The Detroit Red Wings have recalled defenseman Alexey Marchenko from the Grand Rapids Griffins. He presumably will make his NHL debut Saturday night against the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center (8 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit).

The Red Wings apparently have an injury on defense but general manager Ken Holland declined to reveal who, if anybody, is out.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pound right-handed shooting Marchenko has 16 points (two goals, 14 assists) in 33 games and is tied for the Griffins’ team lead with a plus-15 rating in his first AHL season.
