Sharks, Jones Reach Agreement On Three-Year Deal

News: Martin Jones signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Sharks on Tuesday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones has been a member of three different teams within less than a week, but in agreeing to the new contract, it appears he's finally settled on a permanent home. At a $3 million cap hit, Jones will be almost twice as expensive as holdover Alex Stalock ($1.6 million), but both goalies should have a legitimate chance at fighting for the No. 1 job. With the Sharks bringing in a new coach in Peter DeBoer, Stalock doesn't figure to be shown any loyalty as the incumbent, which should allow for the better of the two goalies in training camp to rise to the top of the depth chart to begin the season.

Bruins Deal Jones To San Jose

News: Martin Jones was traded to the Sharks on Tuesday in exchange for a 2016 first-round pick and prospect Sean Kuraly, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones, who spent last season with the Kings, was acquired by the Bruins just four days ago. He'll now head back to the West Coast, and should be given the chance to push Alex Stalock for the top goalie job in San Jose. Jones appeared in 15 games as the backup to Jonathan Quick with the Kings in 2014-15, going 4-5-2 with a 2.25 GAA and .906 save percentage. The 25-year-old has been even more dominant at times than those numbers suggest, as he's already compiled seven shutouts in 34 career matches.

Bruins Acquire Jones From Kings

News: The Bruins traded Milan Lucic to the Kings on Friday in exchange for Martin Jones, the 13th overall pick in the NHL Draft, and prospect Colin Miller, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The deal frees up needed salary cap space for the Bruins, who for now hold the No. 13, 14, and 15 picks in this year's draft. Moreover, adding Martin Jones gives the team an experienced backup option behind top goalie Tuukka Rask, a scenario which allows the organization to exercise patience with the promising Malcolm Subban.

Oilers Stun Jones, Kings

News: Martin Jones made only 18 saves on 21 shots Tuesday in a 4-2 loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: This is a brutal loss for Martin Jones and the Kings, coming as it did against the basement-dwelling Oilers, and it's a harsh blow to their playoff hopes. They've got to catch either the Flames or the Jets over the season's final two games, and they're going to need help to do it. More than likely, it'll be Jonathan Quick back in net for those contests.

Kings Roll With Jones On Tuesday

News: Martin Jones led the Kings on the ice for warmups and will receive the start in goal Tuesday against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: With the Kings' playoff spot on the bubble, there was some belief coach Darryl Sutter may ride Jonathan Quick the rest of the way. However, with the Kings on the losing end of a grueling shootout loss to the Canucks a night earlier, Martin Jones will get a chance to start for the first time since Feb. 27, and just the second time in 36 games. Since the Oilers possess one of the league's worst records, Jones probably makes for a dependable starting option for both the Kings and those looking for streaming options in spite of the lack of work he's received of late. Jones carries a 4-4-2 record, 2.18 GAA and .909 save percentage into Tuesday's contest.

Kings' Jones Makes 9 Saves In Relief Duty

News: Martin Jones stopped nine of 10 shots in relief of Jonathan Quick in Saturday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: A decent outing for Martin Jones, who hasn't started a game since February 27th. He won't get credit for the loss, so his record stays at 4-4-2 with a .909 save percentage and 2.18 GAA. Quick has started 14 straight games, so unless Jones is making another relief appearance, don't expect to see the 25-year-old in the crease as Los Angeles makes one final push for a playoff spot.

Kings' Jones Perfect In Relief

News: Martin Jones saved all seven shots he faced after entering in the third period of Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Martin Jones doesn't get many opportunities in net backing up Jonathan Quick, has now appeared in consecutive games after not seeing the ice for over a month before Friday's start. The 25-year-old was solid in relief, but quick will still see the large majority of starts as the Kings make their push toward the playoffs.

Kings' Jones Coughs Up Lead Late In Rare Start

News: Martin Jones let in three goals on 31 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Ducks on Friday. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Analysis: Making just his 12th appearance of the season and first since Jan. 12, Martin Jones squandered a 2-0 lead in the third period, giving up all three goals in less than seven minutes. His late-game implosion only further distances himself from starter Jonathan Quick, who -- with the Kings fighting for a playoff spot -- is a lock to start almost every one of the Kings' games going forward.

