Alec Martinez (born July 26, 1987 in Rochester Hills, Michigan) is an American professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Vegas Golden Knights of the NHL.

Playing careerEdit

Martinez spent his early years playing hockey in Northern California for the Santa Clara Blackhawks and San Jose Jr. Sharks. He was drafted 95th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft while playing for Miami University. He made his professional debut for the Kings' AHL minor league affiliate Manchester Monarchs in 2008. A year later, he was announced to the opening roster for the 2009–10 season with Kings in which he played 4 games and had no goals and no assists on 6 shots on goal.

He was sent back down to the Manchester Monarchs for the first 20 games of the 2010–11 season. On November 23, 2010, he was recalled by the Los Angeles Kings to replace the struggling Jake Muzzin. On Wednesday, November 24, Martinez scored his first NHL goal (a power play goal) in 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre against Carey Price.[1] Martinez had his first multi-point game December 4, 2010, including a goal against Chris Osgood of the Detroit Red Wings in a 3-2 victory for the Kings.[2] Since joining the squad for the 2010-2011 season Martinez has earned trust from coach Terry Murray for solid play in his own end while providing a solid offensive game as well.[3]

On July 8th 2011, Martinez signed a 2 year / $1.475 million contract with the Kings. During the 2012-13 lockout he played for the TPS of the Liiga and for the Allen Americans of the CHL.

In 2019-20 season, he was traded to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Martinez played for the USA at the 2018 and 2019 World Championships.
