Brian Martin

Martin_Brian No player who appeared in 10 or more games in Admirals history averaged more points than Brian Martin. From the 1989-90 to 1993-94 seasons, Martin averaged 1.89 points per game, netting 171 goals and 347 points in 184 games with the Blue and Gold. He was part of two ECHL Admirals championship teams.

Martin came to Hampton Roads in a trade from the Greensboro Monarchs during the Admirals' inaugural season in 1989-90. That season, Martin ranked second on the team in goals (36), assists (39) and points (75). The following season, Martin netted 55 goals and 116 points in only 54 games with Hampton Roads as the Admirals captured their first Riley Cup Championship in 1991. His 55 goals in 1990-91 are the most in a single season in Admirals history. Despite appearing in only 28 games with Hampton Roads in 1991-92, Martin still averaged better than one goal and two points per game as the Admirals earned their second straight Riley Cup. The 1992-93 season would be Martin's last full season with the Admirals. In 49 games with Hampton Roads, Martin scored 50 goals and 102 points.

As of the 2011-12 season, there have only been three 50+ goal seasons in Admirals history and only four 100+ point seasons in Admirals history. The 1990-91 and 1992-93 seasons saw Martin eclipse both the 50-goal and 100-point plateau. Martin's 16 career hat tricks are the most in Admirals history and are double the total of the next-closest player on the list. Martin's 35-game point scoring streak in 1990-91 stands as the second-longest point streak in ECHL history. In his ECHL career between Hampton Roads and Greensboro, Martin averaged 1.85 points per game the highest such average in ECHL history among players with 350 or more points. His 0.91 goals-per-game average is the second-best average in ECHL history.

In ECHL Admirals history, Martin ranks second all time in goals (171), third in assists (176) and third in points (347). The St. Catharines, Ontario native also played 46 career AHL games in five seasons with New Haven, Halifax, Utica, Moncton, Maine and Baltimore, where he scored 17 goals and 37 points. Martin was selected in the 12th round (232nd overall) by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft. He retired after playing three games with Hampton Roads in 1993-94.
