George Kuhn Hubert Jacques "Pit" Martin was born on this date, December 9th in 1943. He was the captain for the Chicago Black Hawks 1975 to 1977. He was an NHL All-Star and Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy winner. Martin played seventeen seasons in the NHL for the Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins, Chicago Black Hawks and Vancouver Canucks.

Martin was nicknamed Pit after a comic strip character in a French newspaper, Martin was scouted by former NHL goaltender Wilf Cude and was the 1962 MVP and first all star team center of the Ontario Hockey Associations Jr. A league.

He was involved in one of the most one sided trades in history. In May 1967, Martin, along with Gilles Marotte and Jack Norris, was traded from Boston to Chicago for Phil Esposito, Ken Hodge, and Fred Stanfield, who would become core elements of future Boston powerhouse teams. Martin himself was a bright spot of the trade for the Black Hawks, starring for them for ten seasons as a skilled two way center and being named to play in the NHL All-Star Game in four straight seasons.

Martin played 1101 career NHL games from 1961–62 to 1978–79 scoring 324 goals and 485 assists for 809 points. His best statistical season was 1972–73 when he had a career best 61 assists and 90 points, adding ten goals in the playoffs as the Hawks made it to the Stanley Cup finals. He wore number 7.
