Jurco (undisclosed) underwent a medical procedure and will not play in the Oilers season opener on Wednesday.

Jurco was gearing up to skate on a line with Connor McDavid in his Oilers debut, but won’t play due to an undisclosed medical procedure. With Jurco not on the ice, Edmonton shuffled their lines and Joakim Nygard took his spot next to Connor McDavid.

The Hurricanes have acquired Tomas Jurco from the Panthers for future considerations.

Jurco was actually traded for Cliff Pu, but you can’t trade an AHL contract for an NHL contract, hence the “future considerations.” Jurco has spent the entire season in the AHL, where he has four goals and six assists (10 points) in 14 games with Springfield. He will report to Charlotte (AHL).

The Blackhawks have recalled Tomas Jurco from Rockford (AHL).

Jurco appeared in 13 games with the Blackhawks last season but has spent all of this season in the AHL so far. The 25-year-old has collected 25 points (13G / 12A) in 36 games with the IceHogs and it looks like he could make his season debut this week.

The Blackhawks have signed Tomas Jurco to a one-year contract extension.

After years of failing to land a permanent in Detroit, Jurco was acquired by the Blackhawks for a third round pick in February and posted just one goal in 13 games. Jurco has been over a point-per-game player at the AHL level in his last three seasons there, but can’t seem to land a solid NHL role.

Jurco is expected to make his season debut on Tuesday vs. Tampa Bay.

Jurco was a healthy scratch through the first two games of the season, but he is expected to be in the lineup tonight vs. the Lightning. Jurco had three goals and 15 assists (18 points) in 63 games last season—he is expected to replace Landon Ferraro in the lineup.
