Alec Martinez picked up an assist in his season debut Saturday.

Martinez missed the first three games of the season with a lower body injury. The assist was the 100th of his NHL career. Martinez had 39 points last season so 35-40 points is within his wheelhouse in 2017-18. Get him in your lineup in leagues that use at least four blueliners.

Alec Martinez (lower body) is a full participant in Friday's practice.

Based like that, it wouldn't be surprising if Martinez returns in the near future. The Kings are set to play against Buffalo on Saturday, so we'll have to see if the Kings activate him from the injured reserve ahead of that contest.

Alec Martinez (lower body) was on the ice Tuesday morning.

Martinez only skated for about 15 minutes though and left before the Kings' practice. Even still, it is a good step forward for him. "He just went out on his own," Kings coach John Stevens said. "Just starting to get acclimated on the ice, so he’s progressing along, feeling better, and he’s getting closer to a return to practice." We'd be surprised if Martinez played on Wednesday, but consider him day-to-day beyond that.
