Observations

May 2020 – Thomas Bordeleau finished the year as the top scorer on the USNTDP U18 squad at almost a point-per-game with 46 points in 47 games. The creative forward may not stick at center when he gets to the NHL but he is a creative player who will be able to play on a team’s top-six and contribute as a shifty playmaker. He is on the smaller side and his strength will certainly need to improve because he can be knocked off the puck when going up against bigger and stronger defenders. Bordeleau may not have the top-speed that other smaller players have but he is a shifty and elusive skater who can weave in and out of traffic when utilizing his edges properly. The young American was a catalyst for the NTDP club night in and night out, often setting the tone offensively with Matthew Beniers (2021 draft-eligible). When Bordeleau is at his best, he is a crafty and skilled playmaker who has a good enough shot to keep netminders honest. He needs to work on getting bigger and stronger to help make him a consistently dangerous at the next level. He will be attending the University of Michigan in the fall and the NCAA should give him ample time to develop physically while taking a step up in competition. Tony Ferrari

October 2019 – Currently leading the USNTDP U18 team in scoring with 13 points in 13 games, Bordeleau has started the season hot. He has been one of the USNTDP constant threats and stands above most of what is a weaker US class for the 2020 NHL Draft. Bordeleau has a quick release and lethal shot that can beat a goalie from anywhere from the tops of the circles to the goal line. He isn’t shy to shoot, letting shots go from all over the offensive zone. The young American is a high-volume shooter who does a good job of taking shots from a variety of locations. He is an agile skater and takes unique and creative paths through the neutral zone and offensive zone. If Bordeleau continues to put up good numbers and has good showings at international tournaments, Bordeleau could begin pushing into first-round conversations. Tony Ferrari
