Martinook assisted on Boyd Gordon's shorthanded goal during Friday's 4-1 win over the Flames. It was his second point in four games, and fifth in the last 10. The 23-year-old is up to 24 total points for the season. He's been streaky this season, going through both point streaks and pointless stretches. Martinook skates on Arizona's fourth line, and shouldn't be looked at as a big fantasy producer. However, he's been useful while going through his hot streaks.
Martinook scored his eighth goal of the year Tuesday, but it was Arizona's lone tally in a 2-1 loss to Tampa. That's points in consecutive games for Martinook, who hadn't previously found the scoresheet since a two-point effort Feb. 4. The depth winger's fantasy contributions remain relatively minimal, though it's worth noting that Martinook is just 23 and has flashed some decent productivity at the AHL level.
Martinook picked up a goal and an assist while playing 19:07 in Thursday's overtime loss to the Blackhawks. The third-line winger finished second among Arizona's forwards in ice time due to his extensive usage on the penalty kill, but Martinook's biggest impact came via his two points at even strength. He has just 19 points in 50 games this season, but the 23-year-old has been producing much better lately with two goals and two assists in his last three games.
Martinook scored his fourth goal of the season and had an assist in Thursday's win over the Blue Jackets. The 23-year-old has been producing in a bottom-six role this season, putting up 10 points in 30 games. While Martinook doesn't see power-play time and has just 38 career NHL games under his belt, the former 40-goal-scorer in the WHL can be of value in very deep leagues.
Martinook (lower body) is expected to play Tuesday against the Devils, the Arizona Republic's Sarah McLellan reports. Martinook skated in his usual spot on the fourth line with Steve Downie and Boyd Gordon at practice Tuesday. He'll go out for warmups and if everything goes accordingly, Martinook will play. Coach Dave Tippett added that Martinook "looks positive". In four games this season, Martinook has one goal and seven shots while averaging 14:17 a game.
