The Red Wings have recalled Tomas Jurco from Grand Rapids (AHL).
Jurco missed the start of the season with a back injury, but went to Grand Rapids for a two-game conditioning stint on the weekend and he picked up one goal and one assist. With Tyler Bertuzzi going on IR, Jurco has been recalled and could be in the lineup on Tuesday.
Jurco (back) won’t be available until November at the earliest.
Jurco underwent offseason back surgery and will not be ready until November. The 23-year-old had just six points (4G / 2A) in 44 games last season and might find it difficult to find regular playing time on a packed Red Wings’ roster again this season.
The Red Wings have assigned Tomas Jurco to Grand Rapids (AHL) for conditioning.
Jurco has been a healthy scratch since October 31st and has only appeared in four games this season. He has had a tough time cracking the Red Wings’ lineup so he will head to Grand Rapids for a maximum of two weeks.
Jurco has been a healthy scratch for the last four games, but he will get back into the lineup tonight vs. the Hurricanes. Jurco, who will replace Landon Ferraro, has no points and one shot on goal in two games.
Jurco is expected to make his season debut on Tuesday vs. Tampa Bay.
Jurco was a healthy scratch through the first two games of the season, but he is expected to be in the lineup tonight vs. the Lightning. Jurco had three goals and 15 assists (18 points) in 63 games last season—he is expected to replace Landon Ferraro in the lineup.
