The Oilers placed Jurco on waivers Thursday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.
Josh Archibald (foot) and Joakim Nygard (ribs) are both on the brink of returning to game action, so Edmonton can afford to cut the under-performing Jurco loose at this point. In the likely event that he goes unclaimed, the 26-year-old winger will be assigned to the Oilers' AHL affiliate.
Jurco has been healthy scratched in the last three games.
Jurco has managed two assists in 11 games this season, but he's averaged just 9:48 per game. The Slovakian winger will likely get a chance to rejoin the lineup eventually, but either way, he's not worth rostering in fantasy.
