Watch: Martin St. Louis' tear-jerking thank you to his mom

"She always said, 'show them, Marty. Show them.' Well, mom, I think I did."

Martin St. Louis' No. 26 jersey became the first retired jersey in the history of the Tampa Bay Lightning over the weekend. The diminutive forward is the team's all-time leader in points and assists.

Although his family was by his side, there was one person who was not – his mother, France, who passed away in 2014.

So when St. Louis payed homage to his mom, he had a tough time holding it together. You can check out the video below, but, if you're a softy you might want to grab some tissues.
