This afternoon the Detroit Red Wings have placed Defenseman Alexey Marchenko on waivers. With Detroit’s other defensemen such as Jensen, Ouellet and Sproul who might have easily been claimed, it seems that the Red Wings organization think waiving Marchenko was their best or safest option at this point. If Marchenko does clear waivers he will be sent to Grand Rapids.
The Russian born defenseman has 6 points in 30 games in the 2016/2017 NHL season. In Marchenko’s entire NHL career of 110 games played he has 19 points with 3 goals and 16 assists.
