Josefson sent down, Loktionov recalled

The Devils sent center Jacob Josefson down to the American Hockey League and recalled Andrei Loktionov, the team announced.

Josefson has been limited to a mere point (an assist) in 15 games this season, prompting the Devils to reassign him to Albany in hopes that he regains his confidence in the minors.

Now they'll get a look at Loktionov, acquired from the Kings earlier this month. He was recalled last week but then sent down to accommodate Alexei Ponikarovsky's arrival.

Loktionov, 22, has seven goals and 15 assists in 37 games for the AHL's Manchester Monarchs this season.
