Red Wings' Tomas Jurco: Recalled from conditioning stint
Jurco (back) was activated off LTIR and recalled from a conditioning stint in the minors Monday.
With Tyler Bertuzzi (leg) and Brendan Smith (knee) being placed on injured reserve Monday, Jurco's return could not come at a better time for the Red Wings. The injuries are certainly starting to pile up in Detroit, but getting the highly-touted winger back should at minimum be a stop-gap for the organization and at best could provide an offensive boost. In his limited action this year, the 23-year-old has a goal and an assist in his first two minor league games and will certainly be worth monitoring as he readjusts to the NHL pace of play.
