Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brad Thiessen
Brad Thiessen was born on March 19, 1986 in Aldergrove, British Columbia. A product of the BCHL, Thiessen then attended Northeastern University where in 2008-09 the goaltender was named Hockey East Player of the Year, a Hockey East all-star, an NCAA All-American, and a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award.

After his third year at Northeastern, rather than play his senior season, Thiessen signed as an undrafted free agent with the Pittsburgh Penguins and joined the organization's American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Thiessen would split time between the AHL and ECHL before finally getting his first taste of NHL action in 2011-12. On February 24, 2012, Thiessen made his NHL debut against the Columbus Blue Jackets, registering his first career NHL win.

On July 15, 2013, Thiessen signed with HIFK of the SM-Liiga
