Pit Martin was a fast, clean, two-way center with a ton of talent. Yet it’s not his skills that I think about when I look at this photo. I find it impossible not to imagine his tragic death.
Hubert Jacques “Pit” Martin died a week shy of his 65th birthday after his snowmobile fell through the ice on Lake Kanasuta near his hometown of Noranda, Quebec. Such a scary way to go.
