The New Jersey Devils are trying to send a message to young defenseman Damon Severson with a healthy scratch.
Severson, 21, showed flashes of brilliance in generating 17 points with the Devils in 2014-15. It could be a long season for the vast majority of Devils, but the organization likely hopes to see progress from players such as Severson. Oct 10 - 2:06 PM

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.

Damon Severson saw his minutes go up in his second game back from an ankle injury.

Severson suffered the injury on December 15 so there is definitely some rust in his game. He is currently playing the point on the second power play behind Eric Gelinas but he should qb the first unit next season. Gelinas played 18:51 after getting in 16:21 in his first game back on Tuesday. He is worth looking at next season in deeper leagues.
Mar 7 - 8:10 AM

Damon Severson (ankle) logged 16:21 minutes of ice time on Tuesday in his first game since Dec. 15.

"I felt pretty comfortable out there," Severson said. "I think that's the main thing with me as a player and as a person, just being confident on and off the ice and just doing my thing no matter what. The coaches put their trust in me and the management put their trust in me to put me right back in the fire and I just tried to do my thing out there and have some fun." Devils GM and interim coach Lou Lamoriello was pleased with how Severson played given how much time he missed. Severson has four goals and 12 points in 33 games this season.
Mar 4 - 9:14 AM

Damon Severson (ankle) will be back in the Devils' lineup on Tuesday.

Severson hasn't played since Dec. 15 and he might be eased back into the lineup. To that end, the Devils are expected to dress seven blueliners. Forwards Michael Ryder and Martin Havlat will spend the game in the press box.
Mar 3 - 11:29 AM

Damon Severson (ankle) could return to the New Jersey lineup as early as Tuesday.

By the time Tuesday rolls around Severson will have missed 31 games. He got off to a great start and led the Devils in power play time on ice before his injury so look for him to regain his spot on the point eventually. "It feels like it's soon. My body, as far as the ankle, is healed. My conditioning is just a step off," Severson said. "I need those few extra days of conditioning to make sure I'm back up to speed. "I'm just waiting to get back. It's been a long wait. Every day it's gotten a little better. I haven't had any setbacks or anything like that, so that's been a positive for me." Stay tuned as Severson had four goals and 12 points in 32 games with six assists on the power play before getting hurt on December 15.
Feb 28 - 8:10 AM

Damon Severson (ankle) isn't expected to return to the Devils' lineup in the near future.

Severson resumed skating a little over a week ago, but Devils GM Lou Lamoriello warned that he'll still be out for "a while." Severson hasn't played since Dec. 15 and with less than two months left in the season, we aren't confident that he'll return in time to have much of an impact from a fantasy perspective.
Feb 20 - 7:46 AM

Damon Severson (ankle) isn't ready to practice with his teammates yet.

"It's just the situation of getting him back in shape," Lamoriello said. "He's been off the ice for eight weeks and unfortunately with that type of an injury, unlike Stephen Gionta (who was sidelined with a fractured left hand), you can't start skating too early." Severson hasn't played since Dec. 15, but has been skating on his own for a more than a week.
Feb 18 - 3:21 PM

Damon Severson (ankle) won't travel with the New Jersey Devils on their upcoming two-game road trip.

The Devils will play in Chicago on Friday and Nashville on Saturday. Severson has resumed skating, but he still need to work on his conditioning. It's possible that he'll have a brief stint in the AHL before returning to the Devils' lineup.
Feb 12 - 9:26 AM

Damon Severson (ankle) has been given the green light to resume skating.

The call was made after he had an X-ray done on his fractured left ankle. At this point, he needs to focus on getting his conditioning back up after missing roughly two months of action. To that end, he might go through a stint in the AHL before playing for the Devils again. He has four goals and 12 points in 32 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 10 - 4:19 PM

Damon Severson (ankle) might resume skating next week.

Severson had an X-ray this week and if a followup X-ray determines that he's still healing at the same pace, then he'll be back on the ice soon. He has four goals and 12 points in 32 contests this season.
Feb 6 - 10:11 AM

Damon Severson had another X-ray on his ankle this week.

"He's going to come out of the walking cast and just be put in a boot now," said GM and interim coach Lou Lamoriello. "It will be at least another two to three weeks (before he starts skating)." Severson has been out of action since Dec. 15 because of a non-displaced fracture in his left ankle.
Jan 22 - 5:42 PM

Damon Severson has been placed on the injured reserve list with a hairline fracture in his ankle.

Severson is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks due to the injury. He was moved to the injured reserve list to make room for Adam Larsson (mumps), who has been sent to AHL Albany for a conditioning stint.
