Martin was a Stanley Cup Champion with the Tampa Bay Lightning back in 2003-04 under John Tortorella. St. Louis was a six-time NHL All-Star and won multiple NHL Awards including two Art Ross trophies and three Lady Byngs, as well as the Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award.

The Rangers traded for St. Louis in 2014, in a deal that sent the Tampa captain to NY in exchange for Rangers captain Ryan Callahan. St. Louis took some time before scoring his first Rangers goal, a shorthanded tally in Vancouver. But Marty saved his best for the postseason, helping the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 20 years. Though it was a short stint with the Rangers before his retirement, St. Louis scored two of the more memorable goals in recent Rangers history.
From Rangers fans everywhere, Congrats Marty!
