Michel Goulet (born April 21, 1960 in Peribonka, Quebec) is a Canadian retired professional forward who played for the Birmingham Bulls in the World Hockey Association and the Quebec Nordiques and Chicago Blackhawks in the National Hockey League.
Goulet played his first professional season with the Birmingham Bulls of the WHA during the 78–79 season in which he scored 28 goals and 58 points. Following the NHL/WHA merger, Goulet was declared eligible for the 1979 NHL Entry Draft and was selected by the Quebec Nordiques.
Goulet turned out to be one of the most prolific snipers of the decade in the NHL. He achieved 50 goals in a season four straight years starting with the 82–83 season and became one of the centre pieces of the team along with the Stastny brothers.
During the 89–90 season, a season in which the Nordiques ended up with a record of 12 wins, 61 losses and 7 ties and followed two years where the club failed to make the playoffs, Goulet was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in return for younger players.
While playing against the Canadiens at the Montreal Forum on March 16, 1994, Goulet crashed into the end boards striking his head and suffered a severe concussion forcing him into retirement and having to cope with post-trauma symptoms.
A year to the day after the accident, Goulet's number 16 was retired by the Nordiques before a large crowd at le Colisée de Québec where he enjoyed his most productive years. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998 alongside former teammate Peter Stastny. In 1089 NHL games he recorded 548 goals and 604 assists for 1152 points.
