He has been sitting on the bench watching Calvin Pickard and Semyon Varlamov play, and now Spencer Martin finally has the opportunity to prove himself on the NHL level. The 21 year old Oakville, Ontario native was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2013 NHL Draft in the third round with the 63rd pick.
In 27 games with the San Antonio Rampage this season, Martin has accumulated a goals-against-average of 2.62, and a save percentage of .915 all while holding a 15-9-0 record for the San Antonio Rampage.
The 21 year old goaltender can expect to see plenty of shots tonight against the San Jose Sharks, but for some reason it seems as if the Avs play better when there is a younger, less experienced goaltender in net. Things should be very, very interesting tonight in the Shark Tank.
We are rooting for you kid, show us what you can do!
