Kings’ Martinez undergoes finger surgery

Los Angeles, CA ( – Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alec
Martinez had surgery Friday to repair an injured finger, according to the
team’s official site.

Martinez exited Thursday’s 2-0 loss to Dallas midway through the second period
and did not return. The Kings have yet to provide a timetable on how long
he’ll be sidelined.

The 27-year-old clinched Los Angeles’ second Stanley Cup in three seasons with
an overtime goal in Game 5 of the Finals against the New York Rangers last
June. The marker was Martinez’s fifth of the 2014 Playoffs.

Through 17 games this season, Martinez has recorded two goals, five assists
and a plus-nine rating.
