DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. – The Sea Dogs announced this morning that they have called up goaltender Maxime Michaud for the team’s Quebec road trip.
According to a Sea Dogs press release, Michaud will replace Antoine Landry who is away from the team for personal reasons.
Michaud played 30 minutes for the Sea Dogs in a pre-season game, allowing four goals on 29 shots. He was also Saint John’s backup in their second game of the season when Sebastien Auger was hurt.
In 14 games with the Louis J. Robichaud Patriotes high school hockey team last season, Michaud had a record of 11-2, with a 2.69 goals-against average and a .883 save percentage.
The Sea Dogs begin a three-in-four road trip this evening in Drummondville against the Voltigeurs. Auger has started the past five games and Landry would have presumably gotten one start on this road trip. What happens now? Well we’re going to find out over the next few days.
Saint John also plays in Baie-Comeau on Friday and in Chicoutimi on Saturday.
