Alexey Marchenko got his first goal as a member of the Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.

Alexey Marchenko will make his Leafs debut on Thursday night versus the Rangers.

He was claimed off waivers from Detroit nearly three weeks ago and finally gets the chance to play because of an injury to Connor Carrick. "There was nothing I could do but be patient and work hard in practice," Marchenko said. "I've tried to adjust to the team and the city, move into a new place. I've been here for the World Cup and playing against the Marlies for a couple of years." He is projected to be paired with Jake Gardiner.

Alexey Marchenko will have to wait a bit longer to make his Maple Leafs debut as he's listed as a scratch on Saturday versus the Bruins.

Which makes sense. Teams usually like to have a player get in a few practices before jumping into a game. Toronto will play in Brooklyn on Monday and host Dallas on Tuesday, so it's possible Marchenko may not debut until Thursday against St. Louis. Stay tuned.
