Red Wings trade Jurco to Chicago for 3rd-rounder

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

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.
