Bonino actually tweeted about the contract Wednesday, and the team made it official Thursday. Multiple media outlets reported the deal is worth $5.7 million, or an average annual value of $1.9 million. The 25-year-old has seven goals and 16 points in 27 games for the Ducks this season.
The seven goals is already a career high. He had 18 points in 50 games for the Ducks two seasons ago, and 13 in 27 contests in 2012-13. He was also one of the team's best forwards in a seven-game series loss to the Detroit Red Wings in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
