Devils have called up centers Jacob Josefson and Brad Mills from Albany.

Josefson could help out on a scoring line should one or both of Adam Henrique or Petr Sykora not play tonight. The former 20th overall pick has an assist over five games.

Lamoriello said Volchenkov and Josefson skated back in NJ today and both are "close" to being ready to play.

Josefson has been limited to only five games this season, registering an assist. It will be interesting to see where he slots into the lineup.

Josefson did not accompany the Devils on their flight to Ottawa this afternoon. He remained in New Jersey to skate and work out on his own. There is a chance that he will join the team on its trip to Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg next week, but that hasn’t been decided, yet.

Josefson has been limited to only five games this season but is expected to draw back in within the next week. It remains to be seen if the 21-year-old will require a conditioning stint in Albany.

Jacob Josefson, who had surgery on broken right clavicle Oct. 22, will see doctor today and could start skating on his own soon.

Josefson was expected to carry some of the load down the middle with Travis Zajac injured but got hurt. The former 20th overall pick scored three goals and 11 points over 33 career NHL games.

Jacob Josefson (fractured right clavicle) is 4-8 weeks away. "It was a pretty significant injury. Not season-ending."

Relatively good news on the injury front for the Devils, who are hoping to get some more help up front. The young center only played five games before getting hurt but probably gets another shot at a scoring line.

Lamoriello said Jacob Josefson (fractured right clavicle) has been cleared to skate, but is still a while away from returning.

When Josefsen returns, he will need to fight for playing time. Expect him to return by the end of January and get a lengthy conditioning stint in the AHL.

Jacob Josefson suffered a broken right clavicle when he slid hard into the end boards with 3:05 left in the first period. Devils coach Pete DeBoer said he doesn’t know yet how long Josefson will be out, “but it’s a pretty significant injury.”

Josefson gets hurt for the second consecutive season at the worst possible time. With Travis Zajac already hurt, the team promoted him to a scoring line role. Look for the team to recall Adam Henrique in the meantime.
