Tomas Jurco (back) isn't expected to be available until November.
It was reported back in August that Jurco had undergone surgery after sustaining an injury while working out. As recently as last week it was stated that he was more than a month away from recovering so we knew that his situation was far from ideal, but this cements the fact that he'll miss a decent chunk of playing time. He had four goals and six points in 44 contests last season. Sep 22 - 12:04 PM

We have an update on Tomas Jurco's recovery from back surgery, and it's not good.

The 24-year-old is still "more than a month away" from returning to his training following minor back surgery, which means he'll start the regular season on the shelf. The youngster has just 15 goals through his first three seasons, so he doesn't provide much fantasy value anyway.

Tomas Jurco had minor back surgery to repair an injury he suffered while working out.

The start of Jurco's season might be in jeopardy. The 23-year-old played 44 games for the Red Wings and five games in the AHL. He'll serve as a depth forward when he returns to full healthy. Jurco won't have any fantasy value.

There is a chance that Tomas Jurco could draw back into the Red Wing lineup for Game 3 Sunday against the Lightning in Detroit.

Jurco has not played in the first two games of the series but he may replace Joakim Andersson in Game 3 as Detroit coach Jeff Blashill is desperate to wake up his team before it is too late. Of course, Teemu Pulkkinen, who was also a healthy scratch for the first two games of the series, might be the one inserted into the lineup instead of Jurco. Stay tuned.

Through 41 games this season Jurco has six points with 43 shots on net and 46 hits. But if you're in a pinch you might as well as this is the night's, and week's, final match. Jurco will skate on the fourth line to the right of Teemu Pulkkinen and Luke Glendening.
