This will come as a big surprise to those who followed the career of Martin St. Louis.

Despite what was by all accounts a terrible divorce between the Tampa Bay Lightning and their former forward, the Lightning have announced that they will be retiring St. Louis' jersey this season prior to one of their home games.

It's an incredibly classy move from the Lightning who could have easily let the resentment between the two sides get the better of them, and who frankly would not have been judged at all had the opted not to do this.

Hopefully this will serve to patch up things between the two sides, especially considering how much of St. Louis' legacy is rooted in Tampa Bay.
