The Ducks were scheduled to go to arbitration with Nick Bonino on August 3.
On Thursday, they ensured it wouldn’t get that far.
According to Eric Stephens of the OC Register, the Ducks have re-upped with the RFA forward on a two-year, one-way deal worth $1.4 million. That works out to an average annual cap hit of $700,00, a slight bump from the $693,000 Bonino made last year (on a two-way deal, it should be noted.)
Bonino enjoyed a breakout season with Anaheim in 2011-12, posting career highs in games played (50), goals (five), assists (13) and points (18). He spent a good chunk of the year centering the Ducks’ third line and could display even more offensive upside as his career progresses — in 2010, he was a solid scorer for AHL Syracuse, registering 45 points in 50 games.
