Martin J. Walsh (October 16, 1884 - March 27, 1915) was a Canadian amateur, later professional, ice hockey forward who played for the Ottawa Senators, winning three Stanley Cups in 1909, 1910 and 1911 and is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. After his hockey-playing days were over, he moved to Edmonton to work and in 1914 fell ill and was in the Muskoka Sanatorium in March 1915 where he died.
Marty Walsh played hockey for Queen's University from 1902–1906 and in 1905 was a member of their championship team that year. He turned professional for the 1906–07 season with the Canadian Soo of the International Professional Hockey League (IPHL), playing only 7 games due to injury. In 1907, he joined the Ottawa Senators and played for the club for five seasons, winning three Stanley Cups in 1909, 1910, 1911. He was a high-scoring forward and in 1909, Marty scored 42 goals in 12 games. In 1911, he scored ten goals in a Stanley Cup challenge match against Port Arthur, second only to Frank McGee's 14 in one game. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1963.
