Alec Martinez skating in full practice

Defenseman Alec Martinez is skating with the full team at practice today. He had previously skated with Simon Gagne, Brad Richardson, Andrew Campbell and Jonathan Bernier on Tuesday. Martinez suffered an upper-body injury during a 4-1 win in St. Louis on February 11.

In 11 games this season, Martinez has one goal, two points and an even rating while averaging 18:56 of ice time.

He has not yet been activated from injured reserve. The Kings would not have to assign anyone to Manchester to activate him, and General Manager Dean Lombardi has indicated that he will keep two extra defensemen and one extra forward when he is ready to be activated.

More to come before the team departs for Vancouver.
