Injury suffered in tonight’s game between the NJ Devils and San Jose Sharks. From Tom Gulitti on Twitter:
Devils announce Josefson has a broken right clavicle.
No word on how long he’ll be out.
Coincidentally, NHL.com’s Dan Rosen notes that Josefson “tore ligaments in his thumb Oct. 27 at San Jose last season.”
All reports are looking as if Adam Larsson SHOULD be NHL ready come this season. He was playing solid defense during training camp for the Devils, and his work ethic seemed to be ready to make the big jump. He could be a big asset for the Devils on the blue line, who will need to be more consistent this year in order to have a good season. The Devils will be happy with an uneventful season in regards to the media surrounding the team, as long as it means that they are winning.
I would not be surprised if the Devils move Larsson down to Albany for the first month or so if he is not ready to go right from the start. If he gets a little seasoning on him in Albany, it should speed up the process to move him back up to Newark. I do not see him playing for the Swedish Elite League; the Devils want to hold onto this ace in their hand. Devils fans will be hoping for nothing but positives from Larsson, as I feel he could have a lot of qualities which will make him become a true fan favorite, especially since he is so young.
• Yesterday, the Devils trimmed their roster, sending 15 players to Albany of the AHL and four back to their respective junior teams. No surprises in the cuts made, with the most notable names being forwards Adam Henrique and Darcy Zajac. With Jordan Parise likewise cut from New York Rangers camp, plans for the Parise and Zajac brothers to get a place together in Hoboken: ruined.
