Jacob Josefson isn't sure if he has a future with the New Jersey Devils.

Josefson has been limited to 21 games and even an injury to Ryan Carter hasn't been enough to get him back into the lineup. "This is the last year of my contract and I haven't gotten to play much this year, so of course I'm worried," Josefson said. He added that he's still focused on finishing this season. It's worth clarifying that Josefson is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer, so the Devils have a lot of control in deciding whether or not he returns.
