    • 10 year NHL veteran Matthew Lombardi is one of the Westlake Bourget College founders. He along with his professional staff are present daily to ensure optimal development and attention is given to each student-athlete.

      Fifteen years ago Matthew was just starting his NHL career with the Calgary Flames. He was also starting his summer hockey schools, Westlake Hockey Development. His long term vision was to evolve this 1-week summer hockey school model into a year long program and to integrate it with a great academic curriculum. This model, to surround a select group of driven hockey players with some of the sports great developers, proved successful and thus leading into today’s Private Preparatory School, Westlake Bourget College (WBC). Set in the country-side of Montreal, Canada, WBC will combine the full spectrum of hockey development with a top-notch notorious institution, to prepare its Student Athletes for the balance and rigours that come beyond High School.

        • Matthew Lombardi

          Program Director

          Matthew left home at the age of fifteen years old to pursue his hockey career in Gatineau where he played Midget AAA hockey. He then spent the next four years in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey league playing for the Victoriaville Tigers.

          In 2003, Matthew moved on to reach his goal of playing in the NHL for the Calgary Flames, where he was an important part of the 2004 Stanley Cup run. Matthew went on to play in the NHL for 9 seasons before heading overseas to play in Europe. During that time he had the opportunity to represent Canada twice at the World Championships, winning a Gold and Silver medal. He also captained the Canadian team to a gold medal at the Spengler Cup, after having won 2 previous Spengler Cup’s with his Switzerland Club Genève-Servette of the NLA. Matthew officially retired from the game in the fall of 2016.

          Matt has always considered himself a “student of the game”, always trying to learn and find ways to improve. This passion lead him to co-found Westlake Hockey Development and become a shareholder in his former Junior hockey team, the Victoriaville Tigers. He uses these avenues to help young aspiring hockey players to achieve their goals by teaching and sharing what he has learned throughout his long and successful career.

        • Carl Michaelson

          Program Director

These years were spent scouting, recruiting, and serving as assistant coach. In 2012 he left Hobart to assume the Head Coaching duties at SUNY Canton. Carl then took his experience to France where he guided two different professional teams. Along the way, Carl has maintained scouting responsibilities with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the QMJHL, as well as the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders of the USHL. The professional outlook he maintains is the culmination of experience in these various roles as player, coach and scout.

          In 2004, Carl co-founded Westlake Hockey Development Inc., which is focused on teaching methods that relate to developing life and hockey skills with young players. This program has had success in helping aspiring young hockey players to achieve their objectives beyond minor hockey. During the 2015-2016 season, Carl guided the Cree Nation Midget Bears hockey program to one of their most successful seasons in the past 11 years. In 2016-2017 Carl spent the season at world renowned Athol Murray College of Notre Dame in Wilcox, SK. Carl was the male hockey coordinator and assumed coaching duties for one of their Midget AAA team’s. These last two seasons have been spent coaching at Collège Bourget, and building the WBC program.
