Olivier Michaud (born September 14, 1983) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey goaltender. He played just one game in the National Hockey League, with the Canadiens during the 2001–02 season. Montreal had lost starter Jose Theodore and backup Jeff Hackett to injury, and Michaud was an emergency call-up from his junior team to back up third-string Mathieu Garon. Michaud relieved Garon for one period, making 14 saves in 18 minutes of action while not giving up a goal. This appearance made him the youngest player to ever tend goal for the Montreal Canadiens and second youngest goaltender to play in the NHL. He currently resides in Montreal, where he operates a goaltending school, Ecole de Gardiens de But Olivier Michaud.
