Biron, Asham placed on waivers

October, 14, 2013
GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The New York Rangers shook up their roster Monday in response to an abysmal 1-4-0 start to the season.

Backup goaltender Martin Biron and rugged winger Arron Asham were put on waivers, the team confirmed. Biron, who was notified of the decision by coach Alain Vigneault after practicing Monday, did not rule out retirement when asked about his options if he is not claimed.

"I don't know. I think there are many options ahead of me. I was just put on waivers, so we'll see what happens with that," Biron said. "It's not the best-case scenario, obviously, but I'm going to be all right and I'm going to figure it all out."
