That didn’t last long.
Just two games into his try-out with the San Jose Barracuda, the San Jose Sharks have signed top prospect Thomas Bordeleau to a three-year entry-level contract.
According to The Athletic, Bordeleau will join the San Jose Sharks in Minnesota tomorrow, so he will be burning a year off his ELC this season.
“Thomas is a skilled playmaker with a high hockey IQ at both ends of the ice,” Sharks interim GM Joe Will said in a press release. “He consistently shows up in high-level competition and has a history of playing his best in crucial moments.”
Bordeleau impressed in his two-game stint with the Barracuda, registering three assists in his pro debut on Wednesday.
