Martin Biron of the New York Rangers announced that he will be hanging up the goalie pads. The 36-year-old veteran netminder was put on waivers last week, but did not report to the Rangers’ affiliate in Hartford.
Biron racked up 230 wins in seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders, and New York Rangers. He spent most of his career as a backup, but was a starter multiple times. He led the Philadelphia Flyers to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2007-08.
He has been one of the most respectable goaltenders in the NHL and will likely be replaced by 6’8” Jason Missiaen for the backup job on the Rangers.
