Martin is the son of Normand St. Louis and his wife France; he grew up with his sister, Isabelle in his native Laval. Before college, he played in midget age tournaments showing his skills, but due to his small stature, most teams feared that he would be easily stopped on the ice by defensive players. However, after showing his a real deal, many Universities fought for his signature, and he joined the University of Vermont. During his three years at Vermont, Martin won numerous accolades and recognitions, and thanks to his 267 points he became an all-time leader of the University. He won the ECAC Player of the Year in the 1994-1995 season, and after three extremely successful years at Vermont, Martin received numerous offers from the NHL teams, however, he decided to finish studies and then try himself in the NHL.

Following the 1996-1997 season at the University, none of the NHL teams had a contract offer for young Martin, so eventually, he joined the Cleveland Lumberjacks of the International Hockey League, and after 56 games, 16 goals scored and 34 assists, he received a contract offer from the Saint John Flames of the American Hockey League, and after 25 games with them he was given a chance in the NHL, playing for the Calgary Flames. Unfortunately, he wasn’t good enough and was sent back to the Saint John Flames, where he spent two additional seasons, before again returning to the Flames. Sadly, his improvements still weren’t enough, and he was an unrestricted free agent following the 1999-2000 season.

This turned out to be good for Martin, as he signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning, and though he struggled in the beginning and went through a leg injury, he had a breakthrough season in 2002-2003 when he played in all 82 games, scoring 38 goals and making 56 assists. From then, he became one of the main players of the franchise, leading them to the Stanley Cup trophy in 2004, while the same year he won the Art Ross and Hart Memorial Trophies, and by that became the first player to achieve such since the legendary Wayne Gretzky in the 1986-1987 season.

He played for the Tampa Bay Lightning until 2014 when he was sent to the New York Rangers, but before the move, he won several other awards and recognitions, including appearing six times in the NHL All-Star Game. He played for two seasons with his new team, without major success, and after not being offered a new contract from the Rangers or any other NHL team, he decided to retire from hockey. He finished his career with 1,134 regular games and 1,033 points.

On 13th January 2017 he became the first player in the Tampa Bay Lightning franchise history to have his jersey retired.

Aside from a successful club career, Martin also played for the Canadian national ice hockey team, winning gold medals at the World Cup in 2004, and at the Olympic Games in 2014
Regarding his personal life, Martin has been married to Heather Caragol since 2000; the couple has three children together.
