Alec Martinez celebrated his new contract in style by notching a goal and an assist in LA's 4-0 win over Arizona on Thursday night.
Jarret Stoll had a pretty tip-in of Martinez's late second period shot to chase Mike Smith from the net, but he was able to notch a power play goal of his own in the third thanks to a Dustin Brown screen. Two shots, well technically one, and two power play points. Plus two hits and four blocks in over 21 minutes of work, surely pleasing everyone. Fri, Dec 5, 2014 12:55:00 AM

Alec Martinez has inked a six-year, $24 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings.

Martinez was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's been a bargain for the Kings at an annual cap hit of $1.1 million over the last two seasons, so it's no surprise that he's getting a big raise now. He logs big minutes for Los Angeles, but his offensive upside is somewhat limited. He had 22 points in 61 contests in 2013-14 and has seven points in 18 games so far this season. With Martinez signed, the Kings now have six defensemen locked up to one-way deals, although one of them is Slava Voynov, who has been suspended indefinitely while he faces a felony domestic violence charge.

Alec Martinez (finger) was able to return to the Kings' lineup on Tuesday.

Martinez had two shots on goal in 19:01 minutes of ice time. It was his first game since Nov. 13. "It felt good to be back playing again," Martinez said. "It's not too much fun being out. As for my game, I'm not too happy with it. I had to shake off a little bit of rust. I know I've got a better game in me next game. At the end of the day, we got the two points. That's all I care about."

Look for Alec Martinez (finger) to return to the Los Angeles lineup on Tuesday.

Martinez broke his finger on November 13 and while it was originally thought that he would miss only a week, it will turn out to be closer to three. He practiced with the team on Friday but is unlikely to play on Saturday.
