Bonino gets two-year deal from Ducks

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.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
