Andrei Loktionov Called Up by New Jersey Devils

According to Mike Vorunov of The Star-Ledger, the New Jersey Devils have called up Andrei Loktionov and sent Jacob Josefeson to the Albany Devils.  Loktionov was recently acquired from the Los Angeles Kings for a draft pick.  He wanted more opportunity to play center in the NHL, and it looks like he will get that chance with the New Jersey Devils.  What makes this situation all the more interesting is that Loktionov's former and current teams matched up in last season's Stanley Cup.

Josefson, the Devils first round draft pick in 2009, had one assist in 15 games this season with New Jersey.  It's expected that Loktionov will get ice time with the Devils when they match up with the Ottawa Senators in a Monday matinee.
