Alexey Marchenko returns to the Wings' blue line on Thursday against the Kings.

Through the first 102 games of his career, Marchenko has posted just 18 points along with 30 hits. Which unfortunately indicates he doesn't offer much fantasy value.
Jan 5 - 8:37 PM

Alexey Marchenko is projected to be back in the lineup on Thursday night.

Alexey Marchenko (shoulder) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Marchenko returned from his shoulder issue on Dec. 9, but he only played in three games before ending up back on the sidelines. The good news is that the move to put him on the IR would be retroactive to Dec. 13, so he's already almost eligible to be activated off the seven-day list if he's healthy in time. Obviously he's now ruled out for Monday's game though.

Alexey Marchenko (shoulder) took part in some of Wednesday's practice.

"It's feeling better, I can shoot," Marchenko said. "But right now, no contact. I go day-by-day. I hope it's going to feel better tomorrow, and then step-by-step. I need to get back the strength of the shoulder. It's not there, but it's getting better. So get back strength, and we will see how I can feel the pressure, feel I can hit and make contact." He has been sidelined since Nov. 20 with a sprained right AC joint.
