Video highlights of Alec Martinez playing for HC TPS in Finland

Over the last few days we’ve kept you updated on Alec Martinez‘ first week of action over in Finland. Through Friday, the 25-year old Kings defenseman had played in three games for TPS Turku and was averaging a team-high 24:45 in ice time per game. He’s also been credited with eight shots on goal but has yet to record his first point.

Martinez and TPS are scheduled for another game today – their second set of back-to-back games this week – in a re-match with Lokke, who they also played yesterday. One side note to the storyline, former Kings prospect Justin Azevedo has been suspended from today’s game after receiving a major penalty for physical contact yesterday. Technically, Azevedo is still Kings property, as he’s a restricted free agent. The 5-foot-7 center was originally selected in the sixth round of the 2008 draft, yet it’s highly unlikely you’ll ever see him in a Kings jersey.

On to the highlights…

Keep an eye out for Martinez wearing jersey number-4. And if you’re wondering why one guy on the team is wearing a gold helmet, that’s something special the team’s leading goal scorer gets to wear. Interesting.

Friday, October 12 – TPS def Lukko 4-2

Wednesday, October 10 – TPS lost 4-0 (There is some footage of Martinez included though.)

Tuesday, October 9 – TPS won 2-1 via a shootout (Here’s a quick clip showcasing one of the opposing players for JYP.  His goal celebration is awfully reminiscent of the one Corey Perry did a few years ago after scoring a game-winning goal vs the Kings at Staples Center.)

Also, we did a big interview with him from his home in Dallas, just before he left for Europe. You can find that feature piece here.
