Wings recall Marchenko from Grand Rapids

DETROIT –The Wings have recalled defenseman Alexey Marchenko from Grand Rapids.

There must be an injury on the blue line that has prompted this callup, but general manager Ken Holland declined to reveal who, if anybody, is out.

He will be the fifth rookie to make his NHL debut with Detroit this season.

Marchenko, 21, has two goals and 14 assists in 33 games with the Griffins this season. He’s also a plus-15.

It’s his first year playing in North America.

Health has been an issue for Marchenko, who has also played one full season in the Kontinental Hockey League.
