Top Alec Martinez News

  • Golden Knights' Alec Martinez: Adds two more helpers

    Martinez recorded two assists in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Predators.

    Martinez wasn't negatively impacted by Shea Theodore's return Tuesday, aside from losing his power-play role. With five helpers over his last two games, Martinez is enjoying one of his best bursts of offense this season. He'll likely be focusing on the defensive side of things going forward, but he's had a good campaign with 16 points, 57 shots on net, 126 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 39 appearances.

  • Golden Knights' Alec Martinez: Distributes three helpers

    Martinez notched three assists, two shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.

    Martinez assisted on the Golden Knights' last three goals of the game, including one on the power play. He had gone four contests without a point entering Monday. Martinez's time to shine may be near a close -- Shea Theodore (upper body) was activated from long-term injured reserve but didn't play Monday. If Theodore returns Tuesday versus the Predators, Martinez will likely lose some ice time and his power-play role. Through 38 appearances, Martinez has 14 points, 56 shots on net, 125 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating as a defensive ace in a top-four role.

    The Michigan native helped out on both of Vegas' tallies against his home state's team. Martinez enters the bye week with six helpers over his last nine outings -- he's been effective at both ends of the ice since moving onto the top pairing. The 36-year-old blueliner is up to 11 points, 49 shots on net, 109 blocks and a plus-3 rating through 33 contests overall.

Martinez is up to nine points, 44 shots on net, 98 blocks and a plus-5 rating through 30 appearances. While he's unlikely to sustain his recent pace for long, he's worth a look in formats that reward his defensive contributions.

Martinez has a goal, an assist, five blocked shots, three shots on net and two hits over two contests this season. He's settled in quickly with his usual top-four role since returning from an upper-body injury.
