Golden Knights re-sign Alec Martinez to three-year deal

The Golden Knights are signing the 33-year-old defenceman to a three-year deal worth roughly $15 million.

Martinez appeared in 53 regular season games with the Vegas Golden Knights last season, registering nine goals and 23 assists. He also tallied four goals and two assists in 19 playoff games before Vegas was eliminated by the Montreal Canadiens in the Stanley Cup semifinals.

He spent the first 11 seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Kings, winning Stanley Cups in 2012 and 2014, but was traded to Vegas for a pair of second-round picks in February of 2020.

Martinez is coming off a six-year, $24 million extension he signed with the Kings in December of 2014 that carried a cap hit of $4 million.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
