Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Martin Jones
Martin Jones was born on January 10, 1990 in North Vancouver, British Columbia. Drafted in the fourth round pick of the 2005 WHL Bantam Draft crafted his style between the pipes with the Calgary Hitmen.

To start his WHL career he would serve as Calgaryís backup goalie for two years before taking over the net for the 2008-09 season. During his first year as a full-time goalie, he broke the Hitmenís win record by a goalie with a 45-5-4 record. In the playoffs he helped the team win a league tying record of 12 playoff games in a row before falling to the Kelowna Rockets in the WHL Championship in six games.

Having been passed over in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Jones was offered a try-out with the Los Angeles Kings. He impressed management enough for them to award him with a three year entry level contract. He began his professional career during the 2010-11 season playing one game with the ECHLís Ontario Reign and the rest of the season with the AHLís Manchester Monarchs. In that first season with the Monarchs he was named an AHL all-star with a 1.93 GAA and a 16-3-0 record prior to the break.

At the beginning of the 2013-14 season, Jones began with the Manchester Monarchs. However, due to an injury to Kingsí starting goalie, Jonathan Quick, Jones was called up to be the backup for Ben Scrivens. On December 3, 2013 Jones would make his debut in the NHL, beating the Anaheim Ducks 3-2. Shortly after that the Los Angeles Kings traded Scrivens to the Edmonton Oilers, giving Jones full time work in the NHL as backup to Jonathan Quick. It was during this season Jones would help the Kings win their second Stanley Cup in three years.

On June 26, 2015 Jones was going to be a restricted free agent. Due to cap restraints, the Kings traded Jones, Colin Miller and a first round draft choice to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Milan Lucic. Four days later the Bruins, already having starter Tuuka Rask, then traded Jones to the San Jose Sharks for Sean Kuraly and a first round draft choice.

Jones would appear in 65 games in his first season in San Jose, establishing himself as a legitimate number one goaltender. He finished the season with a 2.27 goals-against-average his 37 wins were third most in the league.

Internationally, Jones has represented Canada twice in his career. He backed up Jake Allen during the 2010 World Junior Championship in Saskatoon, winning a silver medal. He also shared the net with Mike Smith in Canadaís gold medal-winning performance at the 2015 World Championship in the Czech Republic.
