Alec Martinez Agrees To A Six-Year Contract Extension With The Los Angeles Kings


added 6:15pm, added official release from the Kings below...

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have signed defenseman Alec Martinez to a six-year contract extension, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today. 

The 27-year-old Martinez (born on July 26, 1987) is a 6-1, 205-pound native of Rochester Hills, Michigan who has appeared in 221 career NHL regular season games, all with the Kings, totaling 62 points (25-37=62), a plus-32 rating and 54 penalty minutes.

A fourth round (95th overall) selection of the Kings at the 2007 NHL Draft, Martinez has been a part of both Stanley Cup runs with Los Angeles. He has played in 59 career postseason games, registering 16 points (6-10=16), a plus-1 rating and 30 penalty minutes. During the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he scored the Stanley Cup clinching goal (June 13 vs. NYR) and the Western Conference Final clinching goal (June 1 at CHI), becoming the first player in NHL history to score at least two series-clinching OT goals in one playoff year, with one being the Stanley Cup clinching goal. Also, he was just the third player overall (first defenseman) to ever score multiple series-clinching OT goals in a single playoff year (Courtesy ESB).

Nice. Certainly not going to complain about this signing. Glad he didn’t leverage the Voynov situation and play hardball.
