Grant Martin is the main goaltender for the Astral Aeroes. He is known for his strong athleticism and quick play with the stick, and uses an odd butterfly variant of goaltending. He helped lead the Aeroes to an SHL Cup final during the 2006-2007 Season, and was described as a "wall" during the 2013-2014 Season, leading to the Aeroes' first ever cup.
Grant won the Canadian Leaf Trophy during the 2013-2014 Playoffs for his "wild and strong sense of goaltending", capturing a 1.92 GAA and 5 shutouts during the playoffs.
During his career, Grant has been the subject of some controversy, noting as being "skunked" by William Smith twice in his career for the Goliath Ironwall Trophy, the award credited to the best goalie during that season, which he came short by 2 and 4 points respectively, and during the 2013-2014 Season, Grant had the most wins of any goaltender, the best GAA, and all-around attributes, but came short due to the notion that is described as "he had the better team in front of him". Grant commented on the manner; "It really sucks, but I try not to let it get to me. One day I will win it, hopefully."
Grant is projected to be the second goalie to reach 300 wins.
