Martin St. Louis said that there was no one thing that led to his retirement, but his family appears to be among the motivating factors.
"They're getting to an age right now where I've been missing a lot of their stuff, and that time you can't get back," St. Louis said. "That played a huge part in my decision." He feels like he could have still contributed at the NHL level if he wanted to, which isn't hard to believe after he scored 21 goals and 52 points in 74 contests last season. Jul 20 - 10:46 PM

Martin St. Louis has decided to hang up his skates.

"I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride," St. Louis said. "I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years." St. Louis had 391 goals and 1,033 points in 1,134 games with the Calgary Flames, Lightning, and Rangers. He won the Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay award after scoring 38 goals and a league-leading 94 points in 82 contests back in 2003-04. He won the Art Ross Trophy again more than a decade later with 60 points in 48 contests in the lockout shortened 2013 season. He's also a three-time Lady Byng winner and a Stanley Cup champion.

Pittsburgh has apparently decided against pursuing pending unrestricted free agent Martin St. Louis.

The veteran winger will become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday and New Jersey remains a strongly rumored possibility.
Jun 30 - 5:02 PM

The New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins might be among the teams that make a serious push for Martin St. Louis as an unrestricted free agent, per the New York Posts' Larry Brooks.

Brooks reiterated his previous assertion that St. Louis will not be re-signing with the New York Rangers. Assuming that the Rangers aren't an option, the Devils might have an edge for geographical reasons as it would keep him close to his family in Greenwich, Conn. That being said, the Penguins have the better shot of winning the Cup in the short-term and that might be enough to tip the scales in their favor.

Martin St. Louis will reportedly not be back with the Rangers next season.

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the Blueshirts and St. Louis are prepared to go their separate ways. It's still unclear if the veteran winger will choose continue his career. St. Louis will turn 40 years of age this Thursday and he's coming off a rather pedestrian season for his standards.

Martin St. Louis needs time to weigh his options before deciding if he'll return for the 2015-16 campaign.

"It sort of works perfectly for both sides," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. "He is going to think about it, and we will find out where we are money-wise and then go from there." The Rangers aren't expected to have much cap space to spare, so if St. Louis is going to re-sign with the Rangers, it will probably have to be at a discount. He had 21 goals and 52 points in 74 games, but he's about to turn 40 so it wouldn't be surprising to see him decline next season if he decides to play.

Do not expect to see Martin St. Louis back in a New York Rangers uniform next season.

The soon to be 40-year-old certainly is nearing the end of his career and he could retire rather than testing free agency. St. Louis managed only one goal in 18 playoff games this season after scoring 21 goals and 52 points in the regular season. The undrafted St. Louis certainly had a great NHL career as he has 391 goals and 1,033 points in 1,134 regular season games.

Martin St. Louis scored his first goal of the playoffs on Friday.

It was a power play effort for the 39-year-old veteran who now has seven points in 16 post-season games this year. It has been a disappointing performance offensively for St. Louis who is definitely on the down side of his NHL career and should be drafted in the middle to late rounds of pools next season.

Martin St. Louis is projected to remain on the third line for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final.

He played on the third line Saturday against Tampa Bay in the first game of the series. St. Louis is still looking for his first goal of the postseason. He has never scored fewer than three goals in his previous six playoff runs and that total came in six contests when he had eight points.

Martin St. Louis was placed on the third line for Game 1 Saturday.

The winger moved down from the first line as he played alongside Carl Hagelin and Dominic Moore. "After looking at games from both of [the Lightning’s first two] series, we just felt that a subtle little change in right wingers on two lines would maybe help us out," coach Alain Vigneault said. St. Louis did not have a shot on goal in Game 1.

As it turns out, Martin St. Louis isn't beginning Game 1 on the New York Rangers' top line.

Instead, it's Kevin Hayes who's skating with Rick Nash and Derick Brassard on the first trio while St. Louis is on with Carl Hagelin and Dominic Moore.

Martin St. Louis was back on the first line in practice Friday.

St. Louis was benched in the third period of Game 7 against Washington as J.T. Miller took his spot on a line with Derick Brassard and Rick Nash but coach Alain Vigneault put Miller back on the fourth line in practice and returned St. Louis to his so-called rightful spot. Stay tuned on Saturday for Game 1 to see if the lineup change remains in effect.

Martin St. Louis scored a pair of goals during the three games between the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2014-15 regular season.

These weren't the first three games against his old Tampa Bay club, however. If you'll recall, St. Louis was originally began his career with Calgary after signing as an undrafted 23 year old free agent in 1998. However, he didn't score in those two games. St. Louis recorded 21 goals and 52 points in 74 games for the Rangers this season, but has just a quartet of assists in a dozen postseason games.

The veteran winger has no goals and four assists after 12 playoff games.

Martin St. Louis recorded an assist in Game 4.

He set up Derick Brassard for the Rangers' lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Washington Capitals. St. Louis doesn't have a goal in nine contests this postseason and he's earned just three assists. He's eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer and could be looking for a new team shortly if New York doesn't rally from a 3-1 series deficit.
