Tomas Jurco would prefer not to start the upcoming season in the minors.
"It would hurt," Jurco said. "Every player wants to play in the NHL. But it's a kind of a business, and if I'm going to start there, I'm going to play my best hockey and hopefully I'll move up here early in the season." He produced eight goals and 15 points in 36 appearances with Detroit last year. Jurco will look to earn a roster spot with the big club out of training camp. Sep 17 - 12:26 PM
