No matter which way you slice it, tonight was not the Tampa Bay Lightning’s night. However, there was a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Tampa Bay Lightning captain Martin St. Louis scored his 600th career assist.

As most of you already know, Martin St. Louis has been the driving force this season for the Tampa Bay Lightning in terms of scoring.

Marty has played in all 54 games the Lightning has encountered this season. In that time, he has scored 25 goals and 28 assists for a total of 53 points to go along with his plus-18 rating.

There is no denying that St. Louis is one of the most powerful assets the Bolts have in their arsenal right now. Prior to Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the captain was riding a 10 game point streak that stretches all the way back to January 7th in Winnipeg against the Winnipeg Jets.

Here is a look at the Victor Hedman goal that gave St. Louis his 600th Assist.

 

The 5’8” Laval, Quebec native has been with the Tampa Bay Lightning coming on 14 years. St. Louis was originally signed by the Tampa Bay Lightning as a Free Agent on July 21, 2000.

Congratulations to the Captain on achieving yet another milestone in what is bound to be his storied career!
