DETROIT – Tomas Jurco and his girlfriend were bored while he was playing for the Red Wings and living in the Detroit area, he said during a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune.

Jurco was comparing his new hometown, Chicago, with Detroit.

"There's so much stuff to do," Jurco said. "In Detroit, we were so bored, my girlfriend and I, we didn't know what to do. ... There wasn't much to do. Here there's so much stuff to do."

The Red Wings traded the 24-year-old forward to the Blackhawks on Feb. 24. He skated in 159 games for the Red Wings since 2013-14, totaling 39 points (15-24-39) and 46 penalty minutes.

He was drafted by the Red Wings in 2011. So, yeah, he might have been pretty bored since he only played 159 games for the NHL club over a 5-year period.
