News: Martin was credited with an assist in Saturday's Game 2 win over the Rangers.
Impact: Martin typically doesn't see much involvement, but he's been able to come away with three assists in his last five games dating back to the regular season. With several Pens defensemen banged up at the moment, Martin's minutes have been on the rise, so the counting stats could continue to trickle in.

News: Martin contributed an assist in Saturday's win over the Coyotes.
Impact: The 34-year-old usually doesn't offer much production on the offensive end, but even by his usually low standards, he's struggled to provide an impact. Despite playing in 28 more games this season, Martin only has three more points and four more shot attempts than he generated in 2013-14.
Rotowire: Feb 20 / 8:38a ET
News: Martin notched an assist in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jackets.
Impact: As his appointment to the U.S. Olympic team last winter would suggest, Martin is a quality real-life defenseman, but he's never carried much appeal in fantasy circles. The assist in Thursday's game gives him a pedestrian 14 points in 50 games, dimming much of his value. Aside from a solid plus-minus (plus-14) and a decent total of blocked shots (95), Martin is a below-average contributor in just about every other category.
