The 6-2, 195-lb. defenseman posted seven goals and 30 assists for 37 points and 80 penalty minutes in 56 regular-season games with Kelowna (WHL) last season. He also added two goals in four playoff contests. Severson has career totals of 11 goals and 43 assists for 54 points and 133 penalty minutes in 125 games over two-plus seasons for the Rockets.
