      Devils' Jacob Josefson: Tallies another assist in Tuesday's win

      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.

      Devils' Jacob Josefson: Assists on lone goal in Tuesday's loss

      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.

    • Devils' Josefson Pots Game-Winner

      News: Jacob Josefson was the only man to beat either goalie Tuesday in a 2-0 win over Pittsburgh.
      Analysis: His fifth goal of the year came against Penguins backup Thomas Greiss, and the game's only other goal was Adam Henrique's empty-netter. Jacob Josefson now owns a quite modest 10 points in 50 games on the season, which actually ties his career high. At 24 years old, he may have some upside yet, but it may be that he'll need a change of scenery before he realizes it, as New Jersey has not been a very productive place for him.

    • Shorty Plus An Assist For Devils' Josefson

      Analysis: The points bring his season total from three to five in 27 games this year, suggesting that the mini-outburst is more of a one-off performance than an indication of an upward trend for the fifth-year NHLer.

      Analysis: Though Jacob Josefson has resumed practicing with the team and was cleared by GM Lou Lamoriello to return to action, it appears the Devils will just exercise some precaution in holding him out an extra day. Since the team is beginning a back-to-back set Thursday, look for Josefson to check into the lineup to spell another player Friday against the Islanders.
