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 Notches First Goal Of Season

News: Alec Martinez scored his first goal of the year and added an assist in a 6-0 rout of Montreal on Tuesday.

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.

Martinez Makes Season Debut For Kings

News: Alec Martinez saw his first action of the season Wednesday against Ottawa, logging 18 minutes of ice time after being a healthy scratch in the first three games.
Analysis: Alec Martinez didn't hit the score sheet Wednesday, but did see nearly four minutes of time on the second-unit power play in a game in which the Kings netted three power-play tallies. He's worth a look in deeper formats if he can carve out a regular spot in the lineup and continues to see time with the man advantage.

Kings Re-Sign Martinez

News: Alec Martinez signed a two-year deal with the Kings on Monday.
Analysis: Alec Martinez has struggled to fill the stat sheet at the NHL level since 2010, including just a five-point showing in 27 games last year, but the two-year deal indicates that the Kings still see promise in him. It's not unreasonable, as Martinez posted 46 points in his 75 AHL games from 2009 to 2010.

News: Alec Martinez (upper body) was a full participant in Friday's practice, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Alec Martinez could presumably be inserted back into the lineup as soon as Saturday but that decision figures to be made after the morning skate. He looks like a player at some point next week at the very latest however.

"But I've gone through this before so I kinda know the ropes. It's just a matter of putting the time in and letting it heal."
Analysis: He hasn't resumed contact drills which will be the next hurdle to clear. The original estimate had him missing at least another week and that appears to still be accurate given his progress so far.
