This defenseman loves heading to Kelowna during the summer months

Damon Severson kicked off his off-season from Devils hockey by gearing up for the 2019 IIHF World Championship where he would represent his home country by skating with Team Canada.

Tweet from @NJDevils: Damon Severson is looking forward to a solid May with Team Canada at #IIHFWorlds.

In the tournament, Severson made his presence known earning six points with one goal and five assists in 10 games played.

Even though this Devil got in some extra playing time after the 2018-19 NHL season, Severson will be heading to Kelowna afterwards to rest up for the 2019-20 season.

Not only is it his favorite place to be during the summer months, but he also trains for the upcoming season with other NHL players.

Tweet from @dseves7: En route to Kelowna to continue preparing for this upcoming season, and enjoy the Okanagan sun of course!

In the off-season, one of his favorite activities is to play softball.

In fact, he's teamed up in years' past with fellow NHLers for a charity softball game.

Tweet from @Jtootoo22: Your inaugural #HomeBase champions ! Thank you Kelowna for all your support for a wonderful cause. @jgorges26 @BGALLY17 @CP0031 @dseves7 @CurtisLazar95 @kghfoundation @KelownaNow

He also enjoys golfing in the off-season, where he can spend time with friends, family, or also raising money for a good cause.

Tweet from @dseves7: Had a great time golfing with my old billets in Kelowna! Good to see them again.

Tweet from @RUHFoundation: Incredible lineup of celebs for the #CelebrityGolfClassic in #yxe this year! @dseves7 #28 with the @NJDevils will be back! #golf4good

When it comes to vacationing, this defenseman would rather be on a beach than go site-seeing, which might be why Hawaii is his favorite place to vacation. 

One place he's never visited but has always wanted to is Cabo, and how could anyone disagree with views like this:

During the summer months, Severson likes doing outdoor activities including spike ball, hiking, wake surfing and hanging out by the lake. This also includes combining his love for Professional Bull Riding with being outdoors.

Tweet from @dseves7: Ready for the Okanagan @PBR Challenge tonight @ProsperaPlace Let���s go! @3D_Bullriding

One thing's for sure, Severson doesn't miss out on being a part of the Okanagan Dream Rally. The rally gives children in need the opportunity to spend a day in the passenger's seat of a dream car. 

Tweet from @dseves7: Great day driving for a cause @augustmotorcars Okanagan Dream Rally. Spent the day cruising with my buddy Ben. #DreamRally

Tweet from @dseves7: Had a blast driving with my boy Carson @augustmotorcars Dream Rally today. Even got to swap halfway for his favourite the Mclaren!
