Canucks Send Bonino To Pittsburgh

News: Nick Bonino was traded to the Penguins on Tuesday.
Analysis: The Canucks will send Nick Bonino, Adam Clendening, and a 2016 second-round pick to the Penguins in exchange for Brandon Sutter and a third-round pick. Bonino had 15 goals and 24 assists in 75 contests for Vancouver in 2015, and he tallied a goal and a pair of assists in six playoff games. He'll likely be plugged in as the Penguins' third-line center, assuming Sutter's old spot.

Canucks' Bonino Helps Out In Loss

News: Nick Bonino collected an assist in Sunday's Game 3 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Nick Bonino has supplied a helper in four of his last five games. That kind of secondary scoring has been an important development for the Canucks during the postseason, but the team desperately needs its top-line stars -- Daniel and Henrik Sedin -- to step up their production (combined two points in three games) if it hopes to avoid an early elimination.

Five Points In Three Games For Canucks' Bonino

News: Nick Bonino picked up two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over Nashville.
Analysis: That's points in three straight for Nick Bonino, who's got five in all -- two goals, three assists -- in that span. He's going to fall a ways short of last year's 49 points -- he's got 39 with five games left -- not to mention last season's 20 power-play points, but Bonino has retained some value for owners in deeper formats in his first season with Vancouver.

Canucks' Bonino Nets Two Points In Loss

News: Nick Bonino scored his 14th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's loss to the Stars.
Analysis: Nick Bonino has been producing steadily of late, notching three goals and nine points in his last 15 games. Skating on a line with Radim Vrbata and seeing second-unit power-play time, Bonino now has 34 points in 68 games on the season. He's isn't tearing it up, but his consistent production makes him worth a nab in deeper leagues, as these final games for the Canucks are must-wins.

Canucks' Bonino Pots 13th Goal

News: Nick Bonino netted his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: That's six points in 11 games for Nick Bonino, who is up to 31 points in 64 games on the season. While he's been a disappointment after a hot start to the season, he's playing on a line with Radim Vrbata and remains a solid contributing scorer. Although he likely won't reach 22 goals as he did last season with Anaheim, Bonino has been a key playoff performer these past two seasons, so if the Canucks make the postseason, the 26-year-old is one to watch.

Canucks' Bonino Ready To Play Monday

News: Nick Bonino is dealing with an undisclosed injury, but believes he should be good to go Monday against the Ducks. However, he noted that the lineup decisions are up to coach Willie Desjardins.
Analysis: The origin of Nick Bonino's injury is unclear, but it appears he feels good enough to go if called upon. The official lineup will likely come out nearer to the opening face-off at which point it will be revealed whether or not Bonino will play.

Canucks' Bonino Collects Assist In Win

News: Nick Bonino picked up an assist in Saturday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: That's four points in five games for Nick Bonino, who has looked good in six games since returning from a foot injury. Currently skating on a line with Radim Vrbata, the 26-year-old now has 12 goals and 29 points in 58 games on the season. While he's been inconsistent, Bonino appears to be finding a groove and is a solid contributing scorer.

Canucks Activate Bonino

News: Nick Bonino (foot) was activated from injured reserve and is expected to play Tuesday against the Bruins.
Analysis: Nick Bonino took part in the Canucks' morning skate and is on track to reclaim a second-line role next to Shawn Matthias and Radim Vrbata. The center recorded 11 goals and 14 assists in 52 games before suffering the injury in a Feb. 9 match against the Wild.

Canucks' Bonino Could Play Tuesday

News: Nick Bonino (foot) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Bruins.
Analysis: Nick Bonino, who last suited up on Feb. 9, had gone five games without a point prior to his injury. Overall, the center has recorded 25 points and 18 PIM in 52 games.

Canucks' Bonino Nears Return

News: Coach Willie Desjardins expects Nick Bonino (foot) to play some time during the Canucks' upcoming five-game road trip.
Analysis: Of course, with the trip opening Thursday against the Rangers and running through Feb. 26 against the Sabres, that's a non-specific timetable, but it does at least confirm that Nick Bonino remains in the day-to-day category.

Canucks' Bonino Placed On IR

News: Nick Bonino (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Nick Bonino has already missed more than the seven-day minimum for an IR stint, so he can be activated as soon as he's deemed healthy. Linden Vey has been filling in on the Canucks' second line in his stead.

Canucks' Bonino (Foot) Out Monday

News: Nick Bonino (foot) will not take the ice against the Wild on Monday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 radio reports.
Analysis: Nick Bonino should be considered day-to-day moving forward. His next opportunity to take the ice will come against the Rangers on Thursday.

Canucks' Bonino To Miss A Few Days

News: Coach Willie Desjardins said Friday that he only expects Nick Bonino (foot) to miss a "few days," rather than any significant length of time, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports.
Analysis: A day earlier, general manager Jim Benning previously speculated that Nick Bonino could be unavailable for a "couple of weeks," so Desjardins' update would seem to provide some increased optimism. Bonino still looks slated to miss both ends of the Canucks' back-to-back set that begins Friday, but if he's able to get in a practice over the weekend, there's a chance he could resume playing Monday against the Wild.

