Michel Petit (born February 12, 1964) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey player who played in the National Hockey League (NHL) from the 1982–83 NHL season to the 1998–99 NHL season. Upon his retirement Petit had played for a then-NHL record ten different teams, a mark has since been surpassed by Mike Sillinger.
Petit was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft in the first round, eleventh overall. During his 17 seasons in the NHL he played for ten different NHL teams, which as of 2017 was tied along with J. J. Daigneault, Mathieu Schneider, Jim Dowd, Olli Jokinen and Lee Stempniak as the second-most by any player. Petit was the first to hit the ten-team mark.
Petit played for the Vancouver Canucks (1982–83 – 1987–88), New York Rangers (1987–88 – 1988–89), Quebec Nordiques (1989–90 – 1990–91), Toronto Maple Leafs (1990–91 – 1991–92), Calgary Flames (1992–93 – 1993–94), Los Angeles Kings (1994–95 – 1995–96), Tampa Bay Lightning (1995–96), Edmonton Oilers (1996–97), Philadelphia Flyers (1996–97), and Phoenix Coyotes (1997–98) (1998–99).
In his 17 seasons of playing hockey, he amassed a total of 90 goals, 238 assists, 328 points, 1839 penalty minutes, and 827 games played.
