Alec Martinez picked two assists with three blocked shots and a hit in Tuesday's 5-0 victory in Edmonton.
It was the first multi-point game of the season for Martinez, and the first time he struck for two points in a game since chipping in with two helpers on March 11 against Washington last season. The points were nice, but his real value to fantasy owners is in the blocked shots department. He is second in the NHL with 106 blocked shots through 37 outings. Jan 3 - 12:40 AM

Alec Martinez scored a goal in the Kings' 4-1 win over Philadelphia on Monday.

Martinez also logged a staggering 27:33 minutes of ice time, in part because defenseman Christian Folin left the game in the first period due to an upper-body injury. Martinez's goal gives him three markers and 10 points in 32 contests in 2017-18.

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

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.
