Noah Metivier

He is on the move from the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League champion Soo Thunderbirds to the Lindsay Muskies of the Ontario Jr. Hockey League in a cash exchange. After a spectacular 2021-2022 rookie season, 2004 birth year goalie Noah Metivier is leaving town.

“We are happy to give Noah the opportunity to play in the OJ next season,” relayed Thunderbirds general manager Jamie Henderson. “Noah was sensational for us this past season and we hope he continues his great play next season.”

A local Sault Ste. Marie product, Metivier posted a regular season record of 20-3-4 with a 1.88 goals against average, .922 save percentage and six shutouts. The talented goal-tender then followed that up with a playoff record of 8-2 with a 2.08 goals against average, .922 save percentage and one shutout.

“It feels great to get a chance to showcase my skills and energy in a different place, but I will never forget the season I had with the guys in the Soo,” said Metivier.
