Martinez activated off injured reserve

2 Comments

The Los Angeles Kings have taken Alec Martinez off injured reserve, activating the 27-year-old defenseman ahead of tomorrow’s home game versus Vancouver.

Martinez has been out since early February with a concussion (or at least “concussion-like symptoms.”)

The Kings now have eight healthy defensemen on the active roster. If Martinez plays tomorrow versus the Canucks, it’s likely that Brayden McNabb would be the one to come out, with Jamie McBain being the other healthy scratch.

Martinez, the unlikely playoff hero, signed a six-year, $24 million contract extension in December.
