Kings' Martinez To Remain 'Out A While'

News: Coach Darryl Sutter said Alec Martinez (finger) will remain "out a while" and shouldn't be considered day-to-day, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez is traveling with the Kings on their road trip, but everything coach Darryl Sutter has said of late suggests that a return isn't imminent for the defenseman. He still needs to have some stitches removed from his finger, which will probably prevent him from doing much stick-handling until that happens.

Kings' Martinez Likely To Miss Beyond A Week

News: Though Alec Martinez (finger) was able to skate for a second consecutive day, coach Darryl Sutter believes the blueliner will be out longer than the one week GM Dean Lombardi projected him to miss, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times. "We've just got to wait for the wound to heal and that's going to take some time," Sutter said.
Analysis: Alec Martinez suffered the injury last Thursday and appeared to be progressing well, but the possible risk of him infecting the finger by returning to action to quickly will prompt the Kings to take things slow with him. The loss of Martinez has been a tough blow to take for a defensive corps that's already without Slava Voynov due to an indefinite suspension.

Kings' Martinez Skates Again Thursday

News: Alec Martinez (finger) was on the ice again for Thursday's morning skate, but isn't expected to play later in the evening against the Hurricanes, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: General manager Dean Lombardi said a few days earlier that he expects Alec Martinez to miss a week, so the blueliner will probably need an additional day of practice before possibly returning to the lineup Saturday against the Stars.

Kings' Martinez Nearing A Return

News: Alec Martinez (finger) skated before practice Wednesday and could return soon, the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez was expected to miss a week of action which could put him back into the lineup as soon as Thursday if he's able to take part in the morning skate.

Kings' Martinez Out One Week

News: Alec Martinez (finger) is expected to miss one week, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: The news that Alec Martinez needed surgery on his finger was not very encouraging at first, but it sounds like he won't end up missing very much time at all. The blueliner was playing well before suffering the injury, with two goals and five assists in 17 games, including four points in his last three.

Encouraging News For Kings' Martinez

News: Head coach Darryl Sutter provided encouraging details Saturday about Alec Martinez's injury, indicating that Martinez's recent surgery will not keep him out for a long period of time, LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: The nature of the injury had been a mystery, but Sutter said Saturday that Alec Martinez underwent minor surgery on his pinky. "You know what? Everything went well," Sutter said. "It was basically a finger - they had to do some suturing on his finger and clean up his nail a bit. When it heals, then he'll be ready." Sutter didn't provide a timetable for Martinez's expected return, but it doesn't sound like this will be a multi-week absence. This is welcome news for the Kings' depleted blue line.

Kings' Martinez Undergoes Finger Surgery

News: Alec Martinez underwent surgery on his finger Friday, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles News Group reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez's timetable hasn't been delineated at this moment, but it will likely cost him an extended period of time following the procedure. Robyn Regehr is expected to return soon to give the team six healthy defensemen, but if he can't go Saturday, the team will need to make a move to add an extra blueliner. That could prove difficult given the team's current cap situation.

News: Alec Martinez (undisclosed) was not on the ice for Friday's practice, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez left Thursday's game with an undisclosed injury and his status still hasn't been clarified or updated. At this point he should be considered day-to-day heading into Saturday's game against the Ducks.

Kings' Martinez Leaves With Undisclosed Injury

News: Alec Martinez left during the second period of Thursday's game with an undisclosed injury, Curtis Zupke of NHL.com reports.

Martinez Records Three Assists For Kings

News: Alec Martinez had his best game of the season with three assists in a 5-1 win over Vancouver on Saturday.

Kings' Martinez Finds Net For First Goal

News: Alec Martinez registered his first goal of the season in Friday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: A Stanley Cup Finals hero for the Kings after scoring the series-clinching goal against the Rangers in Game 5, Alec Martinez hasn't been able to carry his playoff heroics over to the regular season. Despite holding down a regular role on defense in the team's first 11 games, Martinez has accrued only two points. It's worth staying patient with him in deeper leagues since he's still sitting on a plus-6 rating and has fired off shots with regularity (2.5 per game), suggesting the goals could start to trickle in once he starts enjoying some better luck.

Martinez Sews Up Kings' Cup

News: Alec Martinez scored the Cup-clinching goal in Friday's Game 5 double-overtime win over the Rangers, marking the second-consecutive series in which he scored the series-winning goal.
Analysis: Alec Martinez had a modest 11 goals and 22 points this past regular season but emerged as one of the Kings' steadier defenders during the playoffs with five goals and five assists while seeing regular power-play time on the team's second unit. He's still 26 years old and posted double-digit goals this past season, so he will be worth a look in deeper leagues come draft time. Just don't pay for his playoff performance.

