Kings' Martinez Gets Back In Swing Of Things

News: Alec Martinez handed out two assists in just 15:09 of ice time Thursday against the Islanders.
Analysis: The blueliner's third game back went markedly better than his first two, scoresheet-wise, and it kind of seems like Alec Martinez's presence has boosted the entire Kings team, as Los Angeles has rattled off three straight road wins since the 27-year-old returned to the lineup.

Martinez Returns From Concussion In Kings Win

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) logged 16:23 of ice time in his first game since Feb. 7.
Analysis: Alec Martinez registered three shots on goal but didn't find the score sheet.

Kings' Martinez Returns To Lineup

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) will return to action Monday against New Jersey, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: With Alec Martinez -- who has 17 points in 45 games -- back in business, Brayden McNabb and Jamie McBain will be the team's blueliner scratches Monday.

Kings' Martinez To Remain Out Saturday

News: Alec Martinez (concussion), who was activated from injured reserve Friday, will not play Saturday against the Canucks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Though Alec Martinez's concussion symptoms seem to be behind him, coach Darryl Sutter was reluctant to break up his top three defensive pairings in advance of Saturday's critical Western Conference matchup. While Martinez figures to get back in the lineup during the team's road trip that begins Monday, he may struggle to find a regular role with the Kings over the remainder of the season. During Martinez's absence, the Kings acquired Andrej Sekera from the Hurricanes to restore some depth on the blue line, which now leaves the team with an influx of players at the position.

Kings Activate Martinez From IR

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Though Alec Martinez appears to be over the concussion-like symptoms that have kept him out of the Kings' previous 18 games, it doesn't necessarily mean that he'll play Saturday against the Canucks. Martinez practiced Friday with the team as part of a fourth defensive pairing with Jamie McBain, who has served as a healthy scratch over the Kings' past several contests. With the Kings not holding a morning skate Saturday due to the afternoon start time of the game, official word on Martinez's status likely won't come until warmups. Nonetheless, his pending return should bolster the Kings' chances of claiming one of the final two wild-card spots out West. The blueliner has accumulated five goals and 17 points in 45 games, while his 79 shots on goal have already tied his career-best mark from a season ago.

Kings' Martinez Likely Out Wednesday

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) is not expected to play Wednesday against the Ducks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Per the report, a possible return Saturday against Vancouver or on Monday against New Jersey remain more plausible scenarios for the looming return to action of Alec Martinez.

Kings' Martinez Takes Part In Battle Drills

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) participated in battle drills during Tuesday's practice, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: With Alec Martinez now cleared to take contact, he might be only one or two practices away from rejoining the Kings' lineup. The blueliner has been out since Feb. 7 with concussion-like symptoms and has posted 17 points in 45 games to date this season.

Kings' Martinez Moves Toward Return

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) is getting closer to a return, but there still isn't a firm timetable, LA Kings Insider reports. "I have no idea if he's a week or two weeks," head coach Darryl Sutter said. "I really have no idea. Like those things, I don't even ask."
Analysis: The Kings don't play again until Saturday, and there's a distant chance he's able to suit up then, but he'll need to be a full participant at practice first.

Kings' Martinez Skates With Team

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) skated with the team at Saturday's morning session, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez had previously been limited to working out on his own as he worked his way back from the concussion, so his presence with the rest of the team Saturday represents a significant step. The blueliner, who has been out since Feb. 7, suggested that getting conditioned is the bigger concern than the concussion at this juncture. Martinez may only need a few more practices before getting activated from IR.

Kings' Martinez Close To Practicing

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) is close to practicing with the team, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: While there isn't any concrete timetable for Alec Martinez's return, the fact that he's reportedly close to practicing with the team is certainly encouraging news. He's been sidelined with a concussion since Feb. 9, so he'll likely need to log several full practices before returning to the Kings lineup.

Kings' Martinez Not Close To Practicing

News: Assistant GM Rob Blake said Saturday that Alec Martinez (concussion) isn't close to joining the team for practices, NHL.com's Curtis Zupke reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez has been back on the ice for the last two days, but has been limited to skating on his own while he remains under the concussion protocol. There is no timetable for his return.

Kings' Martinez Back On Ice Friday

News: Alec Martinez (concussion) was back on the ice for a workout Friday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez was limited to passing around the puck with fellow injured teammate Tanner Pearson, but it at least serves as a sign that he's made some progress in his recovery. The defenseman is probably at least several more days away from being activated from IR.

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.

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 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.
