Golden Knights' Tomas Jurco: Secures one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (hip) signed a one-year, $700,000 pact with Vegas on Saturday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Juro was limited to a mere 12 games last season with Edmonton in which he recorded two helpers, seven shots and four PIM. The 27-year-old winger was significantly more effective in the minors where he garnered seven points in eight contests with AHL Bakersfield. With his new deal being one-way in nature, Jurco should be on the 23-man roster for Opening Night.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Undergoes hip surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco had hip surgery and will aim to return in late March, Mark Spector of reports.

Jurco could be out for the rest of the season, but AHL Bakersfield is hoping he'll be back for the end of the regular season, although the team will need a surge to make the playoffs. The 27-year-old Jurco has struggled to maintain a full-time NHL role since the 2015-16 season. Whether he returns or not, Jurco will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Cut loose by Edmonton
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers placed Jurco on waivers Thursday, Ryan Rishaug of reports.

Josh Archibald (foot) and Joakim Nygard (ribs) are both on the brink of returning to game action, so Edmonton can afford to cut the under-performing Jurco loose at this point. In the likely event that he goes unclaimed, the 26-year-old winger will be assigned to the Oilers' AHL affiliate.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Falling out of favor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco has been healthy scratched in the last three games.

Jurco has managed two assists in 11 games this season, but he's averaged just 9:48 per game. The Slovakian winger will likely get a chance to rejoin the lineup eventually, but either way, he's not worth rostering in fantasy.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Mired on fourth line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco has gone without a point in his last six games.

The 26-year-old winger has added a minus-1 rating and four shots on goal in that span, after opening the year with helpers in consecutive games. Jurco's drop in production coincides with his move to a bottom-six role after initially seeing time on the second line. Jurco has some power-play time on the second unit, but it's not translating on the scoresheet.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Records second helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco supplied an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

Jurco set up James Neal's fourth goal of the contest in the third period. The 26-year-old winger now has an assist in both of his games this season. He's listed on the second line, but he only skated 10:50 in Tuesday's game, and his skillset is likely better suited to a bottom-six role after spending all of last year in the AHL.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Makes season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (undisclosed) was in the lineup Saturday and had an assist in a 6-5 win over the Kings.

Jurco was unable to suit up for Wednesday's opener against Vancouver after undergoing a medical procedure. He was deemed good to go Saturday, however, and skated on Edmonton's third like with Markus Granlund and Gaetan Haas. Jurco is in his first year as an Oiler after spending his first five NHL seasons with Detroit and Chicago. He played the entire 2018-19 season in the AHL.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Returns to lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Kings, Tom Gazzola of reports.

Jurco missed Wednesday's season opener after undergoing a medical procedure. There's not a sense he's being rushed back, but with Alex Chiasson and Josh Archibald both unavailable due to illness, Jurco will make his first NHL appearance since 2017-18. The Slovakian winger had a strong preseason and figures to compete for a bottom-six role this season.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Won't be ready for Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (undisclosed) will have a medical procedure and won't play in Wednesday's game versus the Canucks.

The nature of Jurco's procedure is unclear, so it's tough to pinpoint a timeline for his return. There was a chance Jurco -- who hasn't played in an NHL game since the 2017-18 season -- was going to watch this game from the press box anyway, so his absence shouldn't shake up the fantasy realm. The 26-year-old winger will look to return for Saturday's home game versus the Kings.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Three-point night versus Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco scored twice and added an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Jets.

Jurco got the Oilers on the board in the first period, converting on a pass from James Neal. The duo then provided the helpers on Connor McDavid's tally in the second frame. Jurco capped the performance with the game-winner in the third, a power-play goal. Thursday's three-point effort gave Jurco a total of three goals and two helpers in the preseason, strengthening his case to start the year in the NHL rather than with AHL Bakersfield. However, he'll likely be limited to a bottom-six role if he does stay in the NHL.

