Wednesday, Nov. 27th, 2013

ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed center Nick Bonino to a three-year contract extension through the 2016-17 season.

Bonino, 25 (4/20/88), has appeared in all 27 games for the Ducks this season, posting 7-9=16 points with eight penalty minutes (PIM). The Hartford, Connecticut native currently ranks fourth on the team in points, tied for third in goals, second in faceoff percentage (51.0%) and third among forwards in time-on-ice (15:57). In 139 career NHL games with Anaheim, Bonino has recorded 18-31=49 points and 34 PIM. He has also appeared in 11 career Stanley Cup Playoff games with the Ducks, co-leading the club in playoff goals in 2013 with 3-1=4 points in seven games vs. Detroit.

Originally selected by San Jose in the sixth round (173rd overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Bonino was acquired by Anaheim with Timo Pielmeier in exchange for Kent Huskins and Travis Moen on Mar. 4, 2009. He played three years at Boston University from 2007-10, scoring 45-72=117 points with 52 PIM in 116 career games. Bonino helped Boston University capture the National Championship in 2008-09, scoring the game-tying goal with 18 seconds remaining to force overtime in the championship game on Apr. 11, 2009 vs. Miami (Ohio). That season, Bonino was one of only seven college hockey players to register 50-or-more points (18-32=50).
