Martin Jones stopped 25 of 27 shots in Los Angeles' 2-0 loss to Dallas on Thursday.
It was Jones' first start in seven games. One night after giving Jonathan Quick strong goal support in a 6-5 loss to Anaheim, the Kings were unable to get one by Stars' goalie Kari Lehtonen. Jones is young and talented, but he won't see too many starts unless Quick goes down. The 24-year-old has a 1-2-0 record with a 1.83 goals-against-average and a .928 save-percentage. He is one of the better backup goaltenders in the league. Nov 14 - 1:25 AM

Martin Jones is probable to tend to Los Angeles' cage on Thursday night.

He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate and Jonathan Quick allowed five goals in a 6-5 shootout loss to Anaheim on Wednesday. Jones hasn't played since a 3-0 loss to Pittsburgh on Oct. 30.
Nov 13 - 5:34 PM

There's a fair chance Martin Jones will get a start in the Kings' upcoming set of three games in four days.

Thursday's contest against Dallas would seem like to most logical contest to have Jones play in as Jonathan Quick will probably play on Wednesday. Jones has a 1.73 GAA and .929 save percentage in three contests this season.
Nov 12 - 8:54 AM

Martin Jones allowed three goals on 23 shots and his team's offense didn't do him any favors in a 3-0 loss to Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

Jones' record drops to .500 on the season, as he had come off a winning effort earlier this month where he stopped 29 of 30 shots. With a healthy Jonathan Quick playing lights out hockey, coach Darryl Sutter seems to be turning to his starter whenever possible. L.A. next plays on back-to-back nights on Nov. 12-13.
Oct 30 - 9:47 PM

Martin Jones is probable to be between the pipes for Los Angeles.

He left the ice first at the morning skate, which indicates that he will face Pittsburgh on Thursday night in his second start of 2014-15. Jones made 29 saves on 30 shots in a 4-1 win against Winnipeg on Oct. 12 in his previous outing.
Oct 30 - 5:45 PM

Martin Jones turned aside 29 of 30 shots he faced as the Los Angeles Kings defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 on Sunday night.

This was the Kings' first win of the 2014-15 regular season. Jones got plenty of goal support early, as Tyler Toffoli scored less than seven minutes into the game, and the Kings just kept on rolling. Jones was very good in 19 games with the Kings last season. Assuming starter Jonathan Quick is healthy, Jones should see a little over 20 starts this season.
Oct 13 - 12:45 AM

Martin Jones was the first goaltender off the ice at the Kings' morning skate on Sunday.

Jones is expected to get the start against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday, as Jonathan Quick started on Saturday. Jones played in the Kings' opener after Jonathan Quick was pulled in the third period. The 24-year-old split time between Los Angeles and Manchester (AHL) last season.
Oct 12 - 2:02 PM

Martin Jones stopped 25-28 shots Anaheim sent his way Thursday night, but managed to get the shootout victory.

Jones is out to prove that last season was no fluke as he filled in admirably while Quick was injured or getting the night off. Emerson Etem tapped in Hampus Lindholms unchallenging wrap-around attempt for the first goal, and Dany Heatley buried a fortuitous rebound from the dot for the second. Ryan Kesler snapped in a one-timer from the top of the crease for the third, a goal that Jones was slow to read. Then again, this was his first action of the preseason so maybe don't read too much into it.
Sep 26 - 2:46 AM

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.
