The Devils haven't made the playoffs in five consecutive seasons, but the team recently locked up an integral part of its young core in an attempt to build toward the future. On September 11, 2017, New Jersey signed 23-yea- old defenseman Damon Severson to a six-year, $25-million contract extension that will expire following the 2022-23 season. Devils General Manager Ray Shero commented that the deal signals ownership's commitment to continue building toward the future, and Severson should receive every chance to prove his worth in the upcoming season as a first-pairing defenseman.

The Melville, Saskatchewan native will make $2.5 million this season, but his salary will rise to $5.1 million by the final year of his contract. He had a career-best season last year as he led the Devils' defensemen in points with 31 through 80 games. To date, he has 69 points in 203 career games.
