Red Wings' GM Ken Holland likes Tomas Jurco's upside.

Jurco and the Wings agreed to a new two-year contract on Friday and Holland likes what the young forward brings to the table. "This year, he wasn't able to produce as much, but I think that has a lot to do with age," said Holland. "We think he's got real good potential, but at the same time, with the addition of Brad Richards and the development of other young forwards, it's going to create good competition at training camp for roster spots, and Tomas Jurco is a player who has to claim a roster spot." The 22-year-old scored just three goals and 18 points in 63 games last season. The Wings will be looking for more production from him in 2015-16.

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.
Mar 9 - 5:40 PM

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.

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.
