    On a Hockey Scholarship

    Bridgedale Grad Gabe Perreault commits to Boston CollegeWe are proud to congratulate Bridgedale Academy grad Gabe Perreault for his recent commitment to attend and play his NCAA D1 college hockey at Boston College.

    Gabe becomes the first Bridgedale grad to commit to BC, a perennial Hockey East powerhouse.

    A resident of Hinsdale, IL, and son of former NHL forward (and present Bridgedale on-ice instructor) Yanic Perreault, Gabe attended Bridgedale for three years while competing for the Chicago Mission '05 birth year teams. He is now in his second season as a member of USA Hockey's National Team Development Program (NTDP).

    While competing for the NTDP U17s during the 2021-22 season, mostly in games in the super-competitive United States Hockey League (USHL) Tier 1 junior league, Gabe scored 18 goals and 32 assists for 50 points in 51 games, making him the team's leading scorer. He also played 7 games last season for the NTDP U18s, tallying 3 assists in those games.

    In his 18 games played so far this season with the NTDP U18s, Gabe has accumulated 15 goals and 19 assists for 34 points, a nearly 2 points per game clip and is presently 2nd in team scoring. In an early season game, he scored 2 goals, including the game winner, in his team's 5-3 win over the University of Notre Dame.

    Gabe also had 4 goals and 5 assists in four games in helping the NTDP U18's to their recent championship at the prestigious Five Nations Cup

    "Gabe is a very, very highly skilled playmaker," said Bridgedale Headmaster Mike McPartlin. "He's quick and fast and his speed of thought and speed of hands are both off the charts." Gabe is expected to go early in next summer's 2023 Draft, and may possibly follow in his brother Jacob's footsteps as a first-rounder

    "Gabe always showed outstanding leadership at Bridgedale," added McPartlin. "His positive impact on the other boys can't really be quantified, other than to say it was significant. I'm certain he's going to have the same type of positive impact on his teammates and classmates at BC. He's just a winner."

    "Gabe was a delight to have at Bridgedale and we couldn't be happier for him," added Christina Di Pauli, Bridgedale's Academic Dean. "He fully embraced his time at Bridgedale and made the most out of it, athletically of course but also academically."

    Congratulations to Gabe (and his parents Yanic and July) on his commitment to the Boston College.
