Fantasy Hockey: RW Martin St. Louis Heating Up In March

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In fantasy hockey circles, Tampa Bay Lightning RW Martin St. Louis has been an elite option ever since the sport was invented. He is good for 70-plus points a season and is one of the elite fantasy producers at his position.

Between 2002-2011, St. Louis played in at least 77 games each season. He also has six seasons with over 80 points, including four seasons with over 93 points. The 37-year old has been producing for so long that fantasy owners have started to overlook his consistency.

In 14 games last month, St. Louis racked up 13 points, including two goals and 11 assists. It was a very nice showing, but the six-time NHL All-Star has surprisingly outdone himself this month.

In March, St. Louis has already totaled 13 points in just nine games. It is even more amazing because he did it all while only shooting the puck seven times all month long.

Actually, in his last ten games, St. Louis has incredibly scored three goals with 11 assists. He even added three power play points during this stretch. St. Louis is simply on fire this month, and the forward is in the middle of another All-Star fantasy campaign.

St. Louis remains an everyday starter in fantasy hockey leagues. He will average close to a point per game and will lace up his skates every night. St. Louis is still one of the elite wingers in all of fantasy.
