Martin Marincin's strong rookie campaign is looking like one of the silver linings in Edmonton's disappointing season.
The Oilers have trusted Marincin with an average of 18:35 minutes per game and he leads the worst team in the Western Conference with a plus-two rating. He hasn't done much offensively and consequently isn't worth keeping an eye on in standard leagues, but he might prove to be a reliable defenseman with the Oilers for years to come. Mar 27 - 9:00 AM

Coach Dallas Eakins hopes that defenseman Martin Marincin learns a lot at the Olympics from his Slovak teammate Zdeno Chara.

Chara met with Marincin after Saturday's Boston-Edmonton game. "It was great for me to meet him," Marincin said. "He's a big guy for me, I really liked him growing up. We just talked about Sochi and how the season was going. I had never met him before, so that was exciting. Being on a team with Zdeno Chara will be great for me. I will try to learn from him and hopefully it will help me." Marincin will turn 22 during the Sochi games and has only one assist and a plus-one rating in 19 games since his recall in December but he does have some offensive upside.

Coach Dallas Eakins was quite impressed with the play of Martin Marincin in his NHL debut Thursday.

"I thought he was solid back there." Eakins said. "That's all you want, not only of a guy playing his first game, but every night from your defensemen. Play solid, play simple and he did that." The second round pick in the 2010 Draft was plus-one with a minor penalty in 15:25 minutes of action.

Martin Marincin has been called up by the Edmonton Oilers.

Marincin has two goals and six points in 20 games this season. Those numbers obviously aren't going to make you scramble to get him, and if you're in a standard league that instinct is definitely correct. Still, he is worth keeping an eye on as he does have the potential to develop into a defenseman that puts up fantasy-worthy offensive numbers.
