The Devils signed Jacob Josefson to a one-year contract worth $1.1 million.
Josefson, 25, is a former first round pick (20th overall in 2009), who has struggled to find any offence in his NHL career. The Sweden native has recorded just 17 goals and 33 assists (50 points) in 238 career NHL games (all with the Devils) and he should once again find himself in the Devils’ bottom-6 to begin 2016-17.
Josefson (illness) returned to practice on Monday.
Josefson has missed the last four games with an illness, but returned to practice today. The Devils are back in action on Tuesday and Josefson's availability this morning bodes well for him returning to the lineup tomorrow vs. the Sabres.
