Martinez had two assists in Saturday's win over the Capitals. Martinez has been a steady machine of late, racking up six points in his last four games. The 29-year-old is having a career year with 35 points and has been a valuable asset in most fantasy leagues. He plays on the power play and should continue seeing solid minutes down the stretch, so make sure to use him well.
Martinez scored his eighth goal of the season and chipped in an assist in Saturday's loss to the Canucks. That's points in back-to-back games for Martinez, who logged over 20 minutes of ice time in both contests. The 29-year-old rearguard is having a strong season, posting 32 points in 65 games. Martinez mans the point on the second power-play unit and shoots the puck fairly often, making him valuable in deep leagues. He's never been a huge offensive contributor, but those 32 points are a career high, so he could be an asset down the stretch as the Kings vie to lock down a playoff spot.
Martinez has recorded six assists in his last nine games. His goal production has slowed as he has just one goal since Thanksgiving and hasn't done much damage with the man advantage either with just three assists in the same stretch. He's no longer on the team's top power play unit but sees enough time on the second unit to expect an uptick in production and appears poised to eclipse last year's career-high of 31 points with 25 points (six goals, 19 assists) in 45 games this year.
Martinez grabbed a secondary helper, went plus-2, and racked up five hits in Thursday night's 4-1 win over the Red Wings. What a strong all-around effort from the veteran blueliner, who had struggled with a minus-5 rating over his previous five contests. There certainly is fantasy value in Martinez, as he's picked up 16 points (six goals, 10 assists) and 60 hits in 29 games, while averaging 2:19 on the man advantage.
Martinez scored a goal Wednesday in a 4-2 win over the Islanders. Not only is the rearguard producing at better than a point-per-game pace (13 in 21), but he's found the scoresheet in four straight games. Martinez is actually third on the team in scoring and has outperformed fantasy stud Drew Doughty (10 points) and Jake Muzzin (five points) on the Kings' blue line, so he very much deserves attention in all formats given his impressive production.
