Tomas Jurco isn't letting his dry spell offensively discourage him.

"I'm working on my shot and focusing for finishing, even in practice, just to score," he said. "I just have to get some chances, create some chances for myself in a game, so I can score. It's going to go in. If not this year, maybe I'll score many goals next year. It's not a huge deal." Jurco has two goals and 13 assists in 53 games this season. He saw just 5:14 of ice time against Columbus on Thursday.

Tomas Jurco will be inserted into the Wings lineup Monday night against the Oilers.

Jurco was just a healthy scratch in Sunday's contest with the Bruins but will get back in the lineup Monday in place of Stephen Weiss. The talented 22-year-old winger has picked up just two goals and 13 assists in 51 games played this year, but his future remains bright.

Tomas Jurco will get to play with Tomas Tatar and Pavel Datsyuk in Wednesday's game against the New York Rangers.

Jurco hasn't scored a goal since Nov. 26, but he'll have a good chance to end that drought due to an injury to Darren Helm. "He seems to play his best with Tats; when he's played with him, he seems comfortable," coach Mike Babcock.

Tomas Jurco will be listed as a healthy scratch for Wednesday's showdown with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Teemu Pulkkinen will get his chance in the Wings lineup sending Jurco to the press box Wednesday. The talented winger has registered only two goals and nine assists in 44 games played this year. He has not lived up to the hype quite yet but he is still just 22-years-old and has lots of time to establish himself as a solid NHL player.
Feb 18 - 5:53 PM

Tomas Jurco (back) will rejoin the Red Wings on Thursday.

Look for Jurco to play on Detroit's fourth line. That likely means that Daniel Cleary will go back to being a healthy scratch. Jurco has two goals and 12 points in 37 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 28 - 3:38 PM
