Martin has proven valuable at every stop in his NHL career, a glue-type player who contributes at both ends of the ice.
After signing with the San Jose Sharks as a free agent July 1, 2015, Martin was an instant hit. Teamed with Brent Burns in a solid No. 1 defense pairing, Martin contributed 20 points and a plus-13 rating in 78 games. The combination was a key to the Sharks' run to the Stanley Cup Final.
