There are some hockey players who give you extra special feelings. You know the ones I'm talking about. The butterflies in your stomach, goosebumps from excitement, squeals of joy, giggles of glee, the kind of player who makes you excited every time he's on the ice because you know he can do anything. Pavel Datsyuk is probably the first player we all think of from that description, but there's another young player who gives me very similar feelings. Last season, Tomas Jurco made his NHL debut at only 20 years old, showing that he's a star in the making. Whether in Grand Rapids or Detroit, Tomas Jurco has the skill, talent, drive, and passion rise to the top. I absolutely love watching Jurco play, and I could watch his beautiful goals over and over. In fact, that's just what I'm going to do. Won't you join me?
I made a video of all of Jurco's goals with the Griffins last season, and Alex Wood has all his NHL goals compiled into one lovely video. If you don't already subscribe to Alex on youtube, here's a link to his channel, he makes incredible Wings videos.
All of Tomas Jurco's 2013-2014 goals, and here... we... go!
In 37 regular season games with the Griffins, Jurco has 13 goals and 19 assists for a point per game pace. After the Wings were eliminated from the playoffs, Jurco went back to the Griffins and played in 8 playoff games, scoring 5 goals and 2 assists.
In his rookie season with the Wings, Jurco had 8 goals and 7 assists in 36 regular season games and no points in 3 playoff games. I can't wait to watch more of him with the Wings.
Sweet Swirling Onion Rings! Those goals are just beautiful. I love how he knocks Gardner on his butt, skates right past him, spin-o-rama and BOOM! Bob's your uncle. I also really miss hearing Ken Daniels call Wings games. Jurco has "Power Forward" written all over him, and he's just beginning. Which of Jurco's goals is your favorite so far?
