Devils' Brodeur could return this week, Josefson out 3-4 months

Future Hall of Fame goalie Martin Brodeur has won well over 600 NHL regular season games, but none of them have come this season.  Brodeur has been nursing a bruised shoulder since leaving October 13th's victory over the L.A. Kings after the first period making a diving save across the crease.  No surgery was necessary, and Brodeur is accompanying the Devils to Los Angeles as they begin a three-game west coast road trip.  Brodeur could start in L.A. Tuesday night, Phoenix Thursday night or Saturday in Dallas.

Center Jacob Josefson will miss 3-4 months following surgery on a fractured clavicle.  Josefson suffered the injury in Friday's shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks after awkwardly crashing shoulder-first into the boards.  The Devils are already without top center Travis Zajac, so the loss of Josefson is testing the team's depth at center.  Patrik Elias, Dainius Zubrus, rookie Adam Henrique and Brad Mills are currently serving as the team's centers, and Petr Sykora has seen some action as the third line center, with Mattias Tedenby and David Clarkson.
