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.
