Wings' Jurco Snaps Slump With Two Points

News: Tomas Jurco doubled his season point total Tuesday, scoring a power-play goal (his first marker of the year) and adding an assist in a 5-0 win over the Jackets.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco had gone six straight games without a point and seen his share of time in the press box, which had sparked rumors of a demotion back to AHL Grand Rapids. This performance should help him stave that off for a little while longer at least, though Jurco's development is probably better served at Grand Rapids than it is on the third line in Detroit.

Detroit's Jurco Draws Back In Friday

News: Tomas Jurco will return to the lineup Friday against the Blackhawks, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco had been a healthy scratch for the Red Wings the last three games after supplying just two points in his first 12 contests. He'll clearly need to get going quickly to avoid a demotion to the minors, and his expected placement on the second line Friday next to Pavel Datsyuk could be exactly what he needs in order to jump-start his production.

Wings' Jurco Skates With Pavel Datsyuk Wednesday

News: Tomas Jurco skated on a line with Pavel Datsyuk (groin) during Wednesday's practice, MLive.com reports. "I haven't decided on what we're doing; I would like to (play Jurco)," coach Mike Babcock said regarding his lineup for Friday's game against Chicago. "Contrary to belief, that I took him out because he wasn't playing good, I took him out because I thought we needed a change. I thought his last two games were two of his better games."
Analysis: Tomas Jurco has been a healthy scratch for the team's last three games and there have been murmurs that Wings are considering sending him to AHL Grand Rapids, but he said after Wednesday's practice that he is preparing as if he will play Friday. It remains to be seen, however, if he'll stay on a line with Datsyuk, but if he does, the 21-year-old would quickly return to fantasy relevance.

Wings Considering AHL Stint For Jurco

News: The Red Wings are considering sending Tomas Jurco to AHL Grand Rapids, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: The 21-year-old has been struggling to crack the lineup recently following a 12-game stretch where he's picked up just two assists to begin the season. Red Wings general manager Ken Holland pointed to Tomas Jurco's slow start in the AHL a year ago, which was quickly forgotten when he finished eighth in the league in scoring. Considering his age, Jurco seems more likely to benefit seeing steady minutes in Grand Rapids than serving as an odd-man out in Detroit.

Wings' Jurco A Healthy Scratch Wednesday

News: Tomas Jurco will be a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Rangers, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco will watch from the press box for the first time this season as Dan Cleary takes his place along the wing. Although he's averaging 12 minutes per game, Jurco has just two assists and hasn't connected on any of his 22 shots on goal thus far.

Wings' Jurco Snaps Scoreless Streak

News: Tomas Jurco snapped a four-game scoreless streak with an assist in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco's minutes have been on the decline as of late, as he has only played about 10 minutes the last two games. His line did finally put a goal on the board Saturday, however, so perhaps the youngsters' confidence will start to pick up again.

Wings' Jurco Struggling Early

News: Heading into Saturday's tilt with the Penguins, Tomas Jurco has one assist and no goals in seven games.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco had 15 points in 36 games after coming to the Wings halfway through 2013-14. With the added pressure of actually starting the season in Detroit, Jurco is struggling a bit on the offensive end along with his entire line. Once he gets a break or two, however, Jurco should get back on track.

Detroit's Jurco Scores In Win

News: Tomas Jurco tallied an empty-net marker in a 3-0 preseason victory over the Maple Leafs on Monday.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco had 15 points in 36 games with Detroit last season and appears to be starting right where he left off. He has found a lot of chemistry with the players he grew up in the AHL with, in Riley Sheahan, Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist, and it would be difficult to send any of them back to the AHL at this point.

Tomas Jurco Tallies Hat Trick

News: Tomas Jurco scored three times Tuesday to help the defending AHL champion Griffins win 5-2 and narrow the series gap to 2-1.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco showed both his scoring prowess and grit Monday, finishing the game by mixing it up with a Texas player. Jurco and his fellow Red Wing youngsters willed Detroit into the playoffs this season and it would be a shock not to see Jurco begin 2014-15 in the NHL.

Red Wings Reassign Jurco

News: Tomas Jurco was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco was squeezed out of the lineup with the return of Henrik Zetterberg (back) in Game 4, and will now head to the minors as he looks to claim regular playing time. The rookie had eight goals and seven assists in 36 games with the Red Wings.

Detroit's Jurco Out Of Lineup

News: Tomas Jurco will be a healthy scratch Thursday for Game 4 against the Bruins, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco's young line of Riley Sheahan and Tomas Tatar struggled in Game 3 along with the rest of the Red Wings, and Detroit looks to change their fortunes with Todd Bertuzzi. Jurco has many solid years ahead of him, but will take a seat on the bench for now.

Red Wings' Jurco Finds Twine Wednesday

News: Tomas Jurco cashed in his eighth goal of the season in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco's gotten off to a nice start in April with three goals and four penalty minutes in five games. He probably won't be tabbed for a top-six role during the postseason with the Red Wings starting to get healthier at forward, but he's proven to be a capable contributor on the third line.

