BC Hockey 100 Great Moments: Seth Martin
Monday, January 28, 2019

Seth Martin was born in Rossland, BC in 1933 and played for Canada internationally on a number of occasions, at both the World Championships and the Olympics. 

Seth was the goaltender for the 1961 Trail Smoke Eaters, when they represented Canada, and won the last World Championship with an amateur hockey team.  He was named top goalie at the tournament and voted the goaltender for the media’s All-Star Team. 

Martin played one (1) season for the St. Louis Blues in the National Hockey League (NHL), as their backup goalie.  That season, the Blues made it to the Stanley Cup final, but dropped four (4) straight games to the Montreal Canadiens.  

Seth Martin was inducted to the International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Fame in 1997, and was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 1988.  Martin won an Allan Cup in net for the Smoke Eaters, where he spent the majority of his career.  He won a second Allan Cup as the coach for Spokane in 1972.
