Andreas Martinsen leaves NHL for Europe

Tim Tucker   ·   27 janvier 2020
Andreas Martinsen, who has played a total of 152 games in the NHL, has decided to leave North America for Europe. It had been reported late last week that the Pittsburgh Penguins had placed Martinsen on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract. EV Zug, of Switzerland's National League, has announced Monday they have signed the winger for the remainder of the season.

Martinsen, 29, was acquired by Pittsburgh from the Anaheim Ducks in the Erik Gudbranson trade. Since being acquired, he played 24 games, all with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the AHL. Martinsen was placed primarily in a bottom-six role and recorded one goal and two assists this season.

Martinsen was never drafted, instead signing an entry-level contract with the Colorado Avalnache as a free agent in 2015. Over the course of the next few seasons, he played 110 games with Colorado, 22 with Chicago and nine with the Montreal Canadiens. He recorded nine goals and 15 assists during that time. The rest of his playing time was spent in the AHL.



"We still wanted a physical element on the offensive, where we are also less broad than in the defense. That is why we were looking for a large, physically strong sniper. Andreas Martinsen corresponds exactly to our requirement profile," said EV Zug sports director Reto Kläy in a news release. Martinsen, who is originally from Norway, is six-foot-three and weighs 229 lbs.
