Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- J.P. Bordeleau
Jean-Pierre Bordeleau was a competent two-way winger who could function effectively on both specialty teams. He played over 500 NHL games with the Chicago Black Hawks between 1970 and 1980.

Born in Noranda, Quebec, Bordeleau was a gritty forward who could score when he played on the Montreal Junior Canadiens. In 1969 he contributed 13 games in 14 post-season matches while helping the Canadiens win the Memorial Cup. Later that summer he was chosen 13th overall by the Chicago Black Hawks. He spent most of his first three pro seasons with the Dallas Black Hawks of the CHL where he fine-tuned his game and waited for his chance to play in the NHL. His finest year was 1971-72 when he scored 41 goals and was placed on the league's first all-star team.

During his first full season, in 1972-73, the young winger scored 15 goals. He was responsible defensively and played with composure when the Hawks reached the Stanley Cup finals. He maintained this steady work right through the 1979-80 season and worked well on lines with the likes of Stan Mikita, John Marks, and Pit Martin. After two years with the New Brunswick Hawks of the AHL, Bordeleau worked as the coach and part-time player with the senior Renfrew Trappers before retiring in 1984.
