Jacob Josefson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After missing all but 28 games in his rookie season two years ago, Josefson had last season cut in half thanks to a broken collarbone followed by a hand injury suffered shortly after he returned. The young Swede will be 22 in March and has good hockey sense to go with a solid two-way game for a young player. He had nine points in 41 games last year and the Devils are eager to see what he can do should he stay healthy for a whole season. Josefson does have some value in keeper leagues, but keep in mind he’s more of a two-way player than a pure scorer.
Josefson will turn 21 in March 2012 and is one of the Devils' brighter prospects. Projected as a steady two-way center, he will fill a variety of roles for New Jersey down the line, but consistent offensive production is still a few years away for the promising pivot. Josefson should not be written off for the approaching season, but offensive expectations should be tempered. He's one of a handful of young, talented Swedes on the team along with fellow prospects Mattias Tedenby and Adam Larsson.
Josefson's one of the Devils more promising prospects. Projected as a solid two-way center, he was the team's top pick in 2009 and has shown good chemistry with Matias Tedenby. Josefson's offensive skills need to develop more before he pops up on draft radar screens, but he's worth remembering in deep keeper leagues.
