Alfred Michaud (born November 6, 1976 in Selkirk, Manitoba) is an Ojibwe First Nations[1][2] Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who played briefly in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Vancouver Canucks. He then played for SønderjyskE of the Danish AL-Bank Ligaen. He is currently the goaltender coach at his alma mater, the University of Maine.

Career[edit]

Never drafted into the NHL, Michaud signed a pro contract with the Vancouver Canucks in 1999 following stellar junior season at the University of Maine in which he posted a 28–6–3 record with a 2.32 GAA. He would appear in 37 games in his first professional season for the Manitoba Moose, Vancouver's AHL affiliate, and received a two-game callup to the Canucks during an injury crunch. Over the course of the next two seasons, he continued to play solidly in minor pro, but did not receive another chance at the NHL level. His Goalie coach Dominic McCarthy suggested he take his skills over seas which is what Alfie did.

Michaud was released by the Canucks in 2002, and has since had stints in the ECHL with the Peoria Rivermen and Utah Grizzlies, and in Germany with the Sinupret Ice Tigers. Michaud last plays in the German 2nd Bundesliga with Bremerhaven REV and left the club on 28 March 2009,[3] he now plays in Denmark for SønderjyskE.[4]

In 2 career NHL games, he has an 0–1 record with a 7.35 GAA.

During the 2010–11 season in Denmark he set a shutout record by going 360:58 without allowing a goal; the previous record in Denmark was 242 minutes.[5]
