The San Jose Sharks signed 2020 second-round draft pick Thomas Bordeleau to a three-year contract Saturday.

The 20-year-old center from the University of Michigan will join the team in Minnesota for Sunday’s game against the Wild.

“Thomas is a skilled playmaker with a high hockey IQ at both ends of the ice,” Sharks interim general manager Joe Will said in a release. “He consistently shows up in high-level competition and has a history of playing his best in crucial moments.”

Bordeleau registered 37 points (12 goals, 25 assists) in 37 games this season and helped the Wolverines reach the Frozen Four.

A native of Houston, Texas, Bordeleau was the 38th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. He is the son of former NHL forward Sebastien Bordeleau.
