Martin St. Louis has long been regarded as the heart and soul of the Lightning organization. With his commitment, leadership, and undeniable top notch performance, he is a shining example to the younger generation of Lightning players.
The Laval, Quebec native was acquired by the Tampa Bay Lightning as Free Agent on July 31, 2000.
During the regular season, St. Louis found the back of the opposing team’s net 17 times and had a NHL leading 43 assists for a total of 60 points.
This season, St. Louis spent a riveting total of 14 minutes in the penalty box. Keeping his low infractions in mind, and taking into account his tremendous level of play this season, it is no surprise that St. Louis walked away with the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy.
This is the third time that Marty has been awarded this honor in the last four years. He also won the award in the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons.
