Martin (undisclosed) will play in the playoff opener versus Washington on Wednesday, according to Newsday.

Martin had missed the last couple of Islanders games due to an undisclosed injury but practiced Monday and stated that he felt "great" and is ready to go. Martin led the NHL in hits this season and will be relied upon to be a physical presence against a Washington team that also likes to play a physical game.

Martin (undisclosed) is not with the team. in Pittsburgh and won't play Friday.

This is not a surprise as Martin was never expected to play. The Islanders are playing it very close to the vest with their injuries so there is no word on when Martin could return to the lineup. The Islanders clinched a playoff spot Thursday and could choose to play it safe with their injured players to make sure they are healthy for the start of the playoffs.

Martin (undisclosed) is unlikely to play Friday versus the Penguins, according to Newsday.

Martin hasn't practiced since suffering the injury and with the Islanders history of playing it safe with their injuries, he may not play until he does practice or unless Saturday becomes a must win to get into the playoffs.

Martin is nursing a minor injury and will miss Tuesday's match against the Flyers.

The fourth-line tough guy was limited to just 8:49 of ice time in the Isles' last game Saturday against the Sabres and will now sit out for his second match of the season. It's not expected that the injury will cost Martin action beyond Tuesday, so those looking for help in the PIM and hit categories may still want to keep Martin on call for the final two games of the season.

Martin (suspension) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Panthers, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Martin was suspended for Thursday's game versus the Predators after he laid an illegal hit on the Stars' Trevor Daley two nights earlier. The winger's abrasive style of play occasionally results in the league office laying down the hammer, but when he's on the ice, Martin is an asset in specialty formats. He leads the league with an astounding 318 hits and ranks seventh in PIM (114).
