July 2013- The Devils have re-signed Josefson to a one-year, one-way contract. This will be Josefson’s fourth attempt to crack the Devils roster full-time. The previous three attempts have all been underwhelming efforts. This contract is a do-or-die for him, failure to deliver could see him buried on the roster in Albany or looking for greener pastures elsewhere this time next year. – Rex Doty


March 2013 – Josefson cannot stay healthy and it has seriously stunted his development. Now that the Devils have acquired Loktionov, Josefson has freefallen down the depth chart. – Dobber


May 2012 – Josefson, an elite scorer at the international level growing up, has a strong two-way game and thinks the game at an elite level. There is concern about his ability to stay healthy with a rash of recent injuries but if the Devils lose a scorer in the off-season (Parise?), Josefson has the potential to produce. Josefson is smart enough to be a full-time NHLer. – Ryan Goddard



Fantasy Outlook: B-


Josefson is more of a playmaker than a finisher and the one knock on Josefson is his need to shoot more. He thinks the game at such a high level it’s only a matter of time before he takes a step forward offensively and when he does he will be an assist-heavy player.
