If I could use one word to describe Martin Marincin, I would say he’s mysteriously interesting. I believe that because we never really get to know too much about him, or even see him off of the ice.
No social media presence, rarely any interviews (other than when he scored that incredible goal against the Vancouver Canucks) and when he’s playing, you don’t get to see very much of him until he makes himself known, which could be good or bad.
He played 26 games this season, averaged the same amount of ice-time as his last, but had one less point. The only difference maker though was his highlight-reel goal in February.
But a lot of you may be wondering, why write a summer preview for Marincin?
Well, he’s still a very important member to the team because if a player goes down with an injury, the 28-year-old is a possibility to be inserted into the lineup.
A lot of that though depends on the role being given. If it’s a key penalty killing defenceman that goes down, such as Justin Holl or Jake Muzzin, we could see Marincin …
