Number 48: Jordan “Marty Party” Martinook

Jordan Martinook, fondly referred to as the Marty Party, has stepped up to the role of team dad in the absence of Justin Williams. He wears an alternate captain’s “A”, loves practical jokes, and is a crucial element to the Hurricanes’ heart and soul. While he is not an offensive powerhouse, his physicality and personality both were missed in his recent injury-related absence.

While only in his second term in the red and black after being acquired from Arizona, he is by far one of the most impactful players not on the score sheet. If you’re looking to add a lesser represented letter sweater to your collection, look no further than Martinook.
