Josefson (upper body) is expected to be available for Thursday's game against Pittsburgh, Andrew Gross of The Record reports. There's no guarantee that Josefson will be slotted into the lineup for Thursday's contest, but the 26-year-old pivot should be available if called upon. Either way, his potential return shouldn't be of much concern to fantasy owners; Josefson has only notched eight points in 35 games this season, so he isn't a desirable option in either season-long or daily formats.
Josefson (upper body) will not draw into Tuesday's lineup for a game against the Flyers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports. That marks 18 consecutive contests missed for Josefson, who remains without a timetable for return. Recent call-ups Ben Thomson and Luke Gazdic will draw into the lineup on New Jersey's fourth line in place of Josefson and Miles Wood (upper body).
Josefson (upper body) was on the ice for morning skate Saturday, Devils play-by-play announcer Matt Loughlin reports. This has to be considered a step in the right direction for Josefson, who hasn't played since sustaining his injury in a March 2 contest against the Habs. However, here's a guy who had only been averaging 12:17 of ice time over 35 games prior to his latest injury, so fantasy owners busy trying to claim the virtual title likely won't notice when Josefson ultimately returns.
Coach John Hynes suggested Wednesday that Josefson (upper body) isn't close to joining the team in practice, Andrew Gross of The Record reports. Josefson has already been sidelined since the beginning of the month, but the Devils are going nowhere and have little reason to rush him back. His absence shouldn't be felt in the majority of fantasy leagues, but expect further updates when or if he does return to practice before the regular season closes out.
Josefson (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game against Winnipeg, Andrew Gross of the Record reports. After missing the last six, Josefson won't play Tuesday and still seems a ways away from coming back, considering he didn't skate in practice Monday. With eight points in 35 games, his fantasy value is low, even when he returns to full strength.
