Golden Knights give Martinez 3-year extension
Martinez was eligible for unrestricted free agency this offseason.
Vegas acquired Martinez from the Los Angeles Kings prior to the 2020 trade deadline for two second-round picks. He slotted in on the Golden Knights' blue line as a strong support piece behind stars Alex Pietrangelo and Shea Theodore.
Martinez, 34, had 32 points in 53 games in 2020-21, a pace that would have shattered his career high of 39 over a full season. He also averaged over 22 minutes per game and led the NHL in blocked shots with 168.
