DETROIT – The Red Wings today recalled right wing Tomas Jurco from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins. Jurco is expected to be in the lineup today as Detroit hosts Tampa Bay at 5 p.m. (FOX Sports Detroit PLUS/1270 AM).

Jurco, 20, currently leads the Griffins and is tied for seventh in the American Hockey League with 27 points (11-16-27) in 26 games. In 74 games as a first-year pro in 2012-13, Jurco tallied 28 points (14-14-28), half of which (7-7-14) came in the final 22 games of the regular season. The 6-foot-2, 195-lb., forward helped lead the Griffins to their first-ever Calder Cup championship, recording 14 points (8-6-14) in 24 postseason games. His eight goals led all AHL rookies in the playoffs, while tying for sixth on the Griffins overall in scoring. He has 55 points (25-30-55) in 100 career games with Grand Rapids.

A native of Kosice, Slovakia, Jurco also helped the QMJHL’s Saint John Sea Dogs to three straight finals appearances from 2009-12, winning the President’s Cup as league champions in 2011 and 2012 and also capturing the CHL’s Memorial Cup in 2011. Over his three-year major junior career, he recorded 175 points (87-88-175) in 172 regular-season games and 64 points (26-38-64) in 56 postseason contests. Jurco also represented Slovakia at the IIHF World Junior Championships, recording one point (1-0-1) in six games in 2011 and eight points (1-7-8) in 2012.
