Devils recall Josefson, Mills
By Katie Strang
The Devils have recalled centers Jacob Josefson and Brad Mills from Albany (AHL), the team announced Tuesday morning.
Josefson and Mills' recall comes with the team lacking in depth at the center position. After making his season debut in December, Travis Zajac is back on injured reserve with a sore Achilles. Rookie center Adam Henrique, who missed Saturday's game in Winnipeg, is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Jets. The 21-year-old forward skated laps Monday, but did not practice.
Josefson, who was forced to undergo surgery back in October after suffering a broken clavicle, played two games in Albany Saturday and Monday and may be a possibility for Tuesday.
Mills, who cracked the Devils roster out of training camp, has two goals, five assists and 48 penalty minutes in 18 games with Albany this season. He tallied a goal in Albany's 5-3 win over Adirondack Monday afternoon.
