Martin Biron Baby

GOALIE DADDY ~ Canadian NHL Goalie Martin Biron is a dad. According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Martin and his wife Ann Marie welcomed their third child, daughter Emily Marie on April 14th, 2008. The couple took a little time naming the baby; "We spent a little time with her and figured that was really fitted for her and that was what we wanted to name her," Martin said. Biron was in net for a 2-0 shutout win over the Capitals and then up for a 5 a.m. hospital appointment. "It was definitely a crazy 48 hours really," Biron said. "It was fun Sunday night when I got home and the kids were there [the Birons have two older children] and really excited because they watched the game Sunday afternoon. My parents were in town to help out and my in-laws were in town too to help out. Everybody was excited about what had just happened and what was going to happen. Then to go yesterday morning and to have the miracle happen, it was just unbelievable. The whole day, you go through so much emotion but you can't be thankful enough it's just a great moment."

Biron was drafted in the first round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, 16th overall. He started for the Buffalo Sabres in the 1995/96 season. He now plays for the Philadelphia Flyers.
