Center Nick Bonino and the Anaheim Ducks will avoid arbitration with the sides agreeing to a two-year contract worth $1.4 million.

Bonino, 24, played 50 games last season for the Ducks, getting five goals and 13 assists. He has 20 points in 85 career games, all with Anaheim.

His arbitration hearing was scheduled for Aug. 3.

Bonino was selected in the sixth round (No. 173) by the San Jose Sharks in the 2007 NHL Draft.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
