Martin St. Louis (French pronunciation: ; born June 18, 1975) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger and alternate captain currently playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League (NHL).
St. Louis grew up in Laval, Quebec playing minor hockey and eventually made it onto the AAA Midget Laval Laurentides in 1991-92. After a strong season in Midget, he was signed by the Hawkesbury Hawks Jr.A. hockey club of the Central Junior Hockey League (CJHL) in Ontario. After a strong year with the Hawks (37-50-87 in just 31 games), St. Louis accepted an NCAA scholarship with the University of Vermont.
As an amateur, St. Louis played for the University of Vermont Catamounts on the same team as Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas, and on the same line as former Tampa Bay Lightning teammate Éric Perrin. St. Louis was an NCAA All-Star and three-time Hobey Baker Award finalist for college player of the year. He ranks first amongst all Vermont scorers in career points (267) and assists (176), and ranks third in career goals (91).