Canucks' Bonino: Extended Absence Possibly On Tap

News: Nick Bonino (foot) could be dealing with an injury that is more than a day-to-day concern, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports. Canucks GM was unwilling to project a specific length of absence but
Analysis: Canucks GM Jim Benning was unwilling to project a specific length of absence for Nick Bonino, but did suggest the center "could be a week, could be a couple of weeks," away from playing. Those words wouldn't seem to suggest Bonino is on track to play in either of the Canucks' games over the weekend, putting him at risk for potential placement on injured reserve. Linden Vey will continue to pivot the team's second line until Bonino is ready to return.

Canucks' Bonino Confirmed Out Wednesday

News: Nick Bonino (lower body) has been ruled out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Nick Bonino is still hurting after blocking a shot in Monday's loss to the Wild. Shawn Matthias will move over from wing to center to cover for Bonino's absence down the middle.

Canucks' Bonino Not Expected To Play Wednesday

News: Nick Bonino (lower body) isn't expected to play Wednesday against the Blackhawks, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Nick Bonino was absent from Tuesday's practice, and it doesn't sound like he was able to skate Wednesday morning, either. The Canucks haven't confirmed that Bonino will sit out Wednesday, but those planning on using in the center in their daily lineups should still explore other options.

Canucks' Bonino Not Being Ruled Out Wednesday

News: Coach Willie Desjardins indicated that he hasn't ruled Nick Bonino (foot) out for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Desjardins said that Nick Bonino didn't suffer any sort of fracture after injuring his foot in Monday's game against the Wild, likely taking a long-term absence off the table. He was still a spectator for Tuesday's practice, however, which doesn't bode well for his availability Wednesday. A declaration on his status should come out of Wednesday's morning skate.

Canucks' Bonino Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: Nick Bonino suffered a lower-body injury during Monday's game against the Wild and will not return to the ice.
Analysis: Nick Bonino should be considered day-to-day until further news is released on the severity of his injury. Looking ahead, his availability for Wednesday's game against Chicago now seems to be in danger.

Canucks' Bonino Scores Sweet Goal In Win

News: Nick Bonino scored a highlight-reel goal in Thursday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: It was a sweet tally from Nick Bonino, who carried the puck up ice, before spinning off the check of a Flyers' defenseman and firing a shot past Ray Emery. It was the 26-year-old's 10th goal of the season, but only his third tally in 28 games. After a strong start, Bonino has cooled off tremendously, managing just four points (three goals, one assist) in his last 19 games. Centering the second line with Linden Vey and Shawn Matthias on his wings, Bonino doesn't exactly have much offensive talent to roll with. Considering he also doesn't play on the top power-play unit, it's hard to see his production picking up significantly. Bonino should still finish with 20 goals and 40-50 points, just don't expect him to return to the point-per-game pace he was maintaining at the start of the season.

Canucks' Bonino Will Play Thursday

News: Nick Bonino is reportedly "good to go" and will play Thursday against the Flyers, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Nick Bonino has only registered two points in his last 10 games, and will look to break out of his scoring slump Thursday against Philadelphia. The center has tallied 22 points through 41 games with Vancouver this season.

Canucks' Bonino (Undisclosed) Skips Practice

News: Nick Bonino missed Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Coach Willie Desjardins said after the session that he's hopeful Nick Bonino will be available for Thursday's game against the Flyers, but his status likely won't officially be known until after the team conducts its morning skate. Linden Vey would likely fill in for Bonino as the second-line center if he's unable to play Thursday.

Canucks' Bonino Nets Goal Tuesday

News: Nick Bonino tallied a goal on one of his five shot attempts Tuesday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Nick Bonino's offense has screeched to a halt over the last month, as he's mustered only three points since the start of December. The slump hasn't resulted in him losing his grip on the No. 2 center job, but he'll need to generate more production quickly in order to retain his fantasy value.

Canucks' Bonino Ends Goal Drought In Loss

News: Nick Bonino snapped a 15-game goalless drought Saturday, scoring the lone Canucks' goal in a loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: A much-needed goal for Nick Bonino, who now has eight goals and 20 points in 30 games on the season. While Bonino only has one point in his last seven games, the entire Canucks' team has been struggling of late, losing four straight games. The second-line center has fit in nicely with Vancouver and will be back producing offense in no time.

Canucks' Bonino Dishes Out Three Assists

News: Nick Bonino dished out a trio of assists and was a plus-3 in Friday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: A terrific outing for Nick Bonino, who is now up to 19 points (seven goals) in 23 games this season, to go with an impressive plus-11 rating. He has fit in perfectly with Vancouver and appears destined to surpass the career-high 22 goals and 49 points he recorded with the Ducks last season.

Ducks' Bonino Sticks It To Former Team

News: Nick Bonino notched an assist and added the shootout winner in Sunday's win over Anaheim.
Analysis: Nick Bonino has been a revelation in Vancouver, recording six goals, 11 points, and a plus-10 rating in his last 11 games. The former Duck is well on his way to a career season, and will keep piling up points as Vancouver's second-line center. Kesler who?
