June 13–J.P. Bordeleau

Posted: June 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

Selected in first round by Chicago Black Hawks, number 13 overall in the 1969 NHL Draft.
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.

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.

Received these blue ink signed cards TTM


He also include this colour postcard signed in blue ink.

Also requested index card. Postmark says 1989. 38 cent stamp. I guess that makes this request 22 years old. Hard to believe. Don’t even remember how I found the address. The fun of the chase remembered.
