Martinook scored the game-winning goal during the third period against Carolina on Friday. The tally snapped a seven-game point drought and improved Martinook to just 11 goals and 22 points through 59 games this season. While his 2016-17 output has him on pace to post career-high numbers, playing for the basement-dwelling Coyotes doesn't help, especially when Martinook isn't even receiving consistent power-play time. You can continue to ignore him in the majority of fantasy settings.
Martinook piled up two goals (one shorthanded) and an assist Thursday in Los Angeles. Both of Martinook's goals came in the third period, as he followed up a shorthanded tally at 14:08 with an empty netter at 18:35. He extended his point streak to three games with this effort while reaching double-digit goals for the first time.
Martinook scored his eight goal of the season during Monday's blowout win over Calgary. The 24-year-old forward is in line to post career-high marks in the goals and points columns and is having a respectable season for the Coyotes. However, he isn't providing enough offense to warrant a roster spot in the majority of seasonal leagues. Additionally, he's averaging just 30 seconds of power-play time per game and beginning 57.7 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone, so it isn't a favorable fantasy situation.
Martinook (undisclosed) is ready to return to the lineup for Thursday night's game against the Canucks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Martinook has missed the last two games because of this mystery ailment and could slot back onto Arizona's third line with Jamie McGinn and Alex Burmistrov, though that could change with Shane Doan also projected to return Thursday. The Coyotes will gladly welcome back the depth that Martinook provides, but his six goals and eight assists on the season aren't likely to turn many heads in the fantasy community.
Martinook (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Canucks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Martinook, who has missed the Yotes last two games, was bogged down in a 12-game goalless streak prior to getting hurt. During the stretch, the winger garnered a lone helper, not exactly the type of numbers that owners are looking for when setting their fantasy lineups.
