Michaud Does It Again!

Josh Welter, Dustin Sather, Zahn Raubenheimer and Tanner Fritz.

Long-time Grande Prairie Storm fans will remember those names.

They were outstanding Storm hockey players who were fan favorites mostly because they produced on a regular basis.

It is early in the season, but Storm forward Edouard Michaud could end up being mentioned in the same breath as those four when his junior career ends next spring.

The Sherbrook, QC continues to make a case for himself.

He leads the Alberta Junior Hockey League with 21 points, has points in nine of the team's 11 games and has had multi-point efforts in eight of those.

Tuesday night in Whitecourt the 20-year-old Sherbrooke, QC recorded a three-point game against the Wolverines.

Michaud had two goals,   including the game winner at 2:57 of overtime, to give the Storm a 4-3 win. It was the Storm's second win over the Wolverines in four days and has moved them into a tie for third place in the North Division of the AJHL.

The teams played to a 1-1 tie after one period and the Storm led 3-2 heading into the final frame.

Sean Thompson and Noah Walters netted the other Storm goals while Jude Butler, Ben Evanish and Jaedon Leslie scored for the Wolverines.

The Storm were two-for-six on the powerplay while the Wolverine had one goal after seven man-advantages.

Storm netminder Charles-Olivier Levesque had to handle 32 shots while picking up his fourth win of the season while the Storm fired 25 at Xavier Potvin at the other end.

The Wolverines and Fort McMurray Oil Barons led the league with 15 points each while the Storm and Spruce Grove Saints are next with 12.

The Storm continue their four-game road trip with games in Olds, Brooks and Calgary before returning home Oct. 20 to take on the Calgary Canucks.
