Corrado Micalef (born April 20, 1961 in Montreal, Quebec) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who spent five seasons with the Detroit Red Wings of the NHL in the 1980s.

Playing career[edit]

Micalef was drafted 44th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in 1981 after a standout junior carer with the Sherbrooke Castors. In 1980, he won the Jacques Plante Memorial Trophy for having the lowest goals against average in the high scoring QMJHL. He also represented Canada at the 1981 World Junior Championships before turning pro the next season. Micalef split the 1981–82 season between the NHL and the IHL's Kalamazoo Wings.

During his time in Detroit, Micalef was chiefly used in a tandem with goaltenders Gilles Gilbert and Greg Stefan. He was voted the Wings' "Rookie of the Year" in 1981–82. He played for Canada at the 1986 World Championships before taking his hockey career to Europe in 1986–87, making stops in Switzerland, France, and Italy. He briefly returned to North America to play with the IHL's San Francisco Spiders in 1995–96 before returning to Europe to finish his playing career in Germany.

Coaching[edit]

Up to July 2013, Micalef was an assistant coach for the QMJHL's Charlottetown Islanders.[1]