Wings' Jurco Scores In Win

News: Tomas Jurco scored the game-tying goal in the third period of a 3-2 win over Boston on Wednesday -- his sixth tally of the season.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco has been one of several Detroit youngsters to step up this year, though he only has totaled 12 points in 30 games. The 21-year-old isn't scoring a ton at this juncture of his career, but has a bright future ahead of him. And hey, he's got a goal and an assist with a plus-4 rating over his last four games.

Wings' Jurco Will Play Thursday

News: Tomas Jurco (ribs) will play Thursday against the Canadiens, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco hasn't suited up since March 11, but will return to the lineup Thursday. The Wings reassigned Mitch Callahan to AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday, so Jurco will take his spot in the lineup. Jurco racked up five goals and five assists in 26 games before getting hurt.

Wings' Jurco Shooting For Thursday Return

News: Tomas Jurco (ribs) practiced Tuesday and hopes to return to the lineup Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco has been an immensely valuable call-up for Detroit this season and it will certainly be glad to see him return for the stretch run. The rookie has 10 points in 26 games.

Red Wings' Jurco Has Broken Rib

News: Tomas Jurco confirmed Thursday that he is suffering from a broken rib, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: With the news that Tomas Jurco is dealing with a fracture than simple soreness, it would seem that the two-week timetable the Red Wings laid out for him would be overly optimistic. It's probably more likely that he could be out closer to a month, but a firmer return date should be etched based on how he progresses during his first week off the ice.

Wings' Jurco Likely Out Two Weeks

News: Tomas Jurco (ribs) is expected to miss at least the next 10-14 days, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: GM Ken Holland said the team will await more test results on Tomas Jurco over the next two weeks before deciding on a course of action. The team's forward depth is already severely depleted with three already on injured reserve and four others out indefinitely.

Wings' Jurco Out For Friday

News: Tomas Jurco (ribs) will not play Friday against the Oilers, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco took a cross-check to the ribs from the Blue jackets' Blake Comeau on Tuesday, and will remain sidelined for Friday's game. The Wings recalled Teemu Pulkkinen from AHL Grand Rapids on Wednesday to take Jurco's place, and Pulkkinen will make his NHL debut Friday.

Red Wings' Jurco Departs With Injury

News: Tomas Jurco left Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco first appeared to be shaken up in the second period after taking a cross-check from Blake Comeau, at first remaining in the game before ultimately exiting. Expect the team to provide official word on his status after assessing his condition more thoroughly following the game.

Two-Point Night For Wings' Jurco

News: Tomas Jurco scored a goal, assisted on another and went plus-2 in Thursday's rout of the Senators.
Analysis: The 21-year-old winger worked well with fellow youngster Tomas Tatar, as they assisted on each other's goals. Tomas Jurco's skating limited minutes right now -- just 10:51 on Thursday, though he's usually on for 13-to-15 minutes -- but he's getting some power-play chances and has sky-high upside. He's clocked in at a point-per-game pace in the AHL this season, though he has just nine points in 21 games.

Wings Recall Jurco

News: The Red Wings recalled Tomas Jurco from AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday, CBS Detroit reports.
Analysis: The winger has three goals and four assists in 19 games so far this season, but there's no guarantee he'll be in the lineup against the Canadiens on Wednesday. He may be sent back down if Johan Franzen (concussion) is ready to be activated, so it's probably best to stay away from him at this point.

Wings' Jurco Has Lone Tally For Slovakia

News: Tomas Jurco scored the lone goal for Slovakia in its surprising 3-1 loss to Slovenia on Saturday.
Analysis: Slovakia has now been outscored by a 10-2 count over two games, but it's through no fault of Tomas Jurco or fellow young Red Wings forward Tomas Tatar, as the two players are responsible for both scores. Jurco was reassigned to the minors in a procedural move when the NHL went on break, but he'll be back with the big club once the Olympics conclude.

Red Wings Reassign Jurco

News: Tomas Jurco was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Monday.
Analysis: It's just a paper move with Tomas Jurco set to play for Slovakia in the Winter Olympics. Jurco has seven points in 19 games with the Red Wings this season and figures to return to the parent club after the break.

Wings' Jurco Notches Assist In Loss

News: Tomas Jurco picked up an assist Sunday but Detroit fell to Florida 5-4 via shootout.
Analysis: Tomas Jurco has played well in fill-in duty this season, with five points in 13 games. The 21-year-old's time may be numbered in the NHL for now, as injured Red Wings are starting to retun, but he is certainly making his case for the future.

Red Wings Recall Jurco

News: Tomas Jurco was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
Analysis: With several of the team's forwards not recovering from injuries as quickly as anticipated, Tomas Jurco will rejoin the Red Wings, most likely on a temporary basis. He showed some potential during his seven-game trial in December, scoring two goals and adding an assist.
