Devils' Josefson Picks Up Assist Friday

News: Jacob Josefson picked up an assist in Friday's loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Since returning from injured reserve Jan. 19 with a two-point performance against the Sharks, Jacob Josefson has needed 15 games just to match that output. His presence as the Devils' center on the checking line will continue to inhibit his offense.

Shorty Plus An Assist For Devils' Josefson

News: Jacob Josefson potted a goal -- a shorthanded tally -- and dished out an assist in 10:42 of ice time as the Devils downed the Sharks by a 5-2 count on Monday.
Analysis: The points bring his season total from three to five in 27 games this year, suggesting that the mini-outburst is more of a one-off performance than an indication of an upward trend for the fifth-year NHLer.

Devils Activate Josefson (Illness) From IR

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: The activation more than likely indicates that Jacob Josefson will rejoin the lineup Friday against the Islanders after missing the previous six games. He's expected to center the checking line for the Devils.

Devils' Josefson To Remain Out Thursday

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) will remain out of the lineup Thursday against the Bruins, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Though Jacob Josefson has resumed practicing with the team and was cleared by GM Lou Lamoriello to return to action, it appears the Devils will just exercise some precaution in holding him out an extra day. Since the team is beginning a back-to-back set Thursday, look for Josefson to check into the lineup to spell another player Friday against the Islanders.

Devils' Josefson (Illness) To Be Available Thurs.

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) will be available for Thursday's game against the Bruins, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson has missed the previous five games with the illness, but looks to be ready to play after he took part in the Devils' team skate Tuesday morning. All that's left is for the Devils to formally activate him from IR, which should come at some point Thursday morning or afternoon.

Devils' Josefson Out Again Tuesday

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson will miss his fifth straight game Tuesday, but he was able to take part in line rushes during the Devils' morning skate, so he could return to action for the Devils' next game Thursday.

Devils' Josefson Likely Out Tuesday

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) will likely miss Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson is eligible to return from injured reserve at any time, but it appears he's not quite ready to return from the illness that has sidelined him since the end of December. The 23-year-old did practice on Monday, though, so a return Thursday against the Bruins is possible.

Devils' Josefson (Illness) Practices Monday

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) practiced with the team Monday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 27, meaning he could return at any time. His presence at practice Monday likely indicates he is overcoming the illness that sidelined him, and he could be ready to return as soon as Tuesday against the Sabres.

Devils' Josefson (Illness) Placed On IR

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) has been placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Dec. 27.
Analysis: The Devils haven't said that Jacob Josefson is dealing with mumps, but it's believed his illness is more similar to what has been ailing Martin Havlat, who isn't exhibiting any symptoms of the virus. Stephen Gionta (broken hand) is also headed to injured reserve, while Mike Sislo has been recalled from AHL Albany. Josefson's placement on IR will keep him unavailable until at least next Tuesday's game versus the Sabres.

Devils' Josefson Dealing With Illness

News: Jacob Josefson is dealing with an illness, but the Devils' haven't indicated whether the mumps is a possibility, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson did play in Saturday's game against Rangers, but didn't practice Sunday which could lead to him missing Monday's game. Seth Helgeson was dressed as a forward at Sunday's practice in his place, but the Devils could make a move Monday if he is unable to go.

Devils' Josefson Will Play Saturday

News: Jacob Josefson (groin) will play Saturday against the Rangers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson will return to the Devils' lineup after missing the team's last three games due to injury. He's tallied three points and 23 shots on goal through 25 games this season.

Devils' Josefson (Groin) Remains Out

News: Jacob Josefson (groin) will remain out of the lineup Tuesday versus the Hurricanes, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson hasn't resumed skating since injuring his groin last Wednesday in a loss to the Senators. He still remains on the Devils' active roster heading into Tuesday's contest, but it appears the team will simply play with 11 forwards and seven defensemen instead of moving Josefson to IR and calling up an extra center.

