Forward Westin Michaud has officially committed to transfer to the University of North Dakota following his upcoming graduation at Colorado College. The grad transfer, who will complete his undergraduate studies in May, will have one year of eligibility remaining and will join the 2019-20 squad.
"Westin is a competitor and we're happy to add that to our offensive group," UND head coach Brad Berry said. "We were an attractive option for him to continue his career and our fans will like how he plays the game."
Michaud led CC to its first-ever NCHC Frozen Faceoff with an upset of Western Michigan in the quarterfinal round of the tournament. The Tigers went to Kalamazoo, Mich., and bounced the then-12th-ranked Broncos from the league tournament and ultimately spoiled a potential NCAA at-large bid for WMU.
The 5-foot-9 forward collected 30 points this past season, scoring 13 goals and adding 17 assists. The Cloquet, Minn., native had seven power-play goals, including three in the NCHC playoffs alone. Those seven power-play tallies tied for the most in the conference and ranked just outside the top 20 nationally. He also recorded a +13 plus/minus rating as a junior.
For his career, Michaud has played in 114 games over his three seasons at CC, scoring 29 goals with 33 assists for 62 points.
