Martinez recorded a power-play assist and four blocked shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.
Martinez had the secondary helper on Nicolas Roy's first-period tally. The assist gave Martinez eight points in 10 games since he joined the Golden Knights via trade from the Kings. The 32-year-old blueliner is at 16 points, 76 shots on net, 117 blocks and a minus-4 rating in 51 contests this season, but his recent productivity could translate into a late boost for fantasy owners.
Martinez posted two assists, four shots on goal, four blocked shots and three hits in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Oilers.
Martinez set up tallies by Nick Cousins (on the power play) and Shea Theodore in the third period. The 32-year-old's offense has taken on a new life with six points through four games as a Golden Knight. He's up to 14 points, 98 blocks, 67 shots, and a minus-3 rating in 45 contests this year.
Martinez scored a goal, dished an assist, blocked four shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 6-5 overtime win over the Ducks.
Martinez's arrival in Vegas has been beneficial for team and player alike. The 32-year-old has racked up four points, nine blocks and a plus-5 rating in three appearances with his new team. He's up to 12 points, 94 blocks, 63 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 44 games overall. Sunday also marked the blueliner's 600th career game -- he has 202 points (64 tallies, 138 helpers) over 11 years in the league.
Martinez notched a goal, an assist, four blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
Martinez earned just his second multi-point effort of the season, ending a six-game point drought that marked the end of his time with the Kings. He's at 10 points, 89 blocks and 60 shots on net through 42 contests this year. Martinez figures to work his way into a top-four role eventually in Vegas -- he may be worth a look in deeper formats now that he's away from the Kings' anemic offense.
Martinez was acquired by the Golden Knights from the Kings on Wednesday in exchange for second-round picks in 2020 and 2021, Kings beat writer John Hoven reports.
Prior to sitting out Tuesday's matchup with Winnipeg, Martinez was stuck in a six-game pointless streak and hasn't scored a goal in his last 13 contests. No doubt part of the appeal for Vegas is the fact that Martinez is under contract for one more season at a $4 million cap hit. With Martinez in the fold, Deryk Engelland figures to be the odd man out on the blue line, while Nate Schmidt could lose his spot with the No. 2 power-play unit.
Martinez won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Jets as the Kings work on a trade to send him to Vegas, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
There was a run on defensemen Tuesday, as Brenden Dillon, Marco Scandella and Dylan DeMelo all found new homes. Martinez is one of the few remaining, and McKenzie expects the deal to yield a pair of second-round picks. He also hinted that a deal may already be in place, but it's unlikely to be revealed until Wednesday. The 32-year-old blueliner is signed through next season at a cap hit of $4 million annually.
Martinez picked up a power-play assist and two shots on net in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Ducks.
Martinez is showing modest signs of life on offense with assists in two of his last three games. The 32-year-old is up to eight points, 74 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating through 35 appearances. While he skates on the top pairing for now, his usage is more defensive in nature.
Martinez registered an assist, four blocked shots and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning.
Martinez helped out on a goal by Alex Iafallo in the second period. In 33 games this season, Martinez has seven points, 72 blocks and 45 shots. The 32-year-old's best offensive years seem to be behind him -- he's not much of a factor in fantasy in 2019-20.
Martinez netted a goal on two shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.
The defender's first tally of the season sparked a four-goal rally over a span of 6:16 in the first period. The Kings cruised from there to the victory. For Martinez, he's at six points, 40 shots on goal and 60 blocked shots through 28 appearances after losing 18 games to a wrist injury. It seems to be a lost season for the 32-year-old, who has declined every year since his career-high 39-point effort in 2016-17.
Martinez (wrist) skated 17:58 and blocked two shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Predators.
Martinez missed 18 games with the injury and returned to a third-pairing role. The emergence of young blueliners Sean Walker and Matt Roy may keep Martinez further down the lineup in the near-term. The 32-year-old veteran has only five assists to go with 58 blocks and 37 shots on goal in 25 appearances this season.
Martinez (wrist) is slated to return to the lineup against the Predators on Saturday, Zach Dooley of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Martinez will return to the lineup for the first time since Nov. 25 against the Sharks, a stretch of 18 games on the shelf. The blueliner was bogged down in an 11-game pointless streak prior to getting hurt and is still looking for his first goal of the 2019-20 campaign. At this point, the Michigan native may be hard pressed to reach the 20-point mark.
Martinez (wrist) won't play Tuesday against the Flyers, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.
Martinez practiced for a second straight day Tuesday, but he's still not quite ready to return to game action. The 32-year-old, who has yet to play this season due to a wrist injury, will be reevaluated ahead of Saturday's matchup with Nashville.
Martinez (wrist) practiced in a normal jersey Monday, Kings beat writer John Hoven reports.
Martinez appeared to have no limitations in practice, so a return to the lineup appears imminent. The veteran blueliner has missed the last 17 games after undergoing wrister surgery Nov. 26. Over 24 games where he did suit up this year, Martinez posted five points and blocked 56 shots. He'll need to be activated from IR before returning, and his next chance is Tuesday's game against the Flyers.
Martinez suffered a laceration to his wrist against the Sharks on Monday that required surgery and is considered week-to-week.
Martinez is slated to make a full recovery but will miss time. Given the team's announced timeline, the blueliner will not be in action for the next three games for sure, though it certainly could be longer. A move to injured reserve figures to happen in short order to give the Kings roster flexibility to recall a player from the AHL. In Martinez's absence, Joakim Ryan and Sean Walker should both see an uptick in ice time.
Martinez registered five blocks, two shots and one hit while logging 20:49 of ice time against the Wild on Tuesday.
Martinez still hasn't found the back of the net this year and is now stuck in a five-game pointless streak as well. Last year, the blueliner missed the 20-point mark for the first time since the 2012-13 season. While the Michigan native is still on pace to get back over that threshold, he will need to get back on the scoresheet soon. With just one more year on his contract, at a manageable $4 million cap hit, Martinez could find himself the subject of trade rumors heading into the deadline.
Martinez produced an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Flames.
Martinez's assist came on an Ilya Kovalchuk power-play goal, and he was on the ice for the other three Kings goals as well. He only has three helpers in eight games, but he's added 16 blocked shots as a fairly defense-first blueliner skating on the second pairing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