Kings' Jones Starting Friday

News: Martin Jones will start Friday's game against the Ducks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones is set for his first appearance since Jan. 12, allowing Jonathan Quick to get some rare rest in the second game of a back-to-back. We probably won't see much of Jones down the stretch, with Los Angeles only having two more back-to-backs (Mar. 23-24, Apr. 6-7) this season.

Jones Unlikely To See Much Action For Kings

News: Martin Jones, who hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 12, may not see much action down the stretch, as the Kings have just three back-to-back scenarios over their final 24 games.
Analysis: Martin Jones has played fairly well when asked to spell starter Jonathan Quick, posting three shutouts and four wins in his eight starts, but doesn't figure to see much action as the Kings look to ride Quick to a playoff spot.

Kings Activate Jones (Back) From IR

News: Martin Jones (back spasms) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: The back issues had kept Martin Jones unavailable for the Kings' previous three games, but with a little extra time to recover while the team breaks for the NHL All-Star Game, it appears the goalie will be ready to go for the start of the second half. J.F. Berube, who had backed up Jonathan Quick in lieu of Jones during his three-game absence, was sent down to AHL Manchester on Thursday in a corresponding move.

Martin Jones

Kings Place Jones On IR

News: They Kings have placed Martin Jones (back spasms) on IR, retroactive to Jan. 14, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: In a corresponding move, the Kings activated defenseman Robyn Regehr from IR, with J.F. Berube on hand to back up Jonathan Quick as long as Martin Jones is sidelined.

Kings' Jones Feeling Ill Saturday Morning

News: Martin Jones was feeling ill at Saturday's morning session but is still expected to be available as the backup goalie for the Kings' game later in the evening versus the Ducks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: The Kings don't seem to think Martin Jones' illness is severe enough to warrant recalling an extra goalie from the minors, but it will nonetheless take him out of the running for Saturday's start. Jonathan Quick left the ice first at morning skate and is slated to man the net.

Kings' Jones Kept Out By Back Spasms

News: Martin Jones is dealing with back spasms, Los Angeles News Group writer Elliott Teaford reports.
Analysis: The injury isn't expected to be serious, so Martin Jones appears to be in day-to-day territory for now. It's not clear what his status is for Los Angeles' game against the Flames on Monday.

Kings' Jones Has Injury, Could Be Out Until Break

News: Updating a previous report, Martin Jones is nursing an injury of some sort, and looks like he might not be available over the next few games, according to Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider.
Analysis: The details on Martin Jones' situation are extremely foggy, as it was believed that the netminder was just feeling a little ill Saturday morning. The expectation was that he would be ready to back up Jonathan Quick for the game later in the evening against Anaheim, but that no longer appears to be the case. The Kings haven't made a move quite yet to recall a goalie from the minors, but J.F. Berube looks like the top candidate to get the promotion from AHL Manchester.

Kings' Jones Yanked In Loss

News: Martin Jones was awful Wednesday, giving up three goals on 13 shots and was pulled in a 5-3 loss to the Devils.
Analysis: He was yanked midway through the second and was surprisingly sent back out by coach Darryl Sutter to start the third. Jonathan Quick didn't fare much better in relief, coughing up two goals on seven shots in only 10:40, so perhaps that played a factor. At any rate, Martin Jones is now 4-3-2 with a 2.20 GAA and .908 save percentage in 11 appearances this year; he isn't likely to see many more back-to-back starts, as Quick is the undisputed top dog in Tinseltown.

Kings Stick With Jones On Wednesday

News: Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will thus draw the start in goal Wednesday versus the Devils, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Analysis: Rather than turning the net back over to the struggling Jonathan Quick, coach Darryl Sutter will stick with the backup Martin Jones, who notched his seventh career shutout Monday against the Leafs. Jones has been outstanding during his two seasons in the NHL, producing a 16-9-0 record, 1.90 GAA and .928 save percentage over his 29 career outings. If Jones can maintain that superb level of play Wednesday, Sutter could very well stick with him for the next several games.

