Martin Jones put forth a terrific rookie season in 2013-14 and could be a viable fantasy option in net if Jonathan Quick does not recovery quickly from his off-season wrist surgery.
Quick is the Kings' undisputed starter and Jones will not hold significant fantasy value unless he is propelled into a starting role due to injury or a trade. Nonetheless, Quick is coming off a long spring and off-season wrist surgery, and although his projected return is during the pre-season, the Kings would be wise not to overwork their starter if Jones proves that his success last season was no fluke. Jones is a smart draft choice to back up Quick on your fantasy roster, but could be universally valuable if Quick can't stay healthy. Aug 30 - 2:09 PM

Goaltender Martin Jones possesses a perfect track record in shootouts so far in his young career.

The Kings backup netminder has stopped all 12 shootout attempts he has faced thus far in his time in the NHL, a mark that's certain to change. Marc-Andre Fleury of the Penguins actually holds the best current shootout stats in the league, having blocked 78.7 percent of opponent's attempts (59/75) over the past three seasons. For reference, Los Angeles keeper Jonathan Quick has blocked 65 of 97 attempts (67 percent) over that same span.
Aug 3 - 10:06 AM

Martin Jones blocked all three shots he faced in relief of Jonathan Quick in Game 4 on Saturday night.

The Kings fell 2-0 to the Ducks, despite dictating the pace for two-thirds of the game. Jones played nearly two full periods (the team pulled the goalie to try to score late in the game), yet only faced three shots. Coach Darryl Sutter yanked Jonathan Quick for the start of the second, with the team down 2-0, to try to give his team a lift, and that it did, except for on the scoresheet. The Kings gave up no shots in the second, with the last even-strength one occurring at 19:56 of the first frame. The series is tied 2-2, and Quick should be back in net.
May 11 - 12:34 AM

Martin Jones stopped all 17 shots he faced in Los Angeles' 3-0 win over Edmonton Thursday night.

It was Jones' fourth shutout of the season and his record improved to 12-6-0. He also now has a 1.81 goals-against average and .934 save percentage. It has been a very solid season for the rookie goaltender.
Apr 11 - 4:24 AM

Martin Jones blocked 19 of 21 shots in Los Angeles' 2-1 loss to San Jose Thursday night.

Jones now has a 11-6-0 record with a 1.91 goals-against average and .932 save percentage. He has pretty solid numbers with the Kings this year. The Kings play their next game on Saturday against Vancouver and Jonathan Quick will probably get the start then.
Apr 4 - 2:36 AM

Martin Jones was solid for the Kings in Thursday's 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh.

Jones stopped 35 of 37 shots in the game, which improves his record to 11-5-0 on the season. Despite limited playing time behind starter Jonathan Quick, the Kings backup has proven capable of carrying the load when needed, as evidenced by his fantastic 1.91 GAA and .933 save percentage.
Mar 27 - 10:41 PM

Martin Jones is probable to start Thursday night.

He was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate, so he's projected to face the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Mar 27 - 4:13 PM

Martin Jones yielded only two goals in the Kings' 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.

He blocked 18 shots. Jones was making his first start since March 10. Jonathan Quick had been ill, but he was dressed for this game. Jones has a 1.90 goals-against average and .932 save percentage. As talented as he is, Jones shouldn't expect too many starts down the stretch.
Mar 16 - 1:26 AM

It's probable that Martin Jones will get the start for Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Jonathan Quick is listed as a game-time decision because of an illness and he didn't skate in the morning.
Mar 15 - 5:33 PM

Martin Jones stopped 24 of 26 shots in Los Angeles' 3-2 win over Calgary Monday night at Scotiabank Saddledome.

Jones returned to Calgary where he spent his junior career with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL. He holds almost every conceivable goaltending record for the Hitmen, including games played (148), minutes played (8,704), wins (108), shutouts (16) and saves (3374). His record in the NHL now stands in 10-4-0 with a 1.89 GAA and .933 save percentage.
Mar 11 - 4:17 AM

Martin Jones will get the nod for Los Angeles on Monday night versus Calgary.

This will mark his first appearance in the Kings' crease since he allowed four goals on 29 shots in a 6-4 victory over Colorado on Feb. 26. Jones spent his junior career with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL, so he's likely to feel comfortable playing in the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Mar 10 - 5:27 PM

Martin Jones stopped 25 of 29 shots in Los Angeles' 6-4 win over Colorado Wednesday night.

Jones stopped all 11 shots he faced in the third period, including big saves against Gabriel Landeskog and Jamie McGinn. Jones had lost his four last starts, whereas he won his nine eight games in the NHL. He now has a 9-4-0 record with a fantastic 1.88 GAA and .934 save percentage.
Feb 27 - 3:38 AM

Look for Martin Jones to play between the pipes on Wednesday.

That hasn't been confirmed, but Jones was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who will start. It makes sense to give Jones the nod, given that Jonathan Quick just came back from representing the United States in Sochi.
Feb 26 - 2:53 PM

Martin Jones thought his stint in the minors during the Olympic break was beneficial.

The NHL rules prevented most players that could be sent to the AHL during the break from being eligible, but Jones was one of the few noteworthy NHLers that could play. "As a goalie, it's important to play games and obviously practicing hard and working on that stuff in practice is important, but it's hard to rep playing a game," Jones said. "So it's good for me to go down and get some time in and I'm excited to be back and get back at it here." He has a 1.71 GAA and .940 save percentage in 13 games this season. Given that Jonathan Quick will have to readjust to the major timezone difference after returning from Sochi, we wouldn't be surprised if Jones starts on Wednesday.
Feb 25 - 9:29 AM

Martin Jones is back up with Los Angeles.

J.F. Berube was assigned to the minors. The moves were expected to occur with the NHL getting back to work this week. Jones posted a 5-1-1 with a 2.24 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in his seven games during his AHL stint over the break.
