Alexey Marchenko will probably be a healthy scratch Thursday.

Coach Jeff Blashill wants to dress seven defenders against Arizona after seven were in the lineup on Monday night. Marchenko scored his first goal of the season in Detroit' loss to the Kings and he logged 14:11 of ice time.
Jan 13 - 3:16 PM

Alexey Marchenko is hopeful to stay in the NHL, but he may be going to the minors when Kyle Quincey is ready to return.

He doesn't have to clear waivers to be sent down and the Red Wings don't plan to carry eight defensemen. Coach Blashill has been impressed with the 24-year-old's steadiness on the back end, but he won't speculate on what decision will be made.
Jan 8 - 7:58 AM

Alexey Marchenko has suited up in 18 consecutive games for the Red Wings.

He has stayed in the lineup while Detroit has rotated game action for Brendan Smith and Jakub Kindl. Marchenko doesn't do much for fantasy hockey, but he has been steady on the back end for the Wings this season. "He wins tons of little stick battles all over the ice that doesn't always show up on the stats sheets," coach Jeff Blashill said.

Alexey Marchenko posted his first point of the season Wednesday night.

He had the primary helper on Pavel Datsyuk's second goal of 2015-16. Marchenko didn't have a point in his previous 14 outings. He has 22 blocks and is averaging 16:03 of ice time per game this season.

Alexey Marchenko is getting a good opportunity with the Red Wings because of injuries.

He is paired with Danny DeKeyser and the combination could stick for a while because Mike Green and Kyle Quincey don't have short-term ailments. Coach Jeff Blashill likes Marchenko's puck-moving skills and the defenseman has something to prove this season. He can become a restricted free agent in the summer and is no longer waiver exempt after this year, so he has to show he can handle being a regular NHL defender.

The Detroit Red Wings have recalled Alexey Marchenko from the minors.

The Wings had to make a move with both Kyle Quincey and Mike Green nursing injuries. Marchenko will play in Saturday's game in Vancouver and that will be three games in three nights for him as he's placed for Grand Rapids in each of the two previous days.
