2019 Fantasy Outlook
Martinook's value comes primarily from his willingness to throw the body around. He potted a career-best 15 goals and tied his career high with 25 points last season, adding 199 hits. Set to reprise his bottom-six role for the Hurricanes, Martinook could be worth a look in the later rounds of leagues that value hits, but the 27-year-old winger doesn't have the offensive ability to earn much consideration otherwise.

October 15, 2019
Martinook (abdomen) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
ANALYSIS
Martinook was given a 6-8 week recovery timetable after undergoing surgery to repair a core muscle injury Friday, so his placement on IR doesn't come as a surprise. The 27-year-old, who notched 25 points in 82 games last campaign, will return to a bottom-six role whenver he's deemed fit to play, which won't happen until late November at the earliest.

A penalty-killing specialist lauded for his rigid work ethic, Martinook moved from Arizona to Carolina in a trade that also involved Marcus Kruger and a pair of 2018 draft picks last May. Soon after the transaction processed, it was revealed that the winger played through a torn ligament in his left thumb during the second half of the 2017-18 campaign. While that's not much of a long-term concern, it helps explain why Martinook finished with his weakest offensive output (six goals, nine assists) in a three-year span. The Coyotes had Martinook starting close to 60 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts in the defensive zone, but with two-time Selke Trophy winner Rod Brind'Amour taking over as Carolina's new head coach, he should make the most of Martinook's two-way talents.
There are likely too many skilled players ahead of Martinook on the Arizona depth chart for him to land a scoring role entering the season. However, he does have the potential to be a serviceable third-line forward while chipping in modest offensive numbers. He's never going to be a go-to scorer, but Martinook has proven himself as a versatile two-way player at the NHL level the past two years. His fantasy ceiling is low, but Martinook still offers modest value in cavernous settings.
Martinook played well for AHL Portland last season, generating 15 goals and 43 points in 62 games before suiting up in eight games for Arizona. He will have to surpass a number of veterans and other youngsters ahead of him on the depth chart in order to see significant playing time in the NHL, thus dimming his fantasy prospects for the upcoming season.
The Coyotes' second-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Martinook had his best season in the WHL last year, posting 64 points (40 goals) in 72 games and adding 80 sin bin minutes and a plus-14 rating. He'll spend another year in juniors, but keep an eye on him in the future as the Coyotes are always looking to add strong center play to the big club.
