Tomas Jurco is expected to be eased into the lineup Tuesday versus Dallas.
"I told him we're going to have lots of patience with him. He is not going to get tons of minutes early," said coach Jeff Blashill. "We're going to work him into it. But I think he is somebody that can help our lineup. He is a guy who can bring energy on the forecheck and he can use his speed to track, but he's got skill to go along with that." Jurco skated on the fourth line during Monday's practice. Nov 29 - 10:46 AM

Tomas Jurco, who missed the entire season to date following back surgery, could make his season debut Tuesday against the Stars.

The Wings could use a healthy Jurco as they are pretty banged up now with injuries to Tyler Bertuzzi, Andreas Athanasiou and Darren Helm. If you are desperate and need a forward Jurco is likely available for Tuesday night's contest.

Tomas Jurco is back with the Red Wings, but won't play Saturday due to back stiffness.

The 22-year-old posted a goal and two points during his two games with AHL Grand Rapids. He has 39 points in 143 games at the NHL level, but just six points over his last 44 games. He's loaded with talent, but until he displays it again we'd pass on Jurco.

Nov 11 - 3:27 PM

The Detroit Red Wings have placed Tomas Jurco (back) on IR.

Jurco is still recovering from surgery on an injury he sustained while working out over the summer, and it doesn't appear that he's made much improvement lately. He has just 39 points in 143 career games with Detroit, so we wouldn't expect much from him when he heals up.
Oct 8 - 8:26 PM

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.

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.
Aug 24 - 5:46 PM

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.

Tomas Jurco will tag in for the sickly Darren Helm in Sunday's match with the Maple Leafs.

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.
