The Devils re-signed D Damon Severson to a six-year, $25 million contract, GM Ray Shero announced Monday.
Severson, 23, has spent his first three NHL seasons with the Devils, who now have him under contract until the 2022-23 season.
"Damon brings an important dimension to our hockey club and he is a young defenseman that we are excited to work with," Shero said. "This deal shows our ownership's commitment in what we continue to build here. We look forward to helping Damon continue to grow and develop as a player."
Severson spent his entire 2016-17 campaign with the Devils, where he notched a career-high 28 assists and three goals in 80 games. He led all defensemen on the team in both assists and points.
He is set to make $2.5 million this season while earning $5.1 million in the final year of his contract.
