Thomas Bordeleau is learning a lot from Anthony Duclair, on and off the ice.

It hasn’t always been the smoothest sailing for Bordeleau in the San Jose Sharks organization.

After two standout campaigns with the University of Michigan and an impressive cup-of-coffee with the Sharks in 2021-22, the 2020 second-round pick put up 22 goals and 41 points in 65 games with the San Jose Barracuda last season. And while that earned him an AHL All-Star Game nod, there were a lot of questions about the top prospect’s two-way and inside game.

Now, Bordeleau is in the last year of his entry-level contract, with lots to prove. And he’s going to get a chance to prove it in the NHL, with star centers Logan Couture and Mikael Granlund out for indefinite periods of time.

So Bordeleau knows that he’s got to take it to another level.

“Enough learning, enough ‘I’ve got a lot to learn,'” he said over the summer. “It’s time to execute and show them what I can do.”

Bordeleau: ‘It’s time to execute and show them what I can do.’

Enter Anthony Duclair, who’s had a rocky road to success.
