Seth Martin (born May 4, 1933) is a retired ice hockey player. He played professionally for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League. He was inducted into the International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Fame in 1997.
Seth Martin helped the Trail Smoke Eaters win the 1961 World Ice Hockey Championships as the last amateur team to win the World Championships from Canada. He was named the best goaltender of the tournament. Seth, or "Seeth" as he was called in Europe by his many adoring fans, also played in four more World Championships with the Trail Smoke Eaters where he was named best goaltender in three of the four tournaments.
After the season Martin had to choose between continuing his NHL career and keeping his firefighters pension. He chose the latter and moved back to Trail, British Columbia but continued to play hockey and eventually coach.
