Has Thomas Bordeleau figured it out?
We’re about to find out – he’s made the San Jose Sharks’ opening night roster. The Sharks open the season on Oct. 12 at SAP Center against the Vegas Golden Knights.
This time last week, things weren’t looking great for Bordeleau to break camp with the Sharks. He had just come off a tough pre-season appearance last Sunday night against the Los Angeles Kings.
But the 2020 second-round pick, who’s still waiver-exempt, rallied with strong exhibition performances on Tuesday and Thursday to close training camp.
A goal on each night – both high-skill finishes too – helped Bordeleau make his case.
But for San Jose Sharks head coach David Quinn, it’s more about how the young center’s overall game has evolved from last Sunday.
