    One of the few players to make the Canadian National Team out of high school in 1973, Martin was a member of the 1976 team that placed fourth at the Montreal Olympics. He was captain of the 1980
    Olympic team. Unfortunately, because of the boycott of the Moscow Olympics, Canada did not participate. Martin also represented Canada at the 1974 and 1978 World Championships, 1975 and 1979 Pan American Games, and the 1977 and 1979 World University Games.

    He was also a member of Nicolett Inn that won the Canadian Senior Men's Championship in 1979 and 1980. Martin played professionally in Argentina in the 1980-81 season.
