Cam Severson (born January 15, 1978, in Norquay, Saskatchewan, Canada) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre.

Draft

He was drafted in the eighth round, 192nd overall, by the San Jose Sharks in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.

Career

After playing five full seasons in the Western Hockey League and part of a sixth, Severson joined the Central Hockey League's Oklahoma City Blazers during the 1998–99 season. He spent the 1999–2000 season in the ECHL and part of the 2000–01 season in the United Hockey League before joining the American Hockey League. He was spent the majority of his professional career playing for various AHL teams, but has made a few stops in the National Hockey League.

Severson played two games for the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim during the 2002–03 season and 31 during the 2003–04 season, during which he scored three goals. Most recently, he appeared in two games with the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2005–06 season, after his rights were acquired from the Calgary Flames on February 28 in exchange for Cale Hulse.

He moved to Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga in 2006, joining the Straubing Tigers. He stayed with the Tigers in the 2007–08 season, but with just one goal in 13 games, he was let go by the team.

In 2008 he was offered a job as an assistant coach of the Spokane Chiefs, a major junior team in the Western Hockey League, but instead joined Steaua Bucureşti Hockey, a Romanian Hockey League team. Severson became both the first Canadian and former NHL player to play in Romania. Mid-way through the season, Severson was named assistant coach of the team, and promoted to head coach. He was a player/coach of Steaua Bucureşti Hockey of the Romanian Hockey League and Liga MOL in Romania. He went back to the United States to sign with the Mississippi RiverKings on August 18,2009.
