Red Wings trade Jurco to Chicago for 3rd-rounder
The Detroit Red Wings have acquired a third-round pick in this year ’s draft in exchange for littleused forward Tomas Jurco. “Things haven’t worked out here,” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press. “He and his agent let it be known he’d like to be elsewhere. He is restricted this summer and probably wouldn’t have stayed, so we did the deal.” The Wings are 10 points out of the playoff picture, and are moving players for future assets. Holland would not talk specifics, but said he has talked to numerous colleagues this week, and will talk more before Wednesday’s trade deadline. One big name in play is Thomas Vanek, who will appeal as a rental player to a team eyeing a Stanley Cup run.
