Martin Jones allowed two goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win against the Canadiens.
After a terrible start with eight total goals allowed in four-plus periods, Jones has settled down for a pair of victories over his past two outings. He chopped down his goals-against average from 3.91 to 3.38, but he still has plenty of work to do before he is back in the good graces of his fantasy owners. Oct 18 - 3:40 AM

Date:

Martin Jones will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

Jones is coming off his first win of the season. The Sharks have had a hard time scoring goals so Jones might not be the best fantasy option ahead of tonight's game. He has a 1-2-0 record with a 3.93 goals-against-average and a .881 save percentage this season.
Oct 17 - 3:28 PM

Martin Jones made 23 saves on Thursday night as the San Jose Sharks defeated the Buffalo Sabres 3-2.

The 6'4 goaltender hasn't been all too impressive so far this season, but did manage to eke out his first victory of the campaign. He sports a 3.92 goals-against average and a .881 save percentage, but with youngster Aaron Dell backing him up, Jones will undoubtedly see the majority of starts and can still add fantasy value.
Oct 13 - 1:44 AM

Martin Jones will get the start in Thursday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Jones has a 0-2-0 record with a 5.17 goals-against-average and a .864 save percentage this season. Despite being winless, he should be a strong fantasy option against a mediocre Buffalo team.
Oct 12 - 6:34 PM

Martin Jones turned back 25 of 29 shots in a 4-1 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Jones was replaced by Aaron Dell with 5:55 remaining in the second period. Dell defended all nine shots he faced in relief, while Jones picked up his second loss of the season. He has a 5.16 GAA and an .864 save percentage after his first two appearances of 2017-18.
Oct 8 - 2:02 AM

Martin Jones is probable to get the call against the Kings Saturday night.

Jones allowed four goals on 30 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Flyers Wednesday night but there doesn't look to be much incentive on the part of the Sharks' coaching staff to start backup Aaron Dell just yet. Look for Jones to do well in a low-scoring affair if he gets the nod Saturday night against Los Angeles.
Oct 7 - 1:05 PM

Martin Jones allowed four goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss against the Flyers in the regular season opener.

Jones didn't get out to a very good start, as he gave the puck away on a clearing attempt, leading to the first goal for Philly. He also was caught too deep in net on a power-play goal by Jordan Weal for the second tally of the night. There will be better days for Jones, who is still a top fantasy option for a good club. Look for Jones to serve as the backstop for at least 60 games in the new season.
Oct 5 - 2:31 AM

Martin Jones will get the start in Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Jones heads into the season as the clear starter in San Jose, so he should see a lot of work this season. The 27-year-old had a 35-23-6 record with a 2.40 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage last season. He should start between 60 and 65 games in 2017-18.
Oct 4 - 8:56 PM

Martin Jones allowed three goals on 20 shots in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

Jones heads into the season as the clear number one goalie on the Sharks roster, so he'll see a heavy workload in 2017-18. He's coming off a year in which he posted a 35-23-6 record with a 2.40 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. He's a solid number two goalie in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 1 - 12:36 AM

Martin Jones allowed two goals on 25 shots in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Jones blanked the Ducks through two periods, but they beat him twice in the final frame (Anaheim also scored an empty-netter). Jones is the undisputed starter in San Jose, so he'll have a fair amount of fantasy value. The 27-year-old had 35-23-6 record with a 2.40 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage last season.
Sep 29 - 12:35 AM

The San Jose Sharks and Martin Jones have agreed to a six-year/$34.5 million contract extension.

Jones has been outstanding for the Sharks in the two seasons since he was traded from Los Angeles, via Boston, to the Sharks. He was 35-23-6 last season with a 2.40 GAA and a .912 save percentage after a 37-23-4 mark the previous season with a 2.27 GAA and a .918 save percentage. He should be drafted between five and 10 among goalies.
Jul 1 - 1:05 PM

Contract talks between Martin Jones and the San Jose Sharks are reportedly going well.

TSN's Pierre LeBrun has reported that all signs point to an extension coming in early July. Jones has one more season remaining on his current contract.
Jun 7 - 6:19 PM

Re-signing Martin Jones is one of the Sharks' priorities over the summer, per GM Doug Wilson.

Jones has firmly established himself as San Jose's starter over the last two seasons and finished the 2016-17 campaign with a 2.40 GAA and .912 save percentage in 65 starts. He'll come with a $3 million cap hit in 2017-18 in the last season of his contract, but re-signing Jones will probably involve giving him a sizable raise beyond next season.
Apr 25 - 10:55 AM

Martin Jones permitted two goals on 20 shots, as the Sharks were eliminated in six games by Edmonton on Saturday night.

Jones allowed two breakaway goals in about a minute during the second period of Game 6. He made some key stops down the stretch, but it wasn't enough as the Sharks could only get one puck behind Cam Talbot. Jones recorded a 1.75 GAA and a .935 save percentage in the postseason.
Apr 23 - 1:51 AM

Martin Jones, who was a standout in the Game 5 loss, will probably start in goal for the Sharks against the Oilers Saturday night.

It wasn't Jones' fault the Sharks lost 4-3 in overtime to the Oilers as he stopped 44 shots, some in spectacular fashion and he was great in the extra session. Jones will have to be at his best if the Sharks are going to prolong their season as they are facing elimination Saturday night.
