After Patrik Sundstrom‘s come from behind victory last week in “Best to Wear – #17,” this week we’ll look at #18.
Lots of great choices on this list including, a former Stanley Cup Champion, the guy who decides punishments now in the NHL, and a young player who was tragically taken from us way too soon.
You will have until November 24, 2011 at 11:59 PM EST to cast your vote.
Once again, I would like to thank all the voters who voted in Best to Wear # 9. We had a great turnout and a great battle between Parise and Muller.
This week, as we focus on those who wore number 10, voting is more important than ever as there isn’t ONE player who sticks out. Instead, we have a collection of players, including former Stanley Cup Champions, who donned the sweater.
Voting will close Thursday October 6 at 11:59pm EDT.
Paul Martin was drafted out of the University of Minnesota, second round 62nd overall, where he helped the Golden Gophers win the 2002 and 2003 NCAA Division I Championships.
Upon being drafted by the Devils in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, he made his debut for the team during the 2003-04 season collecting a career high six goals, and tallying 24 points in his rookie season.
Martin is well known around the league for his offensive skills as a defenseman.
Martin spent six seasons in a Devils uniform before becoming an unrestricted free agent and inking a five year, $25-million contract with Atlantic Division rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins.
In International play, Martin has represented his home country, the United States, numerous times: 2001 World Junior Championships, 2004 World Cup of Hockey, 2005 & 2008 Ice Hockey World Championships. He was chosen to represent the USA in the 2006 and 2010 Olympic Winter Games, but did not see ice team in either event.

Join us again next Tuesday for Best to Wear #8.
Hello again Devils Army. I missed you last week, I hope you missed me too.
After an unfortunate week off, it’s time to get back to work as we figure out the greatest Devils roster, by jersey number.
This week we will tackle number six, and while I think there’s a chance it may be a blow out, again, I think there is potential for a few former Devils to get numerous votes.
You will have until 11:59 PM EDT on Thursday September 8 to cast your vote!
Without any further delay, let’s take a look at the choices of who was the best New Jersey Devils player, to wear number six:
