Former Flyers goalie Martin Biron announced his retirement today, via twitter. He first tweeted it in English, and then in French: After thinking about it it with my family, I’ve decided to retire as a player and move on to a new chapter. Thank you all for your support Après plusieurs jours de réflexion, j’ai décidé de prendre ma retraite et passer à un autre chapitre. Merci à tous pour votre support. Martin played parts of 2 games with the Rangers this season, allowing 9 goals in all. His final stats for the 2013-14 NHL season include a 7.65 goals against average, while 76.3% of the shots he faced. Biron spent parts of 3 seasons with the Flyers, appearing in 133 games for the Orange and Black. His best season for them was 2007-08, where he posted a 2.59 GAA and .918 save percentage. The only postseason appearances Biron made in his NHL career were with the Flyers. He played in 23 games for them in the Stanley Cup Playoffs from 2007-09, sporting a 2.87 GAA and .908 save percentage. Biron is the epitome of class, and will be missed by all fans.
