Observations:

 

June 2013 - After scoring only 12 points in 32 games due to a mixture of the usual transition to playing against men, an influx of talent thanks to the lockout and an upper body injury, he scored at a .5 ppg pace for the rest of the year. That is quite respectable for a rookie AHL season and he earned himself some time on the powerplay. Watch for him to improve on his second half next year. - Austin Wallace

 

February, 2013 – Jordan Martinook is a versatile player that can line up in all three forward positions. Last season Martinook skated in all 72 games for a Vancouver Giants team that finished second in the BC division of the WHL. He finished second on his team in goals with 40, though his scoring totals may be bloated thanks to skating on the same line as Montreal prospect Brendan Gallagher. Martinook is able to score off the rush and through his solid offensive positioning. He has a pro shot and good skating ability. He is also not afraid to drop the gloves and has a sand-paper type game. There was some speculation that the Coyotes might return him to the Giants this year as an over-ager for some extra seasoning as he only spent two total years in the WHL, but they decided to bring him up to their AHL affiliate. This season he has struggled adjusting to life in the AHL, and has missed time due to an upper-body injury, scoring only a goal and an assist so far. He will need to refine his skating and work on his defensive play in the AHL.

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

 

Martinook has offensive pedigree and a chance at a more offensive role next year. We will have a clearer idea if he can be a scorer at the NHL level in a years time but for now has but modest value.
