    Mathieu, now an 11th grader at Lake Forest Academy in Lake Forest, became the seventh Bridgedale grad to make his college commitment, and the second to commit to Wisconsin.

    “Mathieu is a high-end player,” said Gino Cavallini, who is Mathieu's coach with the Chicago Mission U16s. “He is a very creative player, both with and without the puck, and he sees the ice extremely well. He makes the players around him better and he works hard at both ends of the ice. I have no doubt he will continue to excel and have a great college career at Wisconsin." 

    Cavallini knows about Wisconsin hockey, as his son Aiden is a senior winger for Coach Tony Grantato's Badgers. Gino himself played college hockey at Bowling Green State University, and prior to his professional career scored the winning goal for BGSU in the 4th OT of the 1984 NCAA Hockey National Championship game.

    And Hockey National Championships run in Mathieu's family too. His dad Jacques was a member of Wisconsin's 1983 NCAA Hockey National Championship team.

    Adds Bridgedale Headmaster Mike McPartlin, "Mathieu's a winner too and I believe that when the time comes he will quickly become an impact player for Wisconsin. It would not surprise me to see them win another national championship while Mathieu's there.”

    Bridgedale congratulates Mathieu (and his parents Jacques and Mari) on his commitment to Wisconsin.
