The Lightning will be retiring the #26 on January 13, 2017.  This will the first time the franchise will retire a number.  It belongs to Martin St. Louis.

Here are a few highlights of his career.

  • 6 all star appearances 
  • Received two Art Ross Trophy's  
  • Played on three teams.  The Flames, the Lightning and the Rangers
  • 365 career goals and a total of 953 points
  • Stanley Cup 2004
I could go on and on about all his accomplishments.   But the franchise retiring his number might be the biggest, well that or the Stanley Cup.
