Biron Accepts Qualifying Offer

August 12, 2005

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today that restricted free agent goaltender Martin Biron has accepted a one-year qualifying offer from the club.

The 27-year-old Biron was one of Buffalo's two first-round selections (16th overall) in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He is currently the second-longest tenured Sabres player, trailing only Jay McKee, who was selected two picks earlier at 14th in that same draft.

Biron has a career record of 101-103-25 in 246 games for the Sabres. He has recorded 17 shutouts, which is second on Buffalo's all-time list, trailing only Dominik Hasek. The native of St. Charles, Quebec also ranks second in goals against average (2.44), fourth in games played, and is fifth in minutes played (13,775) and wins.

Biron's best NHL season came in 2001-02 when he tied a team record by appearing in 72 games. He finished the year with a record of 31-28-2, four shutouts, 2.22 GAA and .915 save percentage.
