Kings' Martinez Hopes To Resume Skating This Week

News: The Kings are hopeful that Alec Martinez (concussion) will be able to resume skating at some point later this week, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez, who will miss his 11th straight game Tuesday against the Oilers, is evidently showing some signs of progress in his recovery from concussion-like symptoms, but until he gets back on the ice, a return from IR shouldn't be viewed as imminent. The 27-year-old's absence prompted the Kings to address the blue line at the trade deadline, with the team reeling in Andrej Sekera from the Hurricanes last week.

Kings Place Martinez On IR

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: Alec Martinez has been out of action since Feb. 7, but his spot on the active roster wasn't needed until the Kings acquired Andrej Sekera in a trade with the Hurricanes on Wednesday. Since he has yet to resume practicing with the Kings, a return shouldn't be viewed as forthcoming for Martinez.

Kings' Martinez Doesn't Travel With Team

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) did not make the trip to Santa Clara for Saturday's Stadium Series game against the Sharks, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles News Group reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez still doesn't have a timetable for his return, but has been making progress of late, as he was cleared to resume physical activities on Wednesday. He hasn't practiced since leaving a game on Feb. 7 against the Lightning with a concussion, and will have to work his way through the NHL's concussion protocols before getting back on the ice.

Kings' Martinez Making Progress

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) has been able to work out on an exercise bike of late, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez remains without a timetable for his return, but it's encouraging that he has been cleared to resume physical activities.

Kings' Martinez Still Not Back To Skating

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) still hasn't returned to practice since leaving a game on Feb. 7 against the Lightning, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez is set to miss his third game Saturday as he works his way back through the concussion protocols.

Kings' Martinez Out Monday

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) did not travel with the team to Columbus for Monday's game, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez has been dealing with concussion-like symptoms, but the move to hold him out of Monday's contest could just be precautionary as it's not thought to be anything severe. The team has a couple days off after Columbus, so it's possible he returns for the Kings' next contest against the Flames on Thursday.

Kings' Martinez Dealing With Concussion Symptom

News: Alec Martinez is considered day-to-day due to concussion-like symptoms, though they do not appear to be severe, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez took a hit to the head from the Bolts' Cedric Paquette on Saturday. The issue doesn't seem to be severe, however, so a return Monday may not be out of the question.

Kings' Martinez Leaves Saturday After Taking Hit

News: Alec Martinez is not expected to return to Saturday's game against the Lightning after taking a big hit to his upper-body area from the Bolts' Cedric Paquette, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez retreated to the locker room immediately after taking the blow. The Kings are labeling him as day-to-day for now, but a firmer update on his condition could be available after the game.

Three Points For Kings' Martinez

News: Alec Martinez scored a goal and dished out two assists in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the visiting Predators.
Analysis: That's four goals and 12 assists in 33 games for last year's Stanley Cup hero, who looks set to eclipse his career high of 22 points set last year. Alec Martinez isn't quite as potent as fellow Kings blueliners Drew Doughty (24 points) or Jake Muzzin (20 points), but he's still a solid source of scoring from the back end while not posing a risk in the plus/minus department (plus-13). If he's available on your wire and your league is deep enough, you may want to check him out.

Kings' Martinez Grabs Two Points

News: Alec Martinez added two assists in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Alec Martinez now has double digit points on the season, with three goals to go along with eight assists. The 27-year-old is well on his way to surpassing his career-high 22 points that he got last season.

Kings' Martinez Notches Two Points

News: Alec Martinez collected a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-0 smothering of the Coyotes.
Analysis: In his second game back from a finger ailment and first since signing a six-year contract extension with Los Angeles, Alec Martinez showed why he's worth the money. In addition to the power-play offense, he blocked four shots and finished plus-1. A big offensive breakout may be in the works now that he's healthy.

Kings And Martinez Agree To Extension

News: Alec Martinez has signed a six-year extension, $24 million with the Kings, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez was set to become an unrestricted free agent if the two sides couldn't come to an agreement by July 1. The 27-year-old blue liner posted a career-high 22 points last season and is off to another good start with seven points through 18 games for the defending Cup champs.

Martinez Returns To Lineup For Kings

News: Alec Martinez (finger) logged 19 minutes of ice time in his return to the lineup Tuesday.
Analysis: Alec Martinez recorded two shots on goal in his return and even saw some time on the power play. He'll be paired with Robyn Regehr on the team's second defensive pair while at even strength.

Kings' Martinez (Finger) To Play Tuesday

News: Alec Martinez (finger) will take the ice Tuesday, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: He must have made it through warmups OK, and can be deployed as usual for fantasy purposes.

Kings' Martinez On Ice For Pregame Warmups

News: Alec Martinez (finger) was on the ice for pregame warmups Tuesday and could be in line to play against the Bruins, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: The Kings will probably wait and see how Alec Martinez makes it through the warmup before rendering a decision on his status, but it's clear at this point that he's nearly all the way recovered from the injury that has cost him the previous seven games. Martinez hasn't taken much contact of late while nursing the injury, however, which may prompt the Kings to play it safe and hold him out until Thursday.

Kings' Martinez Nearing Return From Finger Injury

News: Alec Martinez (finger) continues to progress, but his status for Tuesday is uncertain, the Los Angeles Times reports. "He's doing everything better, so meaning that he skated with the team and done all that stuff," Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said. "But everybody can skate with the team. It's being able to shoot and pass, and the next part of it will be the contact part of it."
Analysis: It doesn't sound like Alec Martinez is quite ready to return Tuesday, but could do so Thursday.

Kings' Martinez Remains Sidelined

News: Alec Martinez (finger) will not play in Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles News Group reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez will sit out for the seventh straight game, but he is making progress in his recovery, and is nearing a return.

Kings' Martinez (Finger) Unlikely For Saturday

News: Alec Martinez seems unlikely to play in Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez hasn't appeared in a game since undergoing finger surgery Nov. 14. Although it appears he is nearly there, coach Darryl Sutter indicated he wanted him 100 percent to avoid reopening the wound. If he doesn't play Saturday, Tuesday against the Bruins would be his next opportunity to return.

Kings' Martinez Takes Part In Morning Skate

News: Alec Martinez (finger) took part in Tuesday's morning skate, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez stayed on the ice for extra work following the session, so it does not appear he will play Tuesday. It's not entirely clear when he will be able to play next, as it was reported earlier this week that he would be "out a while;" however, with him skating each of the last two days, it looks like he could return earlier than expected.

Kings' Martinez Practices

News: Alec Martinez (finger) practiced with the team Monday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez was wearing a red non-contact jersey at Monday's practice, so he's probably not that close to returning. It's a good sign that his rehab is progressing, but keep an eye out for him to endure contact at practice before getting back in the lineup.

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.
