The Detroit Red Wings signed 2011 second-round draft pick Tomas Jurco to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Tuesday.
A transfer agreement between the International Ice Hockey Federation and Slovakian Ice Hockey Federation had delayed a contract agreement with the Red Wings.
Jurco is expected to join Detroit's American Hockey League affiliate in Grand Rapids this season.
