His proven track record in coaching, recruiting and player promotion have spanned across teams at; NCAA D1, USHL, NAHL, JR. A, and AAA levels. Marty has managed and ran four USHL Drafts and four NAHL Drafts, making a name for himself by identifying the top prospects in the country as well as guys who fly under the radar. Some examples being Tim Kennedy (Drafted by the Buffalo Sabres), Drake Caggiula (Buffalo Sabres), Kevin Labanc (Drafted by San Jose Sharks) and Jeff Zatkoff (Drafted by LA Kings) to name just a few.
Marty has had a hand in developing guys that have not only played NCAA D1 and Major Juniors but also has a trend in producing players to these programs as leaders and captains of their teams. His long list of players ranges from guys winning Stanley Cups, NCAA D1 Championships, Hobey Baker Award Winners, Major Junior Players of The Year and Major Junior Championships.
Marty's coaching tree of former players now ranged from not only developing players as top athletes across the world but also developing from behind the bench and player development. Former players now coach in the NHL, ECHL, NCAA D1, Major Juniors and USHL.
