, Severson is the least likely to make the squad. Still, DeBoer isn't ruling him out at this stage.
