Stenlund will make his NHL debut in Saturday's road game versus the Capitals, Tom Reed of The Athletic reports.

Due to injuries to Markus Hannikainen (elbow) and Brandon Dubinsky (hamstring), Stenlund was called up from AHL Cleveland and will slot into the lineup. The Blue Jackets' second-round pick (58th overall) in 2015, Stenlund has had a serviceable year in the minors, recording nine goals and seven assists in 33 games. According to Tom Gulitti of NHL.com, Stenlund will work on the second line and should get plenty of chances to mark the scoresheet as a result.
