    3 Bridgedale Grads Phase 2 USHL Drafted

    Grabko, Glynn & Thiesing Getting Recognized

    by Mike McPartlin, Headmaster, Bridgedale Academy  

     

    Bridgedale Academy is proud to congratulate 3 of its graduates who were recently drafted in Phase 2 of the USHL Draft. Two of the three, Nicky Grabko and Jimmy Glynn, are 2000 birth year student-athletes and the third, Therien Thiesing, is from Bridgedale's 2003 birth year group.

    “The 2000's and the 03's were both outstanding groups,” said Bridgedale Headmaster Mike McPartlin, "and Nicky, Jimmy and Therien embody those same qualities of being unusually focused and mature at a young age. They are now reaping the benefits from their hard work and dedication. They are not only outstanding athletes, but also fine young men of good character. We are very proud of them and what they already have and will continue to accomplish.” 

    Nicky Grabko

    Nicky, a goaltender, was selected in the 4th Round by the Green Bay Gamblers, the 47th pick overall. Nicky now competes for the Minot Minotauros of the NAHL. He is not yet college committed.

    “Thank you so much for all you did for Nicky. It can be tough for a goalie, but Bridgedale not only gave him the opportunity to train on a regular basis with a goalie instructor, but also he was able to compete on day-to-day with so many other outstanding players.”

    by Mike McPartlin, Headmaster, Bridgedale Academy  

     

    Bridgedale Academy is proud to congratulate three (3) of its graduates who were selected to represent the USA at the prestigious 2019 Five Nations Tournament.

    Davis Burnside, Tyler Haskins and Jack Silich were recently named to the USA Hockey roster for the tournament, which will be held from August 13-17 in Fuessen, Germany.

    “It's a tremendous tournament and obviously a tremendous honor for Davis, Tyler and Jack,” said Bridgedale Headmaster Mike McPartlin. "It's always exciting for us when our graduates are rewarded for their dedication, focus and hard work.”

    Davis Burnside

    Davis, a forward, recently signed as a tender with the USHL's Tri-City Storm, effectively becoming their 1st Round pick. Davis is verbally committed to the Ohio State University.

    "Investing in Bridgedale helped Davis immensely. He loved the experience and misses it every day, the whole thing, the academics, the peer group mindset. No doubt - Bridgedale had a huge impact getting him to where he is today.”

    Brad Burnside, Davis's Dad

    Davis Burnside

    Davis signed as a tender with the Tri-City Storm, effectively becoming their 1st Round pick. Davis is verbally committed to the Ohio State University.
