Red Wings forward Tomas Jurco may miss four to six weeks after back surgery, according to reports.

Jurco suffered an injury back home in Slovakia, Ken Holland told MLive's Ansar Khan.

"Don't think he'll be on the ice playing in 4-6 weeks," Holland told MLive. "Not sure he'll be ready to open the season. Won't know for another month down the road."

Jurco registered four goals and two assists last season, playing in 44 games. He disappointed throughout the year, consistently finding himself as a healthy scratch.
