Clearly cleared waivers Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Alexei Marchenko was activated from IR on Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Marchenko is expected to serve as the Wings' seventh defenseman, and thus is a likely candidate to be a healthy scratch for Friday's season opener against the Maple Leafs. The 23-year-old registered 20 points (three goals, 17 assists) in 51 games with AHL Grand Rapids last season.
Jakub Kindl will play Friday against the Maple Leafs, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Kindl has missed a few practices with an eye infection, but has recovered from the ailment and is good to go for the Wings' season opener against Toronto on Friday. He'll likely skate alongside Brendan Smith as part of Detroit's third pairing.
Xavier Ouellet was assigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Ouellet was expected to open the season as the Wings' sixth defenseman, but with Alexey Marchenko and Jakub Kindl both returning from injury Thursday, there was no longer a spot for the 22-year-old in the Wings' crowded defensive corps. Ouellet will likely return to the big club at some point this season, but for now, he'll be suiting up for AHL Grand Rapids for the foreseeable future.
Bojan Bogdanovic (ankle) will miss Thursday's preseason game against the Pistons, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Bogdanovic missed the last two days of practice due to a sore right ankle and didn't make the trip with the Brooklyn Nets to Detroit. His injury isn't considered a significant one, so it's quite likely that he'll be back on the court before the preseason schedule draws to a close.
