Martinez (concussion), who was activated from injured reserve Friday, will not play Saturday against the Canucks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Though Martinez's concussion symptoms seem to be behind him, coach Darryl Sutter was reluctant to break up his top three defensive pairings in advance of Saturday's critical Western Conference matchup. While Martinez figures to get back in the lineup during the team's road trip that begins Monday, he may struggle to find a regular role with the Kings over the remainder of the season.

Martinez (concussion) was activated from injured reserve Friday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Though Martinez appears to be over the concussion-like symptoms that have kept him out of the Kings' previous 18 games, it doesn't necessarily mean that he'll play Saturday against the Canucks. Martinez practiced Friday with the team as part of a fourth defensive pairing with Jamie McBain, who has served as a healthy scratch over the Kings' past several contests. With the Kings not holding a morning skate Saturday due to the afternoon start time of the game, official word on Martinez's status likely won't come until warmups. Nonetheless, his pending return should bolster the Kings' chances of claiming one of the final two wild-card spots out West. The blueliner has accumulated five goals and 17 points in 45 games, while his 79 shots on goal have already tied his career-best mark from a season ago.
