Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Marty Reasoner
Following a successful high school career, Marty Reasoner moved to the U.S. college ranks for the 1995-96 season. He fit right into the Boston College team and took the Hockey East Rookie-of-the-Year honors. Noting his play, the St. Louis Blues claimed Reasoner 14th overall in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. Reasoner returned to Boston College for the next two seasons, earning NCAA East All-American Team honors in both years.

A two-time member of the U.S. World Junior team in 1996 and 1997, Reasoner began his NHL career during the 1998-99 season. The rest of that season, and the next two, were split between the Blues and their AHL affiliate in Worcester.

After three seasons in the St. Louis organizatoin, Reasoner was dealt to the Edmonton Oilers in the summer of 2001. Upon his arrival with the Oilers, Reasoner went to play 52 games with the club before reprsenting his homeland later that spring at the 2002 World Championships. In 2002-03, Reasoner established at the time career highs in goals (11), assists (20) and points (31) before representing the US for a second time at the World Championships.

Coming off a strong season in 2002-03, Reasoner missed the majority of the 2003-04 season due to injury. During the lock out year Reasoner played 11 games with EC Salzburg of the Austrian National League before returning to the NHL in 2005-06.

Following 58 games with the Edmonton Oilers, Reasoner was sent to the Boston Bruins along with Yan Stastny and a 2nd round selection in 2006 in exchange for Sergei Samsonov. With both the Oilers and Bruins in 2005-06 Reasoner set a career high in games, assist and points.

Reasoner's stint with the Bruins, although productive, was short lived. The Rochester native resigned with Edmonton Oilers on July 4th, 2006. Over the next two seasons in Oil Country, Reasoner was a regular on a relatively young and rebuilding squad which failed to qualify for both the 2007 and 2008 NHL playoffs.

His second stint in Edmonton came to an end in the summer of 2008 when the unrestricted free agent signed with the Atlanta Thrashers.

In the summer of 2010, Reasoner was sent to the newly crowned Stanley Cup champion, Chicago Blackhawks as part of a multi-player trade. However he would not suit up for the Hawks, less than a month later her was sent to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jeff Taffe.

After a productive season in Florida in which he tied a career best in goal production with 14, Reasoner would become an unrestricted free agent. On July 1, 2011 he signed a deal with the New York Islanders.
