Michaud sets team record

MICHAUD SETS NEW BULLDOGS RECORD

Rookie Olivier Michaud set a new Bulldogs' franchise record in Friday’s game at Cincinnati. Michaud set a new Bulldogs record for longest shutout streak by a goaltender, as he played 158:09 without allowing a goal. 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.

PLANTE PLAYS IN 100TH AHL GAME

Bulldogs’ defenceman Philippe Plante reached a milestone on Saturday in Cincinnati, when he played in his 100th AHL game. During his AHL career, Plante has played for Hamilton and Grand Rapids, and has recorded 32 points (10-22-32).

Well he sort of struggled in the ECHL towards his call up, but since I only listened to some of the games on the radio, I wouldn't really say it was his fault, as the team at the time was not playing good. But then when the devils sent down one of their goalies (slovakian kid) the team did a complete turnaround and has been much better since. But Michaud wasn't there for the turnaround, as he got the callup. But luck seems to be on his side, as he may not have gotten in any games with the way Damphousse was playing (he started every game that Michuad was up for until he injured his thumb)

Michaud got his shot (I was at his first game, he looked shaky at times, but not bad overall) and he must have played well in the 2 SO's. But with Fichaud back, and the Dogs narrowed lead in first, Michaud may not get that much time in nets, imo.

As for Michaud in the NHL, well I can say I have never been a big fan of his, but I really like his quickness, just think he needs a lot of work on his consistency, and dropping too early at times. I don't think we will see him in the NHL anytime soon, but more important for him is what management thinks of his future, as he will be a RFA this summer. Currently there are no goalies signed for Hamilton next year, so it will be interesting to see what Gainey and Savard do (since Savard runs Hamilton). I would think Michaud has earned himself a contract, and with some work could see the NHL someday. I think he's got a lot of work to do, as I am very high on Garon, and think he's going to be one of the better goalies in the league in a few years if he gets his shot.

Garon packaged for anything isn't worth a good Power Forward. All we could hope for is a Kilger type enigma. I would keep Garon for at least two more seasons...
