Top Matt Martin News

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Hurt in third period Saturday

    Martin (undisclosed) left Saturday's game versus the Bruins, and head coach Patrick Roy didn't have an update on the winger's status after the contest, Ethan Sears of the New York Post reports.

    Martin should be considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Blues. If he can't play, Oliver Wahlstrom will likely take his place in the lineup.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Practicing Saturday

    Martin (illness) is practicing Saturday, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Martin missed Thursday's game versus Montreal. The 34-year-old is lining up with Kyle MacLean and Cal Clutterbuck on the fourth line as Julien Gauthier appears to be the odd-man out when the Islanders face Florida on Saturday. Martin has two goals, one assist and 72 hits in 26 contests this season.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Battling illness

    Martin is dealing with an illness and will miss Thursday's game against Montreal.

    Martin has two goals, three points and 72 hits in 26 contests this season. With Martin unavailable, Hudson Fasching, who was projected to be a healthy scratch Thursday, will remain in the lineup.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Pokes in goal

    Martin scored a goal, added five hits and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Martin shoveled in a Casey Cizikas pass at 2:42 of the third period to cut the deficit to two goals, but Vegas quickly responded. The tally was Martin's first point in four games since he returned from two stints on injured reserve with an upper-body injury. The 34-year-old winger has just three points and 16 shots to go with 40 hits and 12 PIM through 18 outings this season, so he's not likely to be helpful in fantasy.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Off injured reserve

    Martin (upper body) was removed from injured reserve Wednesday, per the NHL media site.

    Martin hasn't been in the lineup since Nov. 15 because of the injury. He has a goal, two points and 31 hits in 14 contests this season. If he draws into the lineup Wednesday versus Washington, it will likely be as a member of the fourth line.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Back on IR

    Martin (upper body) was put on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Martin's placement on IR is retroactive to Dec. 2, so he can be activated whenever he is available to return. He hasn't been in the lineup since Nov. 15 against Vancouver, and this marks his second trip to the injured reserve list since that appearance. Martin has one goal, one assist and 31 hits in 14 outings this campaign.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Still not fully recovered

    Martin has not been cleared to return from his upper-body injury despite being activated off injured reserve, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Martin hasn't played since Nov. 15 against the Canucks, a stretch of nine games on the shelf due to his upper-body issue. Once cleared to play, Martin should reclaim his fourth-line role but won't offer much in the way of offensive upside considering he has just two points in 14 games.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Removed from IR

    Martin (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

    Martin is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday versus New Jersey following a five-game absence. The bottom-six winger has accounted for one goal, one assist, 11 shots on net and 31 hits in 14 outings this season.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Placed on injured reserve

    The Islanders put Martin (upper body) on injured reserve Saturday, retroactive to Nov. 15.

    Martin was injured versus the Canucks and the retroactive move allows him to be activated at any time, as more than a week has already passed. Martin has a goal and an assist with 31 hits in 14 games this season.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Unavailable Friday

    Martin (upper body) didn't travel with the Islanders to Ottawa, per Andrew Gross of Newsday, and consequently isn't an option for Friday's contest versus the Senators.

    This will be New York's fourth consecutive game without Martin. The Islanders will return home after Friday's action, so he still might be available for Saturday's game versus Philadelphia. When Martin is able to return, he'll serve in a fourth-line capacity.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Not playing Saturday

    Martin (upper body) won't be available for Saturday's contest against Calgary, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Martin will sit out a second straight game due to an upper-body injury. He has one goal, one assist, 11 shots on net and 31 hits through 14 outings this season. With Martin out, Hudson Fasching is projected to play on New York's fourth line again.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Sitting out Thursday

    Martin (upper body) won't play Thursday versus the Kraken, Ethan Sears of the New York Post reports.

    Martin logged just 7:11 of ice time Wednesday versus the Canucks, which is a bit low even compared to his average of 8:27 per game. With Julien Gauthier (illness) also out, Hudson Fasching figures to get into the lineup. Martin can be considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game in Calgary.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Tucks in rebound

    Martin scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Casey Cizikas picked off a clearing attempt and generated a rebound with his shot, which Martin put away for an insurance goal in the third period. The tally was Martin's first goal and second point through seven contests. The heavy-hitting winger has 17 hits, seven shots on net, seven PIM and a plus-2 rating while playing as a fixture on the Islanders' fourth line.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Good for helper in overtime loss

    Martin posted an assist in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss against the Devils.

    Martin did very little in his first two games, going scoreless with no shots on goal or any other counting statistics. He came alive Friday, notching the assist with a plus-1 rating, a shot on goal, a minor penalty and two hits in 9:16 of ice time. Hits and penalties are generally his biggest contributions for fantasy managers in deeper pools.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Being moved around

    Martin could play on what is technically the third line with Casey Cizikas and Hudson Fasching versus the Capitals on Saturday.

    Martin has been like a pinball of late, playing on different lines with different players. This has included a stint or two on the top line as coach Lane Lambert has been trying to find the right combination of forwards game in and game out. The return of Cal Clutterbuck (upper body) from IR on Saturday also could indicate that it's only a matter of time until the crash line of Martin, Cizikas and Clutterbuck is put back together.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Bags apple in loss

    Martin notched an assist, five shots on goal and three hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

    Martin's five shots led the Islanders, who had only 18 attempts on target as a team. The winger continues to chip in offense at a higher-than-usual rate -- he's collected two goals and four helpers over his last seven contests. He's up to 19 points, matching his career-best mark from 2015-16, through 61 games this season. He's also supplied 235 hits, 64 shots on net, 54 PIM and a plus-3 rating. Martin won't produce like this forever, but he's getting a look on the top line at even strength with Mathew Barzal (lower body) out.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Snags helper in win

    Martin logged an assist, three shots on goal, three hits and two PIM in Monday's 4-2 win over the Penguins.

    The Islanders are missing a handful of wingers to injury, so Martin should have some job security until the team's health improves. The helper was his fourth point (two goals, two assists) over the last five games -- Martin is definitely making good use of an increased role. The 33-year-old is at 17 points (two shy of his career high) with 58 shots on net, 229 hits, 54 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 59 appearances this season.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Lights the lamp

    Martin scored his sixth goal of the season in the 4-3 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday.

    Martin has already doubled his goal production from last season, and that also goes for his assists. Martin is not relied upon to provide offense on a regular basis, but every little bit helps, especially for a team that can struggle to put the puck in the net at times. Martin also has 211 hits and is on pace to have the most hits he's had in a season since the 2016-17 campaign, and that's where his value lies to the team and fantasy players.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Top three in hits

    Martin is third in the league in hits with 198 in 51 games this season.

    Martin is on pace to have more than 300 hits this season, something he hasn't done since he had 365 in 2015-16. Martin only has five goals and 13 points so far this year, so if he's not hitting anything and everything that moves, he's not adding much value to the team. Cal Clutterbuck (upper body), Casey Cizikas, and Martin used to be mainstays on the energy line for the Isles, but injuries and lack of offense have forced coach Lane Lambert to mix and match his lines on what seems like a shift-by-shift basis this season.

  • Islanders' Matt Martin: Brushes twine Monday

    Martin scored a goal on two shots and levied 10 hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals.

    Martin got a piece of a Cal Clutterbuck shot to tally the Islanders' second goal of the game. In the 18 games between Martin's most recent goals, he produced five assists, 24 PIM and 57 hits. The 33-year-old remains a notable hitter, and while he has 12 points in 44 contests this season, his offense isn't anything special. That point total is his highest since 2018-19, and he's added 153 hits, 35 shots on net, 43 PIM and a plus-4 rating so far in 2022-23.
