Michel Périard (born November 10, 1979) is a Canadian-German professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently playing for Iserlohn Roosters in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He holds a German passport since October 2015.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Périard played junior hockey with Shawinigan Cataractes from 1997 until 1999, when he was traded to the Rimouski Oceanic to play with the club in the run to the Memorial Cup.

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.[2][3]

Upon completion of the 2012–13 season, Périard agreed to return for his third year with Ingolstadt in signing a one-year contract extension on April 30, 2013.[4]

On September 7, 2015, Périard belatedly signed a contract to remain in Germany, agreeing to a one-year contract with the Iserlohn Roosters.[5] 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.[6]
