"First of all thank you so much for your nomination and support of my election.  Never did I think this would happen.  It is much appreciated and a tribute to all I have coached and worked with over the years.  I do not regret one minute of all my involvement in hockey and without it I wouldn't be where I am today.  The satisfaction of working with young student athletes and watching their development is one that not many get to experience.  The thrill of my 1980 team winning the State Championship is something that probably will never be repeated.  Two weeks after the USA stunned the world we moved into their locker room and repeated the feat.  Thirty-three years later people and players still talk about it.  Hockey has been my life and this honor means a lot.  Again, thank you for the condideration."  Butch Martin

 

Butch was inducted into the New York State High School Hockey- Hall of Fame, March 2013, for his dedication to the sport as a truly great coach and referee who has contributed noteworthy service to New York State high school hockey.
