Severson looks like he has an awesome skill set. I really hope Kelowna wins the WHL playoffs so I can see Severson at the Colisée Pepsi during the Memorial Cup, since I live in Quebec!

went to battalion site watched highlights of 7-4 NB loss.  It looked like horrendous goaltending. Thompson's goal was nice.  I wondered how he scored, but still was -2. Everything Colts threw at the net went in. 

Anyone know which line he plays on? I know he probably projects to be a 4th line "energy' guy if he even makes it. We don't have many players like this in the org

According to this recent article, looks like he's on the top line with Barclay Goodrow and Nick Paul. Seems like he's one of their key penalty killers too.

I'm pretty excited about Thompson.  I wish we could go to prospects camp in July.

Prospect Signing
According to CapGeek, it appears C Graham Black has signed a 3 year ELC with the Devils. It appears to be a two way deal ($65k AHL/$650K NHL cap hit split). Looks like he picked up a nice $75k/yr signing bonus.

Worth watching to see Severson, other prospects, and really entertaining hockey.

Johnson/Thompson must both be signed by a certain date, or they go back into the draft.  Anyone know this date?

I am fairly certain that June 1st is the deadline. I think Gavrus falls into that since he was drafted out of the OHL, though I doubt they sign him. I think Bell has to be signed or he'll become a UFA due to his age and no longer being eligible for junior.

Per TG Gavrus is a "defected player", so he's still under the control, not sure for how much longer.

Oh yeah, you're right.  Assuming that Gavrus's leaving Owen Sound for his Belarussian team last year constitutes defection, NJ has rights over him for another 2 years.  That's good news.  If it doesn't, things get more complex - the Devils would've had to have extended Gavrus a contract offer, otherwise nothing about his status changes.
