Martinez picked up a goal and an assist for the Kings in a 6-2 win Tuesday. Martinez had gone cold in January with just two points in 12 games but picked up a pair of points on the powerplay on Tuesday and has 18 points (six goals, 12 assists) on the season.
Martinez loaded up on stats Tuesday in Columbus, posting a goal on a game-high seven shots, an assist, a plus-2 rating, four hits and four blocks en route to an overtime win. After five straight games out of the point column, Martinez got back on the horse in a big way. We've seen plenty of flashes of his talent, but the fact that Martinez has never played a full NHL season has held him back stat-wise. If he can stay healthy, he should easily beat out the 22 points he managed each of the last two years, but Martinez's fantasy value remains limited to deeper formats even so.
Martinez scored the game-winning tally Monday against the Panthers. Martinez got off to a slow start in the point department but has heated up lately, tallying points in three of the past four games. The defenseman isn't typically a threat to light up the scoresheet though, so it's unlikely he'll be able to maintain this stretch.
