Jacques Martin '75, head coach of the National Hockey League's Ottawa Senators, will coach the NHL East All-Star team.

The NHL made the announcement January 9, also stating that Marc Crawford, Vancouver's coach, will lead the Western Conference. The head coach and assistant coach of the two teams with the best points percentages for games played through January 8 determined the positions in each conference. Philadelphia's Ken Hitchcock will serve as Martin's assistant.

The All-Star game will be played in Sunrise, Fla. -- home of the Florida Panthers -- on Feb. 2.

The Associated Press stated, "Martin has done a remarkable job with the Senators (25-10-5-1), who lead the East while financial troubles surround the team. Ottawa's loss to Vancouver was just the Senators' fourth in regulation in 29 games."

Martin holds a bachelor's degree from St. Lawrence in sport and leisure studies and French, as well as a master's degree from the University of Ottawa. In addition to playing hockey while a student, he was a member of Sigma Pi Kappa fraternity. He is scheduled to attend a University alumni event in Sunrise, Florida, on January 22, when the Senators play the Panthers.
