Andreas Martinsen was born on June 13, 1990, in Bærum, Norway. A product of Norway's top league, the GET-ligaen, Martinsen was undrafted by an NHL club and instead signed as a free agent with the Colorado Avalanche on May 15, 2015.

Martinsen made his North American debut in the American Hockey League for the Avalanche's affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage to start the 2015-16 season. After just nine games for the club he was recalled by the Avalanche and would make his NHL debut on November 10, 2015, in a 4-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. He remained with the Avalanche for the remainder of the season, appearing in 55 games for club, scoring four times and adding seven assists, while providing Colorado with a physical presence.

On March 1, 2017, Martinsen's time in the Avalanche organization would come to an end. He was traded to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Sven Andrighetto. Prior to the start of the 2017-18 season, Martinsen was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks and would begin the season with the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL.

Internationally, Martinsen represented his native Norway on numerous occasions including the 2016 World Championship where he scored a pair of goals.