Oilers' Tomas Jurco: Latches on with Edmonton
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Oilers on Monday, Sportsnet's Mark Spector reports.

Jurco is right on the borderline of the AHL and NHL, but he'll get an opportunity to make the big club in camp. He has 50 points in 201 career NHL games, and is coming off a campaign in which he recorded 27 points in 31 AHL contests.

Hurricanes' Tomas Jurco: Dealt to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers traded Jurco to the Hurricanes on Monday in exchange for Cliff Pu and future considerations, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Jurco had been playing for Florida's top developmental affiliate, AHL Springfield. There's untapped potential in Jurco, as the Red Wings took him in the second round (35th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, though the Slovakian winger with slick hands has only appeared in 201 NHL games -- including 42 with the Blackhawks -- producing 22 goals and 28 assists over that span. He was under a minor-league deal with Springfield, so an NHL contract could be forthcoming if the Hurricanes want Jurco playing on the big stage.

Tomas Jurco: Secures minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco signed a minor-league contract with AHL Springfield on Thursday, TSN reports.

This is Jurco's first time being associated with the NHL's Panthers' minor-league system. Jurco's last action in the NHL was with the Blackhawks, when he added 10 points over 29 games last season. The second-round pick from 2011 hasn't lived up to his potential in the NHL.

Blackhawks' Tomas Jurco: Heading to Worlds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (illness) will suit up for Slovakia at the 2018 IIHF World Championships, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Jurco missed the Blackhawks' season finale due to an illness, but will get some competitive hockey under his belt at Worlds. The winger played in just 29 games this season, yet still managed to rack up six goals and four helpers. The 24-year-old should take on a bigger role for Chicago heading into the 2018-19 campaign and probably can be counted on for solid mid-range fantasy value.

Blackhawks' Tomas Jurco: Won't dress for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (illness) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's season finale against the Jets, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Jurco will finish the season having totaled just six goals and 10 points in 29 games. The 25-year-old winger will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so it isn't clear if he'll get another shot in Chicago in 2018-19, or if he'll be suiting up for a new club on what will likely be a short-term deal.

Blackhawks' Tomas Jurco: Absent from warmups Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (illness) won't play Friday against the Blues, Scott Powers of The Athletic Chicago reports.

As the result of Jurco's absence, the Blackhawks will be forced to roll with seven defensemen, allowing Blake Hillman into the lineup. Jurco will have one more chance to suit up this season -- Saturday in Winnipeg.

Blackhawks' Tomas Jurco: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco (illness) will be a game-time decision for Friday's matchup with St. Louis, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The Blackhawks don't have any other healthy forwards on their roster, so if Jurco is unable to go, they'll dress seven defensemen against the Blues. The 25-year-old winger's status should be confirmed once Chicago takes the ice for pregame warmups Friday evening.

Blackhawks' Tomas Jurco: Buries two against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco scored two goals through 14:02 of ice time during Thursday's 6-2 win over Winnipeg.

The 25-year-old winger is running out of time to carve out a scoring role at the highest level, and game-to-game inconsistency continues to hinder his fantasy value. The talent is there, and Jurco owns the speed and skating ability coveted in the modern NHL. Additionally, with six goals and nine points through his past 17 games, he's putting together a solid finish to the 2017-18 season.

Blackhawks' Tomas Jurco: Tallies two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco picked up two helpers in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues on Sunday.

Jurco notched three points this weekend, which isn't bad. However, those points give him a mere eight on the season. His minutes have been limited, and the 25-year-old has yet to manage more than 18 points in a year.

Blackhawks' Tomas Jurco: Finds the net
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurco scored a goal on four shots in a 6-3 loss to the Ducks on Sunday.

Jurco has three points in his last five games, not bad; however, he only has four points total in 15 games and has spent time in the AHL this season. The 25-year-old has never managed to carve out a role in the NHL, and while there is still time the odds seem against him at this point.
