A stunning infographic detailing Martin St. Louis‘ amazing ride to the Art Ross Trophy throughout the 2012-13 season was released today by the Tampa Bay Lightning. It details miscellaneous facts about Marty, and also breaks down every single goal that he scored in the season. A similar infograph was released at the end of last season with Steven Stamkos‘ 60 goals. The image was used on posters that were given away at radio show events. I’m hoping that they will do the same with Marty’s.
It’s a nice poster waiting to be made. However, I’d of picked a different picture of Marty personally. One of him smiling. Perhaps they wanted to catch the ‘real’ Martin St. Louis; the serious Martin St. Louis.
It breaks down to this:
Martin St. Louis has become the oldest player in NHL history to be awarded the Art Ross Trophy, which is given to the league’s player with the most points. This is the second time that he has received it. The first time was back in the championship 2003-04 season. With a span in between of 9 years, this is the longest span of the only 12 players before Marty to win the Art Ross more than once.
Marty recorded 43 assists, the most in the NHL for the season. He notched 17 goals, 2nd on the team behind Steven Stamkos. 26 points on the road makes him the 3rd in the league behind Alex Ovechkin and Patrick Kane. He is tied with Steven Stamkos for the most points at home in the NHL with 34.
Martin St. Louis breaks the record for oldest player to receive the Art Ross held by Bill Cook for 80 years. He was 36 when he won the trophy back in 1932-33 when he played for the New York Rangers. Gordie Howe was 35 and played for the Detroit RedWings when he got it in 1962-63. At the age of 32 in a Pittsburgh Penguins uniform, it went to Mario Lemieux.
Marty ranked 5th in the league for Power Play assists with 17.
On April 24 against the Toronto Maple Leafs Marty got his 7th career hattrick at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. The Lightning won that one 5-2.
