Melville product Severson signs new 6-year deal with the NJ Devils
The New Jersey Devils have signed restricted free agent Damon Severson (pictured above) to a six-year, $25 million contract
The contract holds an average annual value of just over $4.16 million.
"Ya obviously its exciting to get the deal done, every kid has a dream to play in the NHL and to get a commitment from a team for 6 years is pretty special", Severson said in a phone interview this morning (Thurs)
The Melville product scored three goals and posted 28 assists in 80 games with the Devils last season.
Severson has skated in 203 regular-season games with New Jersey since the 2013-14 season, scoring nine goals and 60 assists for 69 points with 112 penalty minutes.
