Ducks Sign Bonino to Three-Year Contract Extension
The Ducks have signed center Nick Bonino to a three-year contract extension through the 2016-17 season.
The Ducks have signed center Nick Bonino to a three-year contract extension through the 2016-17 season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

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).

Bonino spoke with reporters following practice on Thursday.

On the contract talks

"I’ve been talking to them for a while with both sides working toward a number. I was happy to get it done. We started talking a while ago. It’s been going on for a couple months. These things take time and I’m just happy it’s over. I don’t have to worry about it for a few years."

On the contract length
"I’m 25, so it’s a great deal for me. I’m happy to stay with this team and all the guys here. I’ll be done with it when I’m 29, so it’s a great deal and I’m very happy."

On his season so far
"This year is a big year for me. And so far, I’ve felt good. I’m doing what I can in the [defensive] zone, the [offensive] zone, special teams and in faceoffs. It’s stuff like that you know you want to be on and contributing everywhere. That’s been a good start. The only downfall this year is we’ve let a few games slip away that we should’ve had. All in all, through the first 27 games, we’re sitting in first place with a few games in hand."
