Upon retiring from the National Hockey League a few weeks ago, the question was not if, but when, Martin Biron would begin his broadcasting career. That question was answered on Monday when MSG Network announced that the popular and affable Biron would serve as a studio analyst for select Rangers broadcasts this season, beginning with tomorrow's game against the Devils at Madison Square Garden.
In addition to his pre-game, between-periods, and post-game studio work on Rangers broadcasts, Biron will also join the weekly MSG Broadcast of Hockey Night Live from time to time. Former Rangers forward Anson Carter, who has already made his MSG Network debut this season, is serving in a similar role as Biron as the pair join network mainstays Ron Duguay, Al Trautwig, and Bill Pidto.
Biron, a natural for the broadcasting business, has previously worked part-time for the TSN and RDS Networks up in Canada. His fun behind-the-scenes Biron's Journals right here on BlueshirtsUnited.com also helped show what a natural affinity Biron has with the camera.
In his career Biron appeared in 508 career games over 16 seasons in the NHL, the final three-plus with the Rangers. He also played for the Sabres, Flyers, and Islanders, and finished his career with 230 wins, 28 shutouts, and a 2.61 goals against average.
