It took Marincin 77 games to reach that feat. He now has two points in 33 contests this season. Although he's just 23 years old, we wouldn't count on Marincin ever developing into a defenseman with much offensive value.

Martin Marincin has been called up from the minors.

Marincin played in 44 games with Edmonton in 2013-14, but he didn't make the team's opening game roster because he "came out slowly." Given how bad the Oilers have been so far though, it's not surprising to see them shake things up.

Martin Marincin didn't survive the Oilers' final roster cut.

Marincin had six assists in 44 games with Edmonton as a rookie in 2013-14. "I thought Marty played very well last year, and we thought about that, but the makeup of our D is we're looking in that spot for more battle, more heaviness," said Oilers coach Dallas Eakins. "And Marty was one of the guys who came out slowly. It wasn't just one or two, it was two or three guys who outplayed him throughout camp." Marincin is still just 22 years old, so this probably isn't the last we'll hear of him.

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.

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.
