Alec Martinez posted an assist with a plus-2 rating, a blocked shot and three hits in Monday's 3-1 win against Colorado.

Martinez was doing what he does best. Sure, he has a respectable seven goals with 22 points and a plus-4 rating through 75 games, but his real value to fantasy owners and his real team is his physicality. Martinez is now up to 99 hits and 203 blocked shots. He is second in the NHL only to Edmonton's Kris Russell in the blocked shots category.
Apr 3 - 1:39 AM

Alec Martinez blocked seven shots Monday.

That gives him 187 this season, a new-career high and is second in the NHL, trailing only Kris Russell who has 207. After back-to-back 30-plus point seasons, Martinez has only seven goals and 21 points this season so he has been a bit of a disappointment offensively in 2017-18.
Mar 20 - 8:28 AM

Alec Martinez scored a goal and registered an assist in the Kings' 4-3 win against the Jets on Tuesday.

That was Martinez's second multi-point game of the campaign with his first coming on Jan. 21. He has six goals and 19 points in 55 contests this season.
Feb 21 - 11:07 AM

Alec Martinez posted an assist with two blocked shots and a hit in Tuesday's 3-1 win at Chicago.

Martinez has managed five goals with 17 points and a plus-1 rating through 54 games. That's below-average from a fantasy perspective. However, he more than makes up for the lack of offense with his 68 hits and 160 blocked shots. In fact, he is second in the NHL in the blocks department.
Feb 20 - 12:15 AM

Alec Martinez (lower body) returned to action on Friday February 9.

Martinez is back after missing two straight games. He had two shots in 22:15 minutes in his return.
Feb 10 - 2:15 AM

Alec Martinez (lower body) took part in Tuesday's practice.

Martinez also skated on Monday, so it seems like he's getting close to returning. That being said, his status is still up in the air when it comes to Wednesday's contest. "I’m not sure yet," Kings coach John Stevens said in reference to Martinez's availability. "He skated again today, I’ll wait to see how he responds."
Feb 7 - 5:53 AM

Alex Martinez is doubtful to play Saturday against the Coyotes.

Martinez sustained a lower-body injury Thursday night and according to Kings' coach John Stevens should be considered day-to-day. The good news is that Stevens didn't believe Martinez's injury was a long-term deal.
Feb 3 - 12:54 PM

Alec Martinez couldn't complete Thursday's game due to a lower-body injury.

Martinez didn't play in the third period, but it's not clear what incident led to him getting hurt. The severity of his injury isn't known yet either, so consider him day-to-day for now. For what it's worth, he was seen after the game walking without the use of crutches, so that's a positive sign at least.
Feb 2 - 5:09 AM

Alec Martinez posted a win with a plus-1 rating, five blocked shots, two hits and a minor penalty in Tuesday's 3-0 win at Dallas.

Martinez picked up his first goal since Dec. 21, breaking a 13-game drought. He is still on pace for just 24 points, which would be a far cry from the 35.0 point average he has managed over the past two seasons. The rearguard still has plenty of time to turn things around, and he has logged one goal and seven points on the power play to help fantasy owners in those categories.
Jan 31 - 12:01 AM

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.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 06:00:00 AM

Alec Martinez blocked five shots on Sunday and moved into a first place tie in the category with Toronto's Nikita Zaitsev.

Both have blocked 62 shots this season. Martinez has been off to a slow start offensively as he has only two goals and four points this season. He had 39 points last year so he is capable of more but just has not done so in 2017-18.
Mon, Nov 20, 2017 06:30:00 AM

Alec Martinez's second goal of the season capped a furious comeback by the Kings.

The Kings were down 3-0 to the Predators entering the third period but Martinez's power play marker tied it at 3 and sent the game into overtime where the Kings eventually lost. Martinez has four points and a plus-three rating in 11 games this season and should be on your radar as he had 39 points last season.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 08:16:00 AM

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.
