Sport: Men’s Hockey

Position: Forward

Age: 38

Hometown: Laval, Que.

NHL Team: Tampa Bay Lightning

Accomplishments:

  • 2004 Stanley Cup Champion.
  • 2003-2004 Hart Trophy winner as the NHL’s MVP.
  • Two-time Art Ross Trophy winner as the NHL’s leading scorer.
  • Three-time Lady Byng Trophy winner as the NHL’s most sportsmanlike player.
  • Six-time NHL All-Star.

Interesting Fact: St.Louis was not originally named to Team Canada, a decision surrounded by controversy: He led the league in scoring last year and carried his team after Stamkos was hurt. He’s been named to the team as a replacement after his Tampa Bay teammate Steven Stamkos was unable to compete due to injury. St. Louis recently notched his 600th career assist and is on pace to reach 1,000 career points later this year.
