Fans of the University of Michigan’s men’s hockey team are well aware of Thomas Bordeleau’s eclectic style and flair and it seems he may be easing San Jose into his “drip”.
This is what Bordeleau wore to his three-assist pro debut:

Not pictured as part of this fit are the white-rimmed sunglasses with detailing on the sides that completed the look.
This is par for course, of course. In an Instagram video posted just over a month ago to the University of Michigan men’s hockey account, Bordeleau can be spotted in another pair of fun sunglasses, a black hat with red detailing, and a chain belt.
Going back just a little bit further, you’ll see a red leather jacket paired with what appears to be that same hat and pair of glasses, and we’re really just scratching the surface here.
While perhaps it is time to update his wardrobe to include some more teal, one thing is for sure: San Jose Sharks fans can look forward to seeing more quality looks from the former Wolverine. However, as fans are quickly learning, he doesn’t just bring the looks off of the ice.
In a video posted to Twitter, Bordeleau was captured doing a pretty nice axel jump, however, he may need to work on his landing just a bit. Landing with both feet at the same time is a pretty decent deduction in the Code of Points.
ANYWAY, I showed this to Bordeleau and he laughed because he had no idea what I was talking about.
After watching it, he mentioned that he isn't a big guy and can't just go through people.
Though it's a teammate so that's a good thing in this instance. https://t.co/Z2zQwVvR1w

Oh, and he did that after having supposedly been off the ice for a few days, he revealed after the game:
“I thought it was gonna feel a little bit worse from not skating at all for like five days, and just getting on a plane here.”
Three assists in his pro debut, a few quality chances to score on his own, and a nifty move to avoid colliding with a teammate after going more than half of a week without skating? It will be exciting to see what he can do as he continues to draw eyes in San Jose.

Her actions inspired NHL fans to also contribute to help pay Hartman’s fine, prompting this response from the Minnesota forward:
Wow….overwhelmed by the amount of donations I have received to help pay for my fine. You fans are amazing. I will be paying for it with my own money, but wanted to let everyone know that any money sent to me by 7 pm on Friday will be donated to Children’s Minnesota.
