Martin St. Louis Interview - 2009 NHL Awards

Last week we met with Hart, Art Ross, Pearson, Plus/Minus, and Stanley Cup winner Martin St. Louis at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas to discuss how he spent his day with the Cup when the Lightning struck in 2004. These are his stories.

Q: I heard a rumor that you brought the Stanley Cup back to your alma matter the University of Vermont during your day with the trophy.
A: Yeah, I hired the Samples to play a private party and Phish showed up. I had a photo shoot with Trey Anastasio for a magazine and I told him you know if you want bring your band and come see the Cup. And they just showed up. They actually got on stage and played with the Samples for three or four songs.

Q: How do you know Trey?
A: I know Trey from being alums there I guess. It’s not like we were close friends but when there was some concert close I’d go and chat with him backstage.

Q: Are you a Phish fan?
A: Yeah, I definitely like some of their songs. They’re very creative.

Q: What other kinds of music do you listen to?
A: I love the Samples. A little bit of everything. I can’t say that I just stick to one thing.

Many thanks to Marty for speaking with us. Best of luck next season.
