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.
