Yesterday, after a 16 year career, Martin Biron (36 years old) decided to retire from the National Hockey League. Biron started the season with a 7.61 goals against average and .763 save percentage before being placed on waivers and sent down to the Hartford Wolfpack. He tweeted that the decision was something he spoke about with his family and it was time to move onto the next chapter in his life. Biron was selected 16th overall in 1995 and played for the Buffalo Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers, New York Islanders and New York Rangers. He finished his career with a 230-191-25-27 record and appeared in 500 games. Biron is one of only five players to player for all three teams in the state of New York. Congratulations on a great career for Marty Biron.
