Playing career[edit | edit source]

Martins was drafted in the 1994 NHL Supplemental Draft by the Hartford Whalers. Martins primarily played in the minor leagues, but managed to play 267 games in the NHL, recording 21 goals and 25 assists. His best minor league season was 2005–06 with the Binghamton Senators when he recorded 22 goals and 58 assists. He finished his career with the Chicago Wolves in 2008–09. In an era of tall and big players, Martins' 5 foot, 9 inch height was a large disadvantage to a steady NHL career. Martins' best season in the NHL was 1999–2000 with the Tampa Bay Lightning, recording 5 goals and 17 assists in 57 games.
