Former Flyers starting goaltender Martin Biron announced his retirement on Twitter after 16 years in the NHL. He was demoted by the New York Rangers last week and announced his retirement on Sunday morning.
Biron, 36, was acquired by the Flyers from the Buffalo Sabres in February 2007 for a second-round draft pick in the 2007 draft. Ironically, the pick was used to selected Willingboro, New Jersey-native T.J. Brennan. In two and a half seasons in the Philadelphia, Biron was 65-47-16 in 133 games. The only time he played in the NHL playoffs was in 2008 and 2009 with the Flyers. Combined between those two years, he was 11-12 with a 2.87 GAA and a .908 SV%.
