Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Olivier Michaud
Olivier Michaud was born September 14, 1983 in Beloeil, Quebec. A free agent signing by the Montreal Canadiens in 2001, Michaud is one of several young aspiring goaltenders to come out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The Beloeil, Quebec native has spent the past three seasons in goal for the Shawinigan Catraractes leading them to a first place finish in the Robert Lebel Conference in 2001-02 with a 29-11-3 record along with three shutouts and 2.45 GAA.

A member of Canada's silver medal World Junior team in 2002, Michaud grabbed the headlines in Montreal after he was called up from Shawinigan early into the 2001-02 season to replace injured goaltender Jeff Hackett, becoming the youngest goaltender in team history to play a regular season game at the age of 18. Michaud played the 2002-03 season with Baie-Comeau Drakkar of the QMJHL.
