Martin is reliable and steady blueliner, both while defending and helping his team transition. He moves pucks up the ice and out of the defensive zone with confidence. He will take some risks, but while still remaining reliable and not giving up many scoring chances against. He is able to create offensive zone entries, both by himself with control and by finding an open teammate in the neutral zone and making accurate passes to break out, and when he does find himself behind the play he shows great effort to backcheck.  He is able to make many smart decisions in the defensive zone that lead to zone exits, looking very confident while under pressure and staying focused on what he needs to do. While transitioning the puck he is fairly efficient and does a good job connecting on his breakout passes while also showing the poise and patience to avoid opposing forecheckers. He displays good mobility, but is lacking a bit of an extra step, not being able to consistently win foot races. He’s agile though, and because of his strong edges he’s able to quickly cover gaps. Though not a dynamic skater, he is fairly fluid on his feet. He can limit time and space for opposing attackers, breaking up opposing offensive transitions and denying zone entries. Is very effective on the penalty kill. While short-handed he takes away space and time, applying good pressure and using his stick actively to try to poke and steal the puck away or block passing lanes. He brings good intensity in the front of the net, battling hard with opponents for space and being able to tie up their sticks effectively. He reads the play very well and anticipates where the puck is going, being able to get to pucks before opponents. He is able to hold the line well offensively, keeping pucks in the zone, albeit simply. His ceiling might be low, but there is a quiet effectiveness to Martin’s game.
