After sixteen seasons as an NHL goaltender, Martin Biron has announced his retirement.

Drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the first round (16th overall) of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Biron played with the Buffalo Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders, and New York Rangers. During his career, he appeared in 508 career regular season contests posting a record of 230-191-25-27, along with a 2.62 goals against average, .910 save percentage, and 28 shutouts.

Biron is one of four players in NHL history to skate for all three teams based in the state of New York after signing with the Rangers back in 2010. On October 14, 2013, the Rangers placed Biron on waivers after a poor start to the season, and the following day he was assigned to play with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League. He never did suit for the club, and has since been rumored to be taking a job in media in the near future.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
