He's at 10 points, 89 blocks and 60 shots on net through 42 contests this year.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 (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 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.
