Rangers re-sign Martin Biron

June 29, 2012, by

Via Larry Brooks, the Rangers have re-signed backup goalie Martin Biron for two years and $2.6M. The 34-year-old netminder posted a 2.46 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 21 games last year, capably filling in as the club was able to rest Henrik Lundqvist for the stretch drive. Re-signing Biron — or replacing him another solid backup — was a top priority this summer and it’s great to see it addressed in the days leading up to free agency.

    They should start resigning more players before free agency in my opinion. It kind of worries me.

    Mike, how often do you post on Blue Seat Blogs? I’m also a follower of River Ave Blues.

      Very rarely, just when something like this breaks and I’m the only one around.

    Good solid move here. Torts is confortable with Marty, he is the ideal back-up goalie. Play 20 games a year, make $1.3 mil, and enjoy watching the games, life is good for Marty.
