During the streak, which ran for more than two games from January 10th to January 23rd, Michaud earned consecutive shutouts versus the Manitoba Moose (6-0, Jan. 10) and the Albany River Rats (5-0, Jan. 17)
The previous record was set by former Bulldogs goaltender Marc Lamothe during the 2001-02 season when he had a shutout streak of 146:55 (Oct. 28/01 to Nov. 7/01).
The shutout streak also sets a new Bulldogs team record. The Bulldogs previous best team streak without allowing a goal was 141:44 (Oct. 28/01 to Nov.7/01). The team streak is shorter than Lamothe's, as there was an empty net goal scored during the game vs. the St. John's Maple Leafs (4-2 L) on Oct. 28, 2001.
