Radek Martínek (born August 31, 1976) is a Czech professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently an unrestricted free agent, having most recently played for the New York Islanders in the National Hockey League (NHL).
Martínek was an eighth-round selection, 228th overall, by the New York Islanders in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. After playing professionally for five seasons in his native Czech Extraliga with HC České Budějovice, he joined the Islanders in 2001 and entrenched himself as a mainstay on the blueline. With the exception of Rick DiPietro, Martínek had the longest tenure with the Islanders of any current player until he was signed as a free agent by the Columbus Blue Jackets on July 6, 2011.
In returning to health and as a free agent with the NHL lockout in effect, Martínek signed as he did during the previous lockout with his Czech team, České Budějovice, on September 19, 2012. He appeared in only four games with the club before he left to return to North America. With an agreement in place to end the labour dispute, Martínek was signed to a one-year deal with his former team, the New York Islanders, to add depth and compete for the final defensive spot on January 13, 2013.