Devils' Josefson Not On Ice For Warmups Friday

News: Jacob Josefson (groin) was not on the ice for the Devils' pregame warmups on Friday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Because Jacob Josefson was not on the ice for the team's pregame warmups, it's hard to imagine a scenario where he would be able to suit up Friday for the Devils' matchup with Tampa Bay. Tim Sestito will likely center New Jersey's fourth line in place of Josefson.

Devils' Josefson Not Being Ruled Out

News: Though he didn't take part in the Devils' morning skate, Jacob Josefson (groin) hasn't been ruled out for Friday's game against the Lightning, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said that Jacob Josefson is still a possibility Friday night, since the center took the option of sitting out the morning skate in attempt to aid his recovery. He'll officially be a coach's decision for the match, leaving Pete DeBoer to make the choice between Josefson or Tim Sestito as his fourth-line center.

Devils' Josefson Looks To Be Out Friday

News: Jacob Josefson (groin) looks to be out Friday against the Lightning, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson missed the Devils' morning skate Friday, indicating the groin tweak he suffered Wednesday night wasn't as minor as the team had initially led on. Tim Sestito was recalled from AHL Albany on Thursday and will fill his Josefson's spot as the Devils' fourth-line center.

Devils' Josefson Tweaks Groin

News: Jacob Josefson tweaked his groin in Wednesday's loss to the Senators and was forced out of practice early Thursday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson wasn't forced to miss significant time due to the injury Wednesday, but he didn't feel right while skating at practice the following day. He's still optimistic about his chances of playing Friday against Tampa Bay, but his availability won't be known until the Devils complete their morning skate that day.

Devils' Josefson To Make Season Debut Friday

News: Jacob Josefson will make his season debut Friday against the Stars, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With Jordin Tootoo (bruised foot) landing on IR, Jacob Josefson will be tasked with taking his place on the Devils' fourth line. Josefson had been a healthy scratch in each of the Devils' previous six games of the season and figures to return to the press box when Tootoo is activated from IR, which could happen at some point next week.

Devils' Josefson Inks Two-Year Contract

News: Jacob Josefson has officially agreed to a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the Devils, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: The deal is a one-way contract, likely securing Jacob Josefson's spot on the opening-night roster as a depth center. He notched just three points, four PIM and 15 hits in 27 games with the Devils last season, numbers that don't give him much fantasy appeal.

Devils' Josefson Expected To Sign Tuesday

News: Jacob Josefson is expected to sign a deal with the Devils on Tuesday, The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson appeared in 27 games for the Devils last season, recording a goal and two assists to go with four penalty minutes.

News: Jacob Josefson (foot) acknowledged that he likely would have been available for the playoffs had the Devils earned a berth, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson missed the final five games with a foot injury, but this bit of news suggests that he enters the offseason in rather sound health.

Devils' Josefson Not Traveling With Team

News: Jacob Josefson (foot) didn't travel with the Devils for Thursday's game in Ottawa, reports Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger.

Devils' Josefson Out Saturday

News: Jacob Josefson (undisclosed) is out for Saturday's game, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.

Devils' Josefson Suffers Undisclosed Injury

News: Jacob Josefson left Friday's game due to an undisclosed injury, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: With Jacob Josefson, Patrik Elias (head), and Adam Henrique (undisclosed) all suffering injuries during Friday's game, defenseman Eric Gelinas is being used as a winger. Unlike Henrique and Elias, Josefson has not officially been ruled out for the night by the team.

Devils' Josefson A Habitual Healthy Scratch

News: Jacob Josefson has appeared in just two games since being activated from injured reserve Jan. 16.
Analysis: With the Devils healthy at the other forward spots for the last month, coach Pete DeBoer has settled on Stephen Gionta as his fourth-line center, leaving Jacob Josefson as a regular healthy scratch. Josefson's situation is unlikely to change dramatically after the break.

Devils Activate Josefson

News: Jacob Josefson (illness) was activated from injured reserve Thursday, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson had been sidelined since Jan. 4 after contracting the flu during a trip to Buffalo, but it appears he's regained his strength after sitting out the last two weeks. It remains unclear if he'll be used in the lineup Thursday vs. the Avalanche.
