If depth is the name of the game in the NHL, then the New Jersey Devils are in trouble. Jacob Josefson underwent surgery on his broken clavicle today and Rich Chere reports that he’s expected to miss three to four months.
Losing Josefson thins out a Devils team that was already very top-heavy. The promising young center joins Travis Zajac on the injured reserve while Martin Brodeur remains day-to-day with his own woes.
(Absolutely not, but the Devils are going to make him earn as much of that $100 million as they can.)
