Christian Marti (born March 29, 1993) is a Swiss professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the ZSC Lions of the National League A (NLA).

Playing career[edit]

Marti participated at the 2012 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships as a member of the Switzerland men's national junior ice hockey team. After transferring from the Kloten Flyers and playing two National League A seasons with Genève-Servette HC, Marti as an undrafted free agent, signed to an entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on May 1, 2015.[1]

In the 2015–16 season, Marti attended the Flyers training camp before he was reassigned to American Hockey League affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. In 27 games with the Phantoms, Marti registered 1 assist while also appearing in two games with the Reading Royals of the ECHL.

At the conclusion of his first North American season, Marti opted to leave the Flyers organization and return to his native Switzerland, signing a three-year deal with the ZSC Lions on June 14, 2016.[2]
