Michel Périard (born November 10, 1979) is a Canadian-German professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently an unrestricted free agent who last played for the Iserlohn Roosters in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He holds a German passport since October 2015.
Périard was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the seventh round (188th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, but did not sign with the club in the two years after the draft. He became a free agent and signed with the Florida Panthers in August 2000. Périard was assigned to the Rockford Ice Hogs for the 2000–01 season. Périard would play the next four seasons with various American minor league teams.
In 2005, Périard moved to Europe, signing with the Nürnberg Ice Tigers of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He has played since then in the DEL. In 2009, he transferred to Frankfurt Lions. He played the 2010–11 season with the Mannheim Eagles of the DEL.
On September 7, 2015, Périard belatedly signed a contract to remain in Germany, agreeing to a one-year contract with the Iserlohn Roosters. In February 2016, it was announced that Périard has signed a contract extension with the Roosters that will keep him at the club through the 2016–17 season. After the 2016–17 season with the Roosters, in which he posted 15 assists, as Iserlohn finished out of playoff contention, it was announced that Périard's contract would not be renewed.
