Jacob Josefson isn't sure if he has a future with the New Jersey Devils.

Josefson has been limited to 21 games and even an injury to Ryan Carter hasn't been enough to get him back into the lineup. "This is the last year of my contract and I haven't gotten to play much this year, so of course I'm worried," Josefson said. He added that he's still focused on finishing this season. It's worth clarifying that Josefson is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer, so the Devils have a lot of control in deciding whether or not he returns.

Jacob Josefson will start on the left wing on the first line Sunday.

Josefson will be alongside Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr for the outdoor game against the Rangers. The Devils have had a problem finding a winger to play with Jagr and Zajac so it's Josefson's turn to try on Sunday. He was notified before practice on Saturday that he would be moving to the first line. "I haven't played in over a month, so just playing a game is going to be fun for me. And this game a little bit special, too," Josefson said. "They just told me before the practice. It was a good surprise." Josefson has been a healthy scratch of late as he was activated from the injured reserve list on January 16 after missing 12 days with flu-like symptoms. He has one assist in 16 games.
