Michael plays an ‘Old Time Hockey’ style of game. He’s a stay-at-home defenceman who likes to body check and slam the opposing forwards into the boards. Entering his final year of junior hockey 2017-2018, this quiet, steady blueliner plays very physical but has shown a few slick puck-handling moves. Michael received the Parsons & Sons Unsung Hero Award for the Renegades last season. He credits his Captain and fellow fourth-year teammate Lucas Lush as one of his biggest influences in him playing hockey. Michael had 2 goals and 14 assists for 16 points in 24 games in 2017-2018.
