      Four-time All-Star Hubert "Pit" Martin feared dead
      MONTREAL (TICKER) —Hubert "Pit" Martin, a four-time NHL All-Star in
      the 1960s and '70s, is feared dead as a result of a snowmobile accident,
      police told PA SportsTicker on Monday.

      Marie-Josee Ouellet, a spokeswoman for the Quebec provincial police,
      said Martin, 64, was driving his vehicle on a lake in northwestern
      Quebec when the ice cracked and he plunged into the water.

      A team of divers will attempt to retrieve Martin's body on Monday.

      Martin, who was set to turn 65 next week, played in 1,101 games with the
      Detroit Red Wings

      fgM6> from 1963-79, registering 324 goals and 809 points. He was an
      All-Star in each campaign from 1971-74.

      In 1967, Martin was part of one of the most lopsided trades in league
      history, when he was shipped from Boston to Chicago in a deal that sent
      Phil Esposito, Ken Hodge and Fred Stanfield to Boston.

      The trade marked a turning point for the Bruins, who won Stanley Cups in
      1969-70 and 1971-72.

      Martin enjoyed his best season with the Blackhawks in 1972-73,
      collecting a career-high 90 points (29 goals, 61 assists).
