Kings' Alec Martinez: Two helpers in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez picked up a pair of assists in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Ducks.

One of his helpers came on the man advantage. For the year, Martinez has four goals and 14 assists in 52 contests. The 18 points are his lowest mark since he had five points in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign, having posted five straight seasons with at least 22 points. He's battled injuries multiple times this year, hampering his ability to find a rhythm for production.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (illness) is expected to play Thursday against Nashville, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.

Martinez didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing Thursday's tilt. The 31-year-old American will slot into his usual role, skating on the Kings' second pairing and second power-play unit against the Predators.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Wait-and-see approach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (illness) is questionable to play Thursday versus Nashville, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Head coach Willie Desjardins was optimistic about Martinez's chances, going so far to say that the blueliner would "probably play [Thursday]". Expect the Kings to further update this situation prior to puck drop, and if Martinez ultimately can't go, look for either Sean Walker or Kurtis MacDermid to replace him in LA's lineup.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) skated 21:16 in a 3-1 loss to the Canadiens on Tuesday.

He had one blocked shot in the contest. Martinez averaged 21:00 of ice time entering the night, so it appears he's back at full strength. He has 15 points in 44 appearances and has reached the 100 blocks milestone, but the veteran defender likely won't move the needle in most fantasy formats.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.

Martinez has been sidelined since Feb. 16 due to an upper-body injury, but he was a full participant at Monday's practice, which was the first sign that he might be an option for Tuesday's contest. The 31-year-old is expected to skate on the Kings' second pairing and second power-play unit against the Canadiens.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Questionable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) is questionable for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Martinez ditched the non-contact sweater for Monday's practice session, which is a good indication he is trending in the right direction. If cleared to play versus the Habs, the blueliner should get back to logging over 20 minutes per game. The Michigan native just needs five more points to reach the 20-point mark for a sixth consecutive season.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Upgraded to full contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) practiced in a regular jersey Monday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Martinez upgraded to full-contact garb after previously sporting a non-contact jersey. If he responds well to this contact session, there's a legitimate chance that he'll be out there Tuesday against Montreal. Check back before puck drop for an update on Martinez's status.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Non-contact participant Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) wore a red no-contact jersey during practice Friday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Considering Martinez has yet to be cleared for contact, it's safe to rule out the blueliner as an option for Saturday's contest against the Blackhawks. The team stated last Saturday that it hoped to have him back within a week, but Martinez will need to graduate to full participation before he will be available to return.

Kings' Alec Martinez: May return soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) will hopefully be able to return within a week, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

If this holds true, that would mean Martinez returning by Saturday, when the Kings host the Blackhawks. However, if that happens, the 31-year-old will miss at least three more games. At the very least, the Michigan native seems likely to miss Monday and Tuesday's contests.

February 21, 2019 11:04 AM
Kings' Alec Martinez: Absence likely to continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) will not accompany the team on their upcoming four-game road trip, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Martinez hasn't seen the ice since Feb. 14, and his absence is likely to extend. The 31-year-old is unlikely to join the team in the middle of its road trip, which would suggest Martinez is in jeopardy of missing the next four games. Matt Roy is likely to keep filling in on the blue line for the Kings with Martinez out.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Dealing with upper-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez missed Saturday's clash with Boston due to an upper-body issue and will be out of action again versus Washington on Monday, Dan Greenspan of NHL.com reports.

Martinez was on a roll prior to getting hurt, as he notched four points in his previous three outings, along with five hits, seven blocks and five shots on goal. The blueliner's spot in the lineup should continue to be filled by Matt Roy, who made his NHL debut Saturday.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Picks up two points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez scored the goal that ultimately earned his team a point in a 4-3 shootout loss to Vancouver on Thursday. He also tacked on an assist.

Martinez has stepped up his play as of late with four points in his past three games, and he's playing like someone who wants to make himself attractive to a playoff contender. Obviously, that's out of his hands, but if the Kings pull the trigger on a move, he'd almost assuredly see a value boost because the only offense worse than Los Angeles' is Anaheim's.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Intriguing trade option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is viewed as a potential trade chip for the Kings ahead of the Feb. 25 deadline, Lisa Dillman and Josh Cooper of The Athletic report.

As suggested in the report, Martinez is an interesting trade candidate for Los Angeles, and there seems to be a lot for the team to consider. Looking at the big picture, he's a two-time Stanley Cup champion (2012, 2014) priced at $4 million for the next two and a half seasons. Cooper also reminds us that Martinez is a consummate professional and leader, so the Kings may want to keep him around for the rebuild. Finally, from a fantasy perspective, we're talking about a defenseman who's provided three goals, eight assists and a plus-2 rating through 36 games this season. Consider acquiring him now in case he ends up getting dealt to an offensively laden squad.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Will return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Senators, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Martinez has been sidelined since early December due to an upper-body issue, but it appears he's good to go after logging full participation at morning skate again Thursday. He's slated to pair with Jake Muzzin in his return to the lineup, though it's unclear if Martinez will rejoin the power play. If not, Martinez's prospects, from a fantasy perspective, dim slightly moving forward.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Could return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Willie Desjardins believes "there's a good chance" Martinez (upper body) will be ready to return Thursday against the Senators, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Martinez has been sidelined since Dec. 8 due to an upper-body injury, but he was finally able to return to practice Saturday, which was the first sign that he may be on the verge of drawing back into the lineup. Another update on the 31-year-old blueliner's status should surface following Thursday's morning skate, but for now, he can be considered probable for the evening's matchup with Ottawa.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Still sitting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) won't suit up Monday against the Sharks, as Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports that the team is not expected to make any lineup changes for the contest.

Martinez returned to practice over the weekend, but he'll have to wait until at least Thursday against Ottawa to make his return to game action. The veteran blueliner needs to be removed from injured reserve prior to his activation.

Kings' Alec Martinez: Practices with return in sight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) was at practice Saturday, but it doesn't appear that he'll play against the Oilers in the evening's contest, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Martinez reportedly is drawing closer to a return, having worked with Paul LaDue in the latest session. The former, a blueliner in his ninth season, remains on injured reserve for the time being.

December 22, 2018 03:36 PM
Kings' Alec Martinez: Remains on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) is still listed on injured reserve ahead of Saturday's matchup with San Jose, per the NHL's official media site.

Martinez is still being evaluated for an upper-body injury, and the Kings have yet to release any details regarding a potential timeline for his return to action. Either way, the veteran blueliner will need to be activated from injured reserve before drawing back into the lineup, so another update on his status should surface once that occurs.

December 19, 2018 02:44 AM
Kings' Alec Martinez: Requires another look
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) will be reassessed in 4-5 days, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

The news effectively rules Martinez out for Tuesday's matchup with the Jets and probably means he is questionable at best Saturday and Sunday versus the Sharks and Knights. With the 31-year-old unavailable -- along with DIon Phaneuf (upper body) -- Sean Walker figures to continue filling in on the blue line.

December 12, 2018 03:40 PM
Kings' Alec Martinez: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Considering Martinez has already been ruled out until at least Dec. 18 by not joining the team on the road, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him placed on IR. With the additional roster spot -- and Dion Phaneuf (upper body) also dealing with an injury -- the club promoted Daniel Brickley from the minors. Prior to getting hurt, Martinez racked up three points in his previous four outings, including bringing a 15-game goal drought to an end.
