Martin started the breakout that led to the OT-winner for San Jose over the Flyers on Friday, finishing with an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-1 rating. Martin has had a nice run over the last handful of games, putting up three assists in four games. But he's difficult to trust, as he just doesn't contribute offensively very often. He has just a single shot in his last four games.
Martin (lower body) will return to the Sharks' lineup Saturday against the Hurricanes, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Martin has missed San Jose's last three tilts with the lower-body injury, but was able to log a full practice Friday, indicating he would likely be ready to return to action Saturday against Carolina. The 34-year-old defender carries a bit of offensive upside, as he was able to register 20 points (three goals, 17 assists) in 74 games with the Penguins in 2014-15.
Martin (lower body) endured a full practice Friday and now plans to play Saturday against the Hurricanes, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Martin reportedly tweaked his lower body in last Friday's game against the Devils after getting his skate "caught in a rut" on the ice, ultimately forcing him to miss the past three contests. When healthy, Martin has proven capable of posting moderate assist totals from the blue line. Last year, he picked up 20 helpers for the Penguins during the regular season and has one after four games with Team Teal in 2015-16.
As expected, Martin (lower body) is out for Thursday night's game against the Kings, Kevin Kurz CSN Bay Area reports. Details remain vague concerning Martin's injury but his next chance to suit up will be Saturday in a home tilt against Carolina.
Martin did not practice on Wednesday and "is in doubt" for Thursday's game against the Kings, according to CSN's Kevin Kurz. Unfortunately, there's still no word about the severity of Martin's injury and exactly how long he'll be out.
