The Winnipeg native is in his second year with the Americans and has a 1-1 record this season as a back-up with a 2.73 GAA and a shutout.

He was a teammate of Kyle Mulder with the Winnipeg Thrashers club that went to the Telus Cup finals in 2008.

Martyniuk will join the Pats as they finish their road trip through the Central Division. The next action is tomorrow night as they take on the Kootenay Ice. It’s a 5:35 pre-game show start on CKRM with the puck dropping at 6pm.
