Ridgebacks add President’s Cup champion Jeremy Michaud


The Ontario Tech men’s hockey program is adding a defenceman with championship pedigree to their roster with the commitment of Victoriaville’s Jeremy Michaud.
Throughout the last five years, Michaud has contributed to several playoffs runs, most recently leading the Victoriaville Tigres’ to the 2021 QMJHL President’s Cup title. He finished that season with 10 points over 25 regular season games before a goal and three assists over 15 games.
In 2021-22 he played 68 games as assistant captain for the Tigres, scoring four goals with 10 points.
His junior career began with the Baie-Comeau Drakkar (QMJHL) in 2018-19, which he followed with the second of his season with the Princeville Titans of the QJHL. With Princeville he played 22 games, leading them to a QJHL title. He started the 2019-20 season with the Titans before being called up to Victoriaville.

“When we do talk about leadership, role player, a coachable player, Jeremy is all that,” said Victoriaville’s head coach, Carl Mallette. “He will always put the team success before his own success. His intense desire to win makes him a special player. He will do all the (team) sacrifices needed to win hockey games.”
The Victoriaville native will be joining a young defensive core that helped the Ridgebacks secure a playoff victory this past season. Ontario Tech head coach Curtis Hodgins says his leadership and championship experience will be important going forward.
“Jeremy will be a nice addition to our backend. He has a high compete level along with an ability to defend and be a very effective penalty killer,” said Hodgins. “He also will bring some leadership to our club in terms of how hard he plays the game and from winning a QMJHL championship in Victoriaville. We welcome Jeremy to the Ridgebacks family.”
