Josefson will head home on a four-year deal with Djurgarden of the Swedish Hockey League, Sweden's AB Kvallstidningen Expressen reports.
Josefson said, "It's where I want to be" after he logged 64 points (20 goals, 44 assists) through 315 NHL games, predominantly with the Devils but most recently in a Sabres jersey. New Jersey originally selected Josefson in the first round (20th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, but his overall numbers didn't match the lofty draft profile. He also dealt with a lower-body injury at the end of this season.
Josefson (lower body) may opt to return to his native Sweden next season, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Josefson's decision will likely depend on what (if any) offers he receives from NHL clubs, as he will be a free agent July 1. The natural center was used sparingly by Buffalo, where he logged just 39 outings this year. The 27-year-old last played in the Swedish league in 2009-10 and played in 315 NHL games in the eight seasons since.
Josefson is week-to-week due to a lower-body issue.
Josefson's injury will likely have a larger impact on the Sabres than it does on most fantasy rosters. The 27-year-old pivot owns just four points (two goals, two assists) over 39 games this season and hasn't lived up to his 20th-overall billing from the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in his career. He can be considered out indefinitely until his timeline is updated again, and there is a possibility Josefson has already played the last game of his 2017-18 campaign with only a few weeks remaining in the regular season.
Josefson (lower body) will return Thursday evening against the visiting Panthers, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
A versatile forward from Sweden, Josefson returns from a seven-game injury layoff. The 26-year-old hasn't lived up to expectations since the Devils originally called his name with the 20th overall pick in the 2009 draft, but then again, it's difficult for Josefson to do all that much with 11:22 of average ice time. He's added two goals on a career-high 12.5 shooting percentage to supplement another pair of helpers through 19 games this campaign.
Josefson (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
The Sabres will play Thursday against the Blue Jackets before taking their league-mandated five-day break, so Josefson could end up only missing one contest due to his lower-body injury. Either way, the 26-year-old pivot's absence won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only notched two goals and four points in 19 games this campaign.
Josefson (lower body) is day-to-day after exiting Tuesday's game versus Winnipeg early due to injury, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Josefson has already been sidelined twice this season with significant injuries and while this latest one doesn't appear to be serious, fantasy owners will no doubt be disappointed he can't seem to stay on the ice. In his limited outings (19), the center has garnered a pair of goals, two helpers and 20 blocks. Benoit Pouliot figures to slot into the lineup if Josefson is unable to go against the Blue Jackets on Thursday.
Josefson has a lower-body injury and will be re-evaluated Wednesday.
The Sabres next game is Thursday against the Blue Jackets, so updates on Josefson's injury will likely come after Wednesday's morning skate. With just one other healthy forward, Benoit Pouliot, on the roster, don't be surprised if the Sabres call up an AHL player just in case.
Josefson left Tuesday's game against the Jets with an undisclosed injury and won't return, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Josefson has already missed 24 games this season with an ankle injury, and he has just two goals and two assists in the 18 games he has suited up for. In a bottom-six role without power-play minutes, Josefson isn't much of a fantasy threat anyway. More details on Josefson's injury should be available after Tuesday's game, and his next chance to suit up will be Thursday against the Blue Jackets.
Josefson failed to secure a point in his return from a nine-game injury absence in Tuesday's matchup with Boston.
Considering Josefson's minutes were limited (11:06 of ice time), it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that he was missing on the scoresheet. The center did manage to chip in two blocks and a hit versus the Bruins. The 26-year-old has never reached the 15-point mark at any point during his career, so fantasy owners probably shouldn't be banking on an offensive explosion in his return.
Josefson (ankle) will suit up against the Bruins on Tuesday.
Josefson will return to the lineup following a nine-game stint on the sidelines, his second significant absence of the season. As a result, the center has been limited to just nine games so far in which he has tallied one goal and one assist. If he can stay healthy, the Swede could still challenge for the 15-point threshold.
Josefson (ankle) could return to action Tuesday against Boston, with a determination to be made following the game-day skate.
Injuries have limited Josefson to a mere nine outings this season in which he has tallied one goal, one helper and 11 blocked shots. If the center is given the all-clear, he will need to be activated off injured reserve with a corresponding roster move for the team to stay under the 23-man limit.
Josefson (ankle) is aiming to return in the upcoming week and will be re-evaluated Monday.
The veteran pivot has missed the last nine games but was able to fully participate in Sunday's practice, a positive sign for his potential return. Buffalo's next contest is Tuesday against the Bruins, so expect the team to put out another update ahead of puck drop.
Josefson (ankle) skated Monday but remains week-to-week.
Josefson is ahead of schedule, but there's no return date set. The Sabres will be careful not to rush him back, because the last time Josefson returned ahead of schedule, he re-injured his ankle. The veteran forward has two points in nine games this season in his first season with the Sabres.
Josefson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday, per the official NHL media site.
After head coach Phil Housley announced that the Swede would miss four-to-six weeks with his ailment, this transaction was simply a formality. Josefson has been hampered by injuries for most of the year but still notched two points in nine games. Look for him to return around January.
Josefson will be out 4-6 weeks with an ankle injury.
Josefson already missed a big chunk of the season with what was then called a "lower-body injury," and he only managed to play two full games before hurting his ankle. At least the Sabres already have plenty of experience playing without Josefson this season.
Josefson aggravated his existing lower-body injury Saturday against the Canadiens, Brian Koziol of WGR 500 Radio reports.
Josefson was nursing a mystery ailment, but it was discovered Saturday he previously suffered a lower-body injury. In his two games since returning from this injury, he logged 13:05 of ice time per game, scoring one goal while adding one assist and recording a plus-2 rating. His next game will be against the Lightning on Tuesday, and if Josefson is unable to play, either Matt Moulson or Kyle Criscuolo will likely fill the void.
Josefson (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Oilers, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Though he will need to be officially activated from injured reserve prior to Wednesday's contest, all signs point to Josefson returning to action after missing the last 15 games to injury. All the same, the Swedish pivot is nothing more than a bottom-six depth option that doesn't provide much in the way of offense, so he can be safely ignored in the majority of formats.
Josefson (undisclosed) might be available for Wednesday's tilt against the Wild.
Josefson -- who has missed the Sabres' previous 15 outings -- would likely slot into a fourth-line role. If the center is given the all-clear, Buffalo will not need to make any corresponding roster moves as it is already below the 23-man roster limit. Look for an update from the club prior to puck drop.
Josefson (undisclosed) is now considered day-to-day, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Josefson's status was upgraded after being week-to-week a couple of days ago. The versatile forward has appeared in just six games for the Sabres this season. While his return likely won't move the needle much for the struggling Sabres, having a healthy lineup will be a move in the right direction. Josefson will not play Monday against Columbus, which means recent call-up Kyle Criscuolo will draw into the lineup.
Josefson (undisclosed) remains week-to-week, according to head coach Phil Housley, the Olean Times Herald reports.
Signed after seven seasons with the Devils, Josefson has appeared in just six games with the Sabres. He's a versatile bottom-six forward but hasn't shown any significant improvement since breaking into the league, with a career high of 14 points.