Martinez's Deflected Shot Sends Kings To Finals

News: Alec Martinez found the net for the game-winning and series-clinching goal in Sunday's Game 7 victory over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Alec Martinez's winning tally came at the 5:47 mark in overtime, with his wrister deflecting off Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddy and into the opposing goal to send the Kings to their second Stanley Cup Finals in three seasons. The goal was somewhat fluky, as Martinez said after the game that he didn't even realize the puck went in the net initially, but he'll go down in franchise lore for his Game 7 winner. Martinez finished the series with three total points, including goals in each of the final two games.

Martinez Scores In Kings' Loss

News: Alec Martinez scored one of Los Angeles' three goals in Friday's Game 6 loss to Chicago in the Western Conference finals.
Analysis: Alec Martinez has a solid eight points through 20 games in playoffs and has been seeing some power play time on the second unit. He's a steady player and, along with his teammates, will need to be better defensively.

Kings' Martinez Keeps Producing

News: Alec Martinez assisted on the Kings' only goal during Thursday's 2-1 loss in San Jose.
Analysis: Alec Martinez now has points in three straight games and 14 of his last 17, a spectacular offensive outburst that won't truly rescue his season numbers, but should be drawing the notice of fantasy players in nearly all formats.

Kings' Martinez Heating Up

News: Alec Martinez scored his 10th goal of the year Thursday against Pittsburgh and has now registered a point in each of his last four games.
Analysis: While he's still not seeing heavy minutes on defense, Alec Martinez continues to make an impact offensively both at even strength and on the power play. He's worth a lineup spot in deeper leagues while he continues to light it up.

Kings' Martinez Picking Up The Pace

Scoring Streak Roars On For Kings' Martinez

News: Alec Martinez provided a point for the fourth straight game in Sunday's win over the Oilers.
Analysis: A marginal offensive contributor for the Kings before being sidelined for most of February with an elbow injury, Alec Martinez has come out of the break unusually hot. He's been especially deadly on the power play since his return to action, but with his total ice time remaining below 15 minutes per night, it's difficult to count on the production continuing.

Martinez Producing On Power Play For Kings

News: Alec Martinez scored a power-play goal in Thursday's win over Winnipeg, giving him a point in three straight games -- all of them coming on the man advantage.
Analysis: The crazy thing of it is, Alec Martinez isn't even seeing a whole lot of power-play time -- he skated 2:49 on the advantage Thursday, which is pretty good, but had only seen 48 seconds and then 1:32 of time in the previous two games. Nonetheless, it appears his role is growing even while he skates third-pairing minutes.

Kings' Martinez Back In Action

News: Alec Martinez (elbow) recorded 15:13 TOI in Thursday's victory over the Flames.
Analysis: Alec Martinez sat out the Kings' final six games before the Olympic break and also did not play in Wednesday's game against the Avalanche, but he was able to return to action Thursday night. Martinez has racked up four goals and three assists in 40 games with the Kings this season.

Kings' Martinez Back To Skating

News: Alec Martinez (elbow) skated Friday but still hasn't returned to practice and may not return before the Olympic break, the LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez hopes to be able to practice with the team before the extended break and could slip back into the lineup quickly once that happens given the nature of his injury. It looks like he'll be out for at least another few days, however.

Kings' Martinez To Miss Next Two Games

News: Alec Martinez is dealing with a hyperextended elbow and will not be available during the team's two-game road trip, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: The Kings don't have a projected timetable for Alec Martinez's return, suggesting a trip to IR could beacon for the defenseman, even after an MRI revealed no tear in his elbow. Matt Greene figures to take Martinez's spot in the lineup while he remains out.

Kings' Martinez Spends Time As Winger At Practice

News: Alec Martinez spent some time at left wing during Wednesday's practice, the LA Kings Insider reports. "He's not going to go in ahead of 13 forwards, but I've done it before with a defenseman to see if they can play there," head coach Darryl Sutter said.
Analysis: Alec Martinez has spent most of the season as a healthy scratch when the Kings' defense corps have been at full strength and the Kings are looking for some help at left wing. This isn't something that's going to materialize immediately, but it bears watching whether he continues to see time at the wing during practice.
