Severson was a 2nd Round Pick in 2012. He's 6'2'' and weighs a little over 200 pounds. During the 2021-2022 campaign, he registered a career high in points with 46 over 80 games.


The Devils have recently drafted a highly touted prospect in Sinon Nemec and they may not require Severson next season. His current deal carries a $4.16M AAV but he will hit the free agency market when comes July 1st, should the Canucks take a run at him?
