If Martin clears at noon Eastern Tuesday, the Sharks could assign him to the American Hockey League's San Jose Barracuda, who share the same home arena.
Analysis: An ankle injury and illness have limited Martin to three games this season and none since Dec. 7. The 36-year-old did not register a point in any of those games. Martin is likely to clear waivers because of his $4.85 million cap hit for this season and next. He has 318 points in 859 regular-season NHL games with the New Jersey Devils, Pittsburgh Penguins and Sharks.
