Jacob Josefson has agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the New Jersey Devils.

Jul 5 - 3:48 PM

Jacob Josefson potted his fourth goal of the season during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Buffalo.

Josefson is now up to 14 points on the season as well, continuing to raise his career high for a season. He has 50 points in 236 games, so we wouldn't rush to pick him up.
Apr 6 - 12:01 AM

Jacob Josefson (upper body) returned to action on Saturday April 2.

Josefson saw 16:06 of action including 4:41 on the power play but did not manage to hit the scoreboard. That's no surprise this season as he has only three goals and 13 points in 55 games. He has no fantasy value especially when you take into account his minus-17 rating.
Apr 3 - 3:10 AM

Jacob Josefson will be sidelined with his upper body injury for at least another 10-14 days.

That won't leave much time to return to action during the regular season unfortunately. With 13 points and 62 hits in 56 games this season, it's been a career year for Josefson however he doesn't warrant a spot on a fantasy roster.
Mar 20 - 3:11 PM

Jacob Josefson (upper body) isn't joining the Devils on their upcoming three-game road trip.

Josefson was hurt on Friday and there's no timetable for his recovery yet. "We're still trying to find out an exact time frame of (how long) he'll be out," Devils coach John Hynes said. "He has some swelling in the injured area, so we're just trying to figure out exactly what it is before we give an update on it." While we also don't know the exact area of his injury, Hynes did say that Josefson's current problem is unrelated to his recent elbow injury.
Mar 9 - 9:45 AM

Jacob Josefson didn't practice on Tuesday because of an upper-body injury.

Mike Sislo has been called up on an emergency basis to replace him on the roster. Josefson should be considered day-to-day for now.
Mar 8 - 2:48 PM

Jacob Josefson returned to action from an illness on Tuesday March 1.

He missed last Friday's match versus the Tampa Bay Lightning due to the ailment. Josefson had a one shot in 14:48 of ice time in his return versus Carolina.
Mar 2 - 2:41 AM

Jacob Josefson (illness) won't play in Friday's game against the Lightning.

The news broke less than 30 minutes before puck drop. The 24-year-old has three goals and 12 points in 51 games this season. Expect Bobby Farnham to take his spot in the lineup.
Feb 26 - 6:35 PM

It appears that Jacob Josefson is healthy enough to play Friday night against the Islanders.

Josefson sits just one point shy of setting a new career high of 12. Though the veteran forward isn't known for his offensive ability, it seems safe to say he'll make it into at least the mid-teens.
Feb 19 - 7:02 PM

Jacob Josefson will be a game-time decision on Friday due to an elbow issue.

Josefson missed Thursday's practice for what was originally thought to be maintenance reasons, but was back on the ice Friday. As it turns out, Josefson actually had a minor procedure done on his elbow on Wednesday and the area is stiff as a result. If he can't play, then the Devils will likely turn to Tuomo Ruutu.
Feb 19 - 11:27 AM

Jacob Josefson is taking part in Friday's optional skate.

That's just an FYI because Josefson skipped Thursday's practice for maintenance reasons. He should be fine for Friday's game.
Feb 19 - 11:19 AM

Jacob Josefson had an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss on Saturday.

Josefson has three goals and 10 points in 42 contests in 2015-16. The 24-year-old has spent parts of six seasons with New Jersey and has never registered more than 11 points in a single season.
Feb 7 - 5:33 AM
