Anaheim Ducks sign Nick Bonino, avoid arbitration
The Ducks announced the deal Friday.
Bonino had five goals and 13 assists in 50 games last season with the Ducks, setting career highs in each category while playing mostly on their depth lines. He has spent parts of the past three seasons with Anaheim since leaving Boston University after his junior year.
The Ducks and Bonino had an arbitration hearing scheduled for Aug. 3.
