When watching Martino, you can tell he likes having the puck on his stick and is always hungry for offense. He understands how to find open lanes very well and is constantly taking advantage when space is given to him. He will wear you down by just collecting the puck and coming right back at you immediately. It allows him to slip behind defensively and pick pocket the puck too. He reads the play very well and is constantly anticipating the play, trying to get an extra step ahead of opponents. He has very quick feet and is able to generate acceleration very efficiently, being a constant threat and keeping defenders on their toes. He is able to handle the puck well through the neutral zone and made offensive zone entries with control and also showed some skill with a nice toe-drag around a defender to show off some flash to his game. In the neutral zone, he is constantly turning so as to not lose momentum. He is always aware of who has the puck and his positioning since he wants to receive a pass already moving with speed towards the Ozone. Whether that is jumping the zone or just a few strides to start him off, he wants to be dangerous immediately. He has short crossover strides and he doesn’t use the length or power of his stride anywhere near to what he could but relies on this constant motion and shifting positioning to be elusive. It helps him be deceptive as it is hard to keep check on a player who never stands still. Martino could show more effort and engagement in board battles, a stronger use of his shot when his team has zone possession, and him engaging more defensively instead of always trying to get a step. Overall, he’ll need to be more engaged in the defensive zone and challenge opponents more. He applies good pressure at times and can show the ability to make a nice takeaway with a stick lift, but it just needs to be more consistent. A red flag with Martino is that it seems like he’s thinking about what he’s going to do in the offensive zone before even having the puck, which does raise concerns about his defensive awareness and commitment.
