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.
Analysis: This is actually two pieces of news, as Jacob Josefson's injury had not previously been clarified; we now know it's to his left foot.

Devils' Josefson Out Saturday

News: Jacob Josefson (undisclosed) is out for Saturday's game, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports.
Analysis: The Devils lost a trio of forwards to injuries Friday, and none of the three -- Jacob Josefson, Adam Henrique, and Patrik Elias -- will play in Saturday's game.

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.

Devils' Josefson Suffering From Illness

News: Jacob Josefson is expected to miss a few days with a virus, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: The Devils placed Jacob Josefson on IR on Wednesday, so the forward will miss at least the next week. He's only suited up for 16 games this season, so his absence shouldn't have too much of an impact outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.

Devils' Place Josefson On IR

News: The Devils placed Jacob Josefson (undisclosed) on IR on Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson has often been a healthy scratch this season, but it's possible that whatever injury is responsible for this IR stint is to blame. The center has just one assist in 16 games so far this season.

Devils' Josefson Struggling To Find Ice Time

News: Jacob Josefson was a healthy scratch Thursday against the Senators.
Analysis: DNPs have been all too common this season for Jacob Josefson, who has only played in one game this season. While the 22-year-old has some potential, it's very telling that he can't even see regular ice time for a Devils squad that is 0-4-3. He could be sent to the AHL when Ryane Clowe is activated from injured reserve.

Devils Re-Sign Josefson

News: Jacob Josefson re-signed with the Devils with a one-year, one-way contract Thursday, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson has played parts of the last three seasons with the Devils as well as spending time with AHL Albany. In 22 games with the Devils last season, he scored a goal and two assists. He will likely be mainly a depth player for the Devils in 2013-14.

Devils Qualify Josefson

News: Jacob Josefson, a restricted free agent, has been issued a qualifying offer by the Devils, according to Europe's Pro Hockey Magazine via the Newark Star-Ledger's Rich Chere.
Analysis: This isn't much of a surprise as the Devils are keen to keep the budding two-way forward in Newark. Jacob Josefson has endured a handful of injuries that have cost him substantial time over the last three seasons, but has never been projected as a player to light up the scoreboard. He's a versatile defensive forward that helps the Devils in all game situations.

Devils' Josefson Scores First

News: In his 20th game of the season, Jacob Josefson scored his first goal Tuesday, a first-period tally in a 3-2 win over Montreal.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson showed a bit more of a scoring touch for AHL Albany this season, scoring 10 goals to go with 15 assists in 38 games, but the 22-year-old still hasn't developed an offensive game that most fantasy owners would find worth noticing.

Devils' Josefson To Return To The Lineup

News: Jacob Josefson will return to the lineup Thursday when the Devils face the Flyers, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson has been a healthy scratch in the Devils' last three games, but will get a chance to crack the lineup with Andrei Loktionov out of the lineup. Josefson has only one assist in 17 games this season as the Devils look to end their 10-game losing streak Thursday.

Devils' Josefson Recalled From AHL

News: Jacob Josefson was recalled from AHL Albany on Friday, according to Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson has one assist on the season with the Devils over 16 games. He will provide some depth on one of the lower lines for the time being.

Devils' Josefson Heads To AHL

News: Jacob Josefson has been returned to AHL Albany, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson should be back in time, but with just one point and two PIMs in 16 games to date, his fantasy impact with the big club has been minimal.

Josefson Limited In Return To Devils

News: Jacob Josefson played 8:57 in Sunday's loss to the Jets, his first game back with the Devils after being sent down to Albany (AHL) last Sunday.
Analysis: Odds are Jacob Josefson will not get too much ice time while up with the big club. He's being deployed in a limited checking role and likely will spend time alternating between being a healthy scratch, fourth-liner or AHL call-up.

Devils' Josefson Recalled From AHL

News: Jacob Josefson was recalled from AHL Albany on Sunday, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Jacob Josefson was demoted last week after putting up just one point (an assist) in 15 games with the Devils this season. He's been successful with Albany this year (9G, 12A in 31 games), and he'll get another chance with Ryan Carter (head) on the mend.

Devils Send Down Josefson

News: Jacob Josefson has been sent down to the AHL, ESPN's Katie Strang reports. According to Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record, Coach Peter DeBoer said he expects Josefson to be back up with the Devils later this season.
Analysis: In 15 games this season, Jacob Josefson has recorded just one point and a minus-8 rating. Playing down in the AHL will give him a better opportunity to improve his game for the time being. Josefson had been seeing limited minutes with a host of different linemates.
