Sebastien Bordeleau (born February 15, 1975) is a former Canadian ice hockey player, having played his final year in the NHL with the Minnesota Wild and Arizona Coyotes during the 2001-2002 season. Drafted 73rd overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, Bordeleau developed into a phenomenal junior player, recording 52 goals and 128 points in 68 games during his final year with the Hull Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). He split the first three seasons between the American Hockey League (AHL) and in the NHL with the Canadiens before earning a full-time opportunity during the 1997-98 season. He registered six goals and 14 points in 53 games, but was dealt to the Nashville Predators in the summer of 1998.

He saw immediate success with the expansion Predators, scoring 16 goals and 40 points in 72 games while becoming one of the team’s top penalty-killing forwards. While his production dropped off the following season, he still held a bottom-six role on the team and excelled on the defensive side. When his ice time was reduced during the 2000-01 season, Bordeleau was claimed off waivers by the St. Louis Blues. He spent the remainder of the year in the AHL, never suiting up for the Blues. The following year, he departed from St. Louis to sign with the Minnesota Wild.

After just 14 games with the Wild and a good chunk of the season spent with their AHL affiliate, Bordeleau was dealt to the Coyotes for defenseman David Cullen. He appeared in just nine games with the NHL club, failing to register a point and finishing his season with a minus-2 rating. Bordeleau left the NHL at the conclusion of the 2001-02 season, signing in Switzerland with SC Bern. In seven seasons, he won a Swiss National League Championship in 2004 before finishing off his hockey career with three seasons on the EHC Biel-Bienne club.
