2005-06: Severyn’s big offensive numbers playing for the Pittsburgh Hornets did not seem to carry over to the U-17 team.  In 63 games, Severyn recorded 21 points (five goals, 16 assists).  Playing for the silver medal winning Team USA U-17 squad at the 2006 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, Severyn recorded two points (one goal, one assist) in seven games.

2006-07: The forward competed with the US National U18 Team (USDP) this season, appearing in 48 contests with the club; Severyn tallied six goals and 16 points with the U18 squad. He also netted a pair of goals and three points through seven games at the WJC-18, where his team took Silver.
 
2007-08: Severyn joined up with Ohio State University this season, registering two assists in 32 games; he was an Ohio State Scholar-Athlete this season.

2008-09: In his sophomore season with OSU, Severyn tallied nine goals and 12 points through 33 games as a Buckeye.

2009-10: Severyn played as the fourth line center for all of his junior season with the Ohio State Buckeyes. He would score nine goals along with six assists and a minus one rating in 38 CCHA games. The physical centerman was able to score two power play goals and one game winning goal this season.

2010-11: Severyn was a constant presence in the bottom six for Ohio State over the course of his four year CCHA career. He never played much of an offensive role for the Buckeyes but scored seven goals with five assists and had a plus two rating in 37 games as a senior. The senior centerman was able to score one power play goal, one shorthanded goal and two game winning goals in his final season at Ohio State.

Talent Analysis

Severyn is not the biggest of forwards but will battle in the tough areas around the net and along the boards. He has average speed, offensive and defensive skills. The smart centerman will be a fourth line player who can help on the power play and penalty killing but must increase his muscle mass to play at the professional level.

Future

Severyn will need to impress the Flames at training camp to get an entry level contract or could be released. He could be assigned to the AHL Abbottsford Heat to adjust to the professional level and the grueling schedule.
