Michel Picard (born November 7, 1969 in Beauport, Quebec) is a professional ice hockey player who played in the National Hockey League with the Hartford Whalers, San Jose Sharks, Ottawa Senators, St. Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, and Philadelphia Flyers. He last played for Thetford Mines Prolab in the LNAH.

Playing careerEdit

Picard began his career playing for Trois-Rivières Draveurs in the QMJHL, where he established himself as a scoring force who was also tough and hard hitting. His final year there he scored 140 points in 66 games. Picard was drafted by the Whalers in the 9th round, 178th overall, in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. He met with great success in the minor leagues, leading the American Hockey League in goals with 56 for the Springfield Indians in 1991, setting a franchise record while leading the team to its final Calder Cup championship.

However, Picard would never translate his earlier success to the NHL. He never played a full season in the NHL and only played in at least half of the games in a season once, which was during the 1998–1999 sseason. That season he also played in five playoff games, the only time he played in the NHL playoffs.

For the 2001–2002 season Picard played in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany for the Mannheim Eagles. He then played for two years with the Grand Rapids Griffins (a team for which he played parts of six seasons in all, and is the career leader in goals, assists and points) in the AHL before joining his current team Thetford Mines Prolab. He has led the team in scoring the past three seasons and was the leading scorer in the LNAH in the 2007 season.

As of the end of the 2008 season, Picard is the 13th leading goal scorer in minor league history with 555, as well as 27th in assists with 692 and 18th in points with 1247.
