Josefson made a crisp pass to set up Travis Zajac's second-period goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against the Coyotes. Josefson flashed the offensive skill that we've seen very little of in his career, finding Zajac on a two-on-one break to give the Devils a 1-0 lead. He skated 13:52, was a plus-1 and won 5-of-9 faceoffs. Josefson is getting consistent work on special teams with 2:26 on the man advantage and 2:18 on the kill. He's still finding his way in an increased role this season, but showed his potential Tuesday. It's may be wise to add him to your watch list in deeper leagues.
Josefson assisted on the Devils' lone goal, his first point of the season, in Tuesday's loss to Nashville. Josefson got the secondary assist on Kyle Palmieri's power-play goal late in the third period. The former first-round pick has much to prove in his sixth season in New Jersey. Josefson skated 16:28, including 2:05 on the man advantage while finishing minus-1 on the night. There's plenty of opportunity for playing time on the Devils, so if Josefson can continue to produce, he could be worth a pick up in deeper leagues.
