Alec Martinez: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Martinez was paired with Matt Greene for most of the season on the team's bottom pairing on the backend, chipping in a dozen points (six goals, six assists) in 51 games. He has the ability to man the point on the top power play if something were to happen to Drew Doughty, but for now will see limited time on the team's second unit. He could be a sneaky source of points in an expanded role, but figures to see most of his time on the team's third pair again this year.
Martinez was a regular presence on the Kings' blue line last year and responded with 16 points (five goals, 11 assists) in his rookie campaign. He won't get enough power-play time with Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson around to warrant much value in most formats.
Martinez spent the bulk of his season at the AHL, registering 30 points in 55 games for Manchester. The Kings are loaded with defensemen and Martinez doesn't really do anything to stand out among the crowd. He'll see some time with the Kings when injuries dictate again this year but doesn't bring much to the table from a fantasy perspective.
Martinez is a smooth skating defensemen who needs to add a little bulk to play in the NHL. He posted 23 points (8 G, 15 A) in 72 games in his first season as a pro in the AHL. He'll spend most of the season in the AHL but could see time in LA when injuries dictate.
