Red Wings hand Jurco a two-year contract
The Detroit Red Wings signed Tomas Jurco to a two-year deal on Friday. The financial terms have not been revealed just yet.
Update: It looks like the deal is for $1.8 million, or $900K per season:
Just got confirmation on Tomas Jurco deal. It's two years at an average salary-cap hit of $900,000.— Chuck Pleiness (@wingsfrontman) July 24, 2015
The 22-year-old suffered from some tough luck this past season.
For one thing, he dealt with injuries, but the bounces really didn’t go his way. Just 3.3 percent of his 92 shots on goal ended up in the net, so a disappointing total of three goals and 18 points in 63 games comes in part thanks to unfortunate breaks.
After all, the 22-year-old managed 15 points in just 36 games in his debut run of 2013-14, and his shooting percent was more-or-less average at 10.4.
Detroit’s cap situation is pretty snug at the moment, so we’ll see how his contract affects the Red Wings once details surface.
