The Vermont men's hockey program will honor its all-time leading scorer by hosting Martin St. Louis Night on Friday, Jan. 8 when the Catamounts face former ECAC rival Dartmouth at 7:05 p.m. Martin St. Louis '97 will be in attendance to be recognized during a special pre-game presentation on the ice at Gutterson Fieldhouse.
During his four-year standout career at Vermont, St. Louis registered 267 points on 91 goals and 176 assists in 139 games. The forward led the Catamounts to their first-ever NCAA Frozen Four berth in 1996 and another NCAA Tournament appearance in 1997. For three straight seasons, St. Louis was named an All-American and a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award.
St. Louis went on to play 16 seasons in the NHL for the Calgary Flames, Tampa Bay Lightning, and New York Rangers. He finished his NHL career with 391 goals and 642 assists for 1,033 points in 1,134 regular season games. He and former UVM teammate Eric Perrin '97 combined to win the 2004 Stanley Cup with the Lightning. That same season, the forward captured the Art Ross Trophy, the Hart Trophy, and the Ted Lindsay Award.
