Martin Jones finished up the pre-season with a 3-1 record.
What was sensational was his peripherals as he had a GAA of 0.76 with a .970 save percentage. The netminder was a backup to Jonathan Quick last season but seems to have the number one job in San Jose in his hip pocket as the NHL regular season begins. He is likely a lower end number one goalie in a 12 team league or a top-notch second netminder in the same pool. Oct 3 - 10:11 AM

Martin Jones blanked the Coyotes on just 18 shots on Friday night.

That's right, just 18 pucks made it to Jones with only two coming in the middle frame. Granted it is the Coyotes and their lineup had several players with little to no NHL experience, but a shut out is a shut out.

Martin Jones has a .963 save percentage in the preseason.

It obviously won't be that high in the regular season, but the Sharks have to hope that his success in the exhibition games does carry forward. San Jose plan on using Jones and Alex Stalock as its goaltenders this season. Both of them are light on NHL experience, but the hope is that one of them will establish himself as a solid starter. Jones is definitely a risk, but one that's capable of paying off.

Martin Jones makes 30 saves in the Sharks 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

Jones beat the Canucks for the second time in less than a week and looked good in doing it again. This wasn't the Canucks' "A" roster though but he did make some big saves to preserve the win. Brent Burns and Tommy Wingels provided the scoring for the Sharks.

Martin Jones stopped all 30 shots he faced in the Sharks 4-0 win over the Canucks on Tuesday.

A very good start to earning the number one goalie job for Jones who is in competition with Alex Stalock. Jones even stopped all the shots he faced in the NHL's mandated 3-on-3 exhibition at the end of the game. Jones looks like the guy to own from the Sharks goalie combo this season after getting the three year contract this summer but he is still a risk because we don't know exactly if he can handle the load.

Martin Jones is set to be the full-time starter for the first time in his career after signing with the San Jose Sharks in the offseason.

Now the question will be, can he handle the role? He has been the backup goaltender to one of the league’s best, in Jonathan Quick, for the past two seasons. Jones registered a 16-11-0 record in 34 games played with a .923 save percentage and 1.99 goals-against-average during his two-year stint with the Kings. He'll be 25-years old at the start of the 2015-16 season but only has 29 career starts under his belt, so there is some risk in drafting Jones as your fantasy netminder.

Martin Jones has inked a three-year, $9 million contract with the San Jose Sharks.

Jones was eligible to test the restricted free agent market. He played for Los Angeles last season, but was dealt to Boston and then San Jose over the course of the last week. Jones had a 2.25 GAA and .906 save percentage in 15 contests last season. The move to San Jose gives him an opportunity to compete for a starting gig and he's not a bad late round gamble in standard fantasy league drafts as a result. Just don't get too excited about his career NHL numbers given the relatively small sample size.

Martin Jones may have a contract with San Jose by the end of the day, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

Dreger spoke to Jones' agent and a new deal appears to be moving along swiftly for the restricted free agent. Jones was traded to Boston just before the draft and then flipped to the Sharks.

Martin Jones has been traded to the San Jose Sharks for a 2016 first-round draft pick and unsigned prospect Sean Kuraly.

Jones has a 16-11-2 record with a .923 save percentage and a 1.99 goals-against average in 34 games with the Los Angeles Kings over the past two seasons. He was just acquired by the Bruins in the Milan Lucic deal, but now his fantasy stock has improved considerably as he has a good chance of being the starting goalie for the Sharks.

The Boston Bruins believe that Martin Jones has the potential to be a number one goalie at the NHL level.

The Bruins acquired Jones from the Los Angeles Kings as part of a package for winger Milan Lucic. The 25-year-old will be a restricted free-agent on July 1st, but the Bruins are confident they can hammer out a deal with their new goalie. "We haven’t got into any negotiations yet, but we got a pretty good idea of where they’re at from speaking to (the Kings)," said Director of Player Personnel John Ferguson Jr. "He’s a backup thus far and he certainly has a higher upside than that."
Jun 28 - 10:29 AM

Along with the 13th overall draft pick and prospect Colin Miller, the Los Angeles Kings are sending goaltender Martin Jones to the Boston Bruins for Milan Lucic.

Jones joins an already crowded crease behind starter Tuukka Rask, who has five years left on his contract, along with prospects Zane McIntyre and Malcolm Subban. Jones has accumulated 34 games of NHL experience over the last two seasons behind Jonathan Quick, and has posted a 16-11-2 record with a 1.99 GAA and .923 save percentage. The 25-year-old has one year at $550,000 left on his contract.

Martin Jones is reportedly on the trade market.

TSN's Darren Drger reports that Jones "remains a prime trade target on the goalie market. Moving him east sounds like preferred option for Kings brass." The Los Angeles backup feels ready to be a number one goalie and there is some contract uncertainty, according to Dreger, which is fueling the trade speculation.
Jun 24 - 4:17 PM

The Los Angeles Kings are reportedly close to re-signing Martin Jones.

Jones had a 2.25 GAA and .906 save percentage in 15 games in 2014-15. He's completed his entry-level contract, which came with a $526,666 annual cap hit.
Jun 16 - 1:44 PM

Martin Jones has received his first career call to Team Canada for May's World Hockey Championships in the Czech Republic.

Jones, who has served as the LA Kings' understudy to starter Jonathan Quick, has seen just 34 games over his first two seasons. Jones has compiled a 16-11-2 record with an astounding seven shutouts with 62 goals against. He is expected to share the crease with Arizona Coyotes' starter Mike Smith.
Apr 14 - 8:50 PM

Martin Jones make 18 saves on 20 shots in the Kings 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Tuesday.

Jones' start in a crucial must win game will be questioned by many after the end result. It was a second half of a back-to-back game set for the Kings though and in most cases starting the backup is the right thing to do. In his defense, Jones was not the reason the team lost but wasn't part of the solution either on this night. Despite posting a solid 2.09 GAA and .906 save percentage, Jones has not earned a win since Jan.12 over Toronto.