Kings' Jones Blanks Leafs On Monday

News: Martin Jones stopped all 19 shots he faced to lead the Kings to a 2-0 win Monday over the Kings.
Analysis: It's already the seventh career shutout for Martin Jones, who has only made 26 starts during his two seasons in the NHL. Monday's start was his first since Dec. 12, but a performance that was badly needed after he yielded four goals in relief of Jonathan Quick in a Jan. 3 loss to the Predators. Quick has been a disaster in the net lately, so there could be room for Jones to pick up more duty on the heels of this effort.

Kings' Jones To Start Monday

News: Martin Jones will start between the pipes against the Maple Leafs on Monday, Elliot Teaford of Inside the Kings reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones will be making just his tenth appearance of the season as he normally stays off the ice behind usual starter Jonathan Quick. Since Quick will get a rest Monday, Jones will look to improve on his .908 save percentage while searching for his fourth win of the season.

Martin Jones

Kings Turn To Jones

News: Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice at the Kings' morning skate, suggesting that he is in line to start Monday's game against the Maple Leafs, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones is thus on track to make his eighth start of the season and first since Dec. 12 against a Toronto squad that snapped a three-game slide with a 5-2 win over Columbus on Friday.

Kings' Jones Takes OT Loss In Relief

News: Martin Jones entered Saturday's game against the Predators in relief of Jonathan Quick, stopping 12 of 16 shots before taking the loss in overtime.
Analysis: Facing a 3-1 deficit upon replacing Quick midway through the first period, Martin Jones found himself in the middle of an up-and-down affair. He didn't do much to slow the Predators initially, surrendering two goals early in the second period and falling behind 6-3 with less than three minutes left in the third. The Kings promptly engineered an improbable comeback late in the period, rallying for three goals to tie the game with 34 seconds remaining in regulation. Alas, Jones would ultimately give the game away in OT, allowing Roman Josi to beat him on the first shot attempt of the extra frame. It continued a trend of disappointing play for the sparsely-used Jones, who has surrendered a whopping 10 goals over his last 100 minutes of ice time.

Kings' Jones Gives Up Six In Loss

News: Martin Jones surrendered six goals on just 20 shots in Friday's loss to Montreal.
Analysis: Not a strong showing from Martin Jones, who was heavily outplayed by Carey Price on the night, as the Kings outshot the Habs 46-20. Jones is now 3-3-1 on the season with a .921 save percentage and 2.04 goals against average. While the 24-year-old may have struggled Friday, we wouldn't be too worried, as Jones has never allowed more than three goals in any other game this season. Whenever starter Jonathan Quick gets the rare night off, Jones is a solid fantasy option in the Kings' crease.

Kings Start Jones On Friday

News: Martin Jones will start between the pipes against the Canadiens on Friday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones stopped all 26 shots he faced his last time out against the Coyotes last Thursday. His numbers (1.42 GAA and .947 save percentage) would warrant a lot of starts on most teams, but Jones is unfortunately stuck behind one of the leagues top goaltenders in Jonathan Quick. He will likely continue to receive spot starts in place of Quick.

Kings' Jones Shuts Out Arizona

News: Martin Jones put a stop to all 26 shots the Coyotes sent his way in Thursday's 4-0 victory -- his second consecutive shutout.
Analysis: Martin Jones sees spotty work behind Jonathan Quick, but two shutouts in a row will often make the coaches find a way to work you into the rotation a little more. Amazingly, Jones now has even better numbers (1.42 GAA, .947 save percentage) than last year's spectacular work as Quick's backup.

Kings' Jones Projected To Start Thursday

News: Martin Jones was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is projected to start Thursday versus the Coyotes, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Martin Jones will earn his third start in five games after he was able to spin a shutout against the Wild his last time out. Though he typically sees minimal usage behind Jonathan Quick, Jones has looked like one of the league's top backups during his two seasons in the NHL. For his career, he owns a 1.78 GAA, .935 save percentage and five shutouts in 23 starts.
