My write up just got deleted because my computer sucks...
Rossland is going to try to select all the best remaining West Kootenay players so we're going with power forward
and star senior goalie
Deadmarsh had a very strong PF career before concussions destroyed it far too early. His legacy would be much stronger had he been able to play out the career he deserved, but that being said he made a very strong contribution while he was still around. Deadmarsh was a big part of a Cup win in Colorado.
Martin was a legendary senior goaltender who could've made a bigger mark in the NHL easily. Had one strong year there with the Blues but didn't persue it hard. Took Trail to the World Championship and Allan Cup. Martin at legends of hockey:
Goalie Seth Martin played 30 games for the expansion St. Louis Blues in 1967-68. He spent over two decades in the game and was best known as a top senior player for the Trail Smoke Eaters and a valuable international performer for Canada.
Born in Rossland, BC, Martin was a junior standout in the WCJHL with the Lethbridge Native Sons. In 1953-54 he played 28 games for the Smoke Eaters, which began a full time association that lasted nearly ten years. Martin backstopped the team to a number of WIHL titles and was on hand when they won the gold medal while representing Canada at the 1961 World Championships. He also helped Trail win the 1962 Allan Cup and played for his country at the 1963 World tourney and the 1964 Innsbruck Olympics as part of the formative period of the national team program.
Martin next suited up for his home town Rossland Warriors for three years. He also helped Canada win the bronze medal at the 1966 and 1967 World Championships. In June 1967 he signed as a free agent with the St. Louis Blues as they were mobilizing for their first NHL season. The steady veteran played 30 games for the club as Glenn Hall's reserve and made two post-season appearances when the team reached the Stanley Cup final.
