News: Martin collected a pair of power-play assists Wednesday against the Red Wings. Impact: He had just one point in three games since returning from a broken hand prior to Wednesday. Martin blocked three shots and registered two shots, finishing with a minus-2 rating. He saw 27:33 TOI in a game that went a shootout, nearly five minutes more than the next closest Penguins play (Brooks Orpik, 22:54 TOI). Martin's two-assist night was his first of the season (37 games).(RotoWire, )

News: Along with Matt Niskanen, Martin will remain at the point on Pittsburgh's top power-play unit Wednesday, according to the Penguins' website. Impact: Martin picked up an assist in his first game back from a broken hand Thursday, but has been shut out in the last two games. He should benefit Wednesday from the expected return of Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz to the No. 1 power-play unit.(RotoWire, )

News: Martin picked up his first power-play goal of the year -- and second game-winner -- Thursday against the Jets. It was his first game back after an 18-game IR stint due to a hand injury. Impact: He added a season-high three hits and two blocks in his first action since early February. Martin led all Pittsburgh blueliners with 23:46 TOI and played on the No. 1 power-play unit. He makes for a great waiver-wire grab if he was cut loose in your league.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Dan Blysma confirmed Martin (hand) will play Thursday against the Jets. Impact: With his injured hand no longer presenting any obstacles in his stick handling, Martin will join the Penguins' lineup for the first time since Feb. 7. Martin was averaging 24:23 of ice time for the Penguins before the injury and should be tabbed for a similarly large role immediately upon returning.(RotoWire, )

News: Martin (hand) appears likely to return to the Pittsburgh lineup Thursday against the Jets, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: In addition to skating as part of a defensive pairing, Martin ran the top power-play unit for the Pens, a sign that would typically indicate he's in the lineup. Martin said after practice that he's "ready to go" for Thursday, but we'll wait for his removal from injured reserve before confirming his return.(RotoWire, )
