Coach Alain Vigneault will likely move Martin St. Louis back to the wing on Sunday.
Vigneault had been experimenting with St. Louis at center between Rick Nash and Anthony Duclair but said he will decide after practice on Saturday as to whether or not St. Louis will return to right wing for Sunday's game. All this will become moot once Derek Stepan returns from his broken right fibula and returns to his rightful spot as first team center between St. Louis and Nash. Oct 18 - 7:55 AM

Look for Martin St. Louis or Derick Brassard to play the point on the power play according to coach Alain Vigneault.

Dan Boyle was on the point during the power play but his injury that will keep him out of the Rangers lineup for the next four-six weeks, will force Vigneault to use either St. Louis or Brassard on the point. The move should increase their assist totals as they will be setting up the power play.

Martin St. Louis recorded two assists in the Rangers' season opener.

The line of St. Louis, Rick Nash, and Chris Kreider seemed to mesh well in a 3-2 victory over the Blues. St. Louis had 30 goals and 69 points in 81 games last season.

Martin St. Louis will play between Rick Nash and Chris Kreider in Thursday's season opener.

"I think he'll be fine," coach Alain Vigneault said of St. Louis. "He's a real smart player. Other than not having taken a lot of faceoffs in his career, he knows how to play. He knows how to play whether he's the first forward on the forecheck or the first forward back in our zone so I'm real comfortable with him." The Rangers moved him to the middle because Derek Stepan is sidelined for at least the first 10 games of the year and Kevin Hayes won't be available for opening night.
Oct 9 - 6:32 PM

Martin St. Louis was experimented with at center during Wednesday's practice.

He just played in the middle while the Rangers worked on their power play, but coach Alain Vigneault said St. Louis will see time at center in five-on-five situations as well in at least one of the team's last two preseason games. The Rangers are willing to try new things with Derek Stepan sidelined by a broken left fibula.
Oct 1 - 5:08 PM

Martin St. Louis is willing to shift to center following Derek Stepan's leg injury.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault likely appreciates St. Louis' flexibility, but he probably won't take him up on that offer. Stepan is only out for four-to-six weeks and while that's significant, it's not so long of an absence to warrant St. Louis switching positions.

Martin St. Louis is happy to be starting the 2014-15 season as a New York Ranger.

The Rangers acquired St. Louis from Tampa Bay at the trade deadline so this will be the first training camp for the winger in a New York uniform. "It's nice to start from scratch and be part of the process and progression," St. Louis said. "I came in at a time when they had figured things out. You come in and just try to fit in. You don't want to disrupt anything. You find yourself a little bit on your heels instead of being on your toes. I think I play a lot better when I'm on my toes." St. Louis struggled with the Rangers during the regular season with only one goal and eight points in 19 games to give him 30 goals and 69 points on the season, but was better in the post-season as he had eight goals and 15 points in 25 games. At age 39, we expect a regression for St. Louis, but he still could get 60-65 points in 2014-15.
Sep 21 - 8:00 AM

The New York Rangers only away game against the Tampa Bay Lightning takes place on Nov. 26, setting the stage for a potentially emotional night for Martin St. Louis.

Naturally, injuries and other variables could mean that he might not even play at all. St. Louis seems to have a sense of the moment (he scored two goals after being snubbed by Team Canada, for instance), so Nov. 26 would be a no-brainer start for him, especially.
Jun 22 - 6:22 PM

Martin St. Louis has 11 game-winning goals in the playoffs.

He's tied with Daniel Alfredsson and Teemu Selanne for fifth place among active players. Jaromir Jagr (16), Patrick Marleau (15), Daniel Briere (13) and Johan Franzen (12) are the players who sit ahead of him on the list. St. Louis has three game winners in the 2014 playoffs.
Jun 12 - 5:53 PM

Martin St. Louis’ eighth goal of the playoffs stood tall as the game winner on Wednesday night as the Rangers avoided elimination by beating the Kings 2-1 at a rowdy Madison Square Garden.

The veteran shoveled home a juicy rebound on Jonathan Quick’s doorstep 6:27 into the second period to put the Rangers up 2-0. L.A. would go on to dominate the second half of the game and come within one, but St. Louis’ second goal of the series was all Henrik Lundqvist needed to secure New York’s first Stanley Cup Final victory since Game 7 at the Garden in 1994.
Jun 11 - 11:06 PM

Martin St. Louis sees the Rangers' 3-0 series deficit as an opportunity to do something special.

The Rangers are going to try to become just the second team in NHL history to overcome a 3-0 series deficit in the Stanley Cup Final. "We're going to take it one game at a time," St. Louis said. "It's all about momentum and we're looking to grab it tonight." He added that the Rangers are feeling upbeat going into Game 4 on Wednesday.
Jun 11 - 4:49 PM

Martin St. Louis leads all New York Ranger forwards in points with 14.

That is not a high total for the team leader as the Rangers have played 22 games. In comparison, St. Louis would be fifth on the Kings in points and the Kings were the sixth worst scoring team in the NHL during the regular season.
Jun 9 - 8:31 AM

Martin St. Louis scored once on Saturday but ended the game at minus-three.

The diminutive forward has seven goals and 14 points in the playoffs and is now minus-three in 22 games.

Martin St. Louis wasn't feeling down despite losing Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final

"We got a 2-0 lead early but by no means did you feel like they're not going to push. They push," he said. "This is a good team. I don't feel we gave it away, we did a lot of good things. We've got to correct the mistakes and get back at it. It's one game." The Kings scored three unanswered goals to take the Stanley Cup Final opener in overtime. St. Louis led the team's forward group with 21:06 of ice time in the contest. He finished the match with two shots.
Jun 5 - 9:17 AM

Martin St. Louis feels that the New York Rangers making it to the Stanley Cup Final reinforces his decision to request a trade from Tampa Bay.

"This is the reason why I came here," St. Louis said. "This is what I thought about when I came here. I thought that this group had the key element for this kind of experience, I thought I could add something, and it's tough to leave a team that you've been there for 13, 14 years, but it makes everything right, right now." This is St. Louis' second trip to the Stanley Cup Final with his first time coming during the Tampa Bay Lightning's 2004 championship-winning campaign. St. Louis has six goals and 13 points in 20 playoff games.
