Nick Bonino found the back of the net in the Penguins' 3-1 win over Columbus in Game 1 on Wednesday.
Bonino was a regular contributor during the Penguins' 2016 Stanley Cup-winning playoff run with four goals and 18 points in 24 contests. That was despite his lackluster offensive contributions during the 2015-16 regular season, so it will be interesting to see if he's similarly effective in the 2017 playoffs despite his modest 37-point showing in 2016-17.

Nick Bonino scored his 18th goal of the season in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

Bonino finishes the year with 18 goals and 37 points in 80 games played. With 18 points in 24 playoff games last year, Bonino is a solid middle-round pick in playoff pools if you think Pittsburgh will go far once again.

Through 79 games this season the pivot has posted 17 goals and 36 points along with 60 hits and 99 blocks.

Nick Bonino found the back of the net once again on Friday.

Make it 13 goals on the season for Bonino and his fourth in two games as he has been red hot of late. Bonino has 29 points in 65 games but has been a force of late but we can't recommend him in anything but the deepest of leagues as he is still a third line player.

Nick Bonino (illness) returned to action on Saturday.

There was no way Bonino was going to sit out Saturday's outdoor game after missing Tuesday's action with an illness. Bonino potted his ninth goal of the season and now has 23 points in 59 games. Bonino is a third line player and as a result, does not deserve much consideration in fantasy hockey.
Feb 26 - 2:56 AM

Nick Bonino is unlikely to play on Tuesday because of an illness.

He didn't participate in the morning skate due to the ailment and coach Mike Sullivan doesn't expect him to play. Bonino has collected 22 points in 58 matches this season.
Feb 21 - 2:15 PM

Nick Bonino netted his eighth goal of the year in a 4-3 overtime win over Columbus on Friday.

He gave the Penguins a 3-1 lead after two periods, but the Blue Jackets battled back in the third to force overtime. Bonino has one goal and one assist in his past two games after going pointless in his previous five outings. He has 21 points in 50 matches this campaign.
Feb 4 - 9:34 AM

Nick Bonino scored a goal and added an assist in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 7-0 rout of the visiting Arizona Coyotes Monday night.

Bonino's goal was his fourth of the season and his assist was his eighth. He assisted on Justin Schultz's fourth goal. The Pens had seven different goal scorers in this one. Scott Wilson opened the scoring in the first period with his fourth goal of the season. In the second period, Bonino made it 2-0 before Trevor Daley (third), Bryan Rust (seventh) and Sidney Crosby (21st) increased the lead to 5-0. Phil Kessel (10th) preceded Schultz with a third-period goal. Evgeni Malkin assisted on the Crosby and Kessel goals and now has 20 helpers on the season. He was the only Penguin other than Bonino to produce more than one point. But what a mismatch this was -- all Pittsburgh. The Pens are 19-7-3. The Coyotes, 9-14-5.

Nick Bonino has three goals this season with two coming in his last two games.

The forward has 10 points in 25 games after an outstanding playoff last season where he had 18 points in 24 games playing alongside Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin. He currently isn't playing with them but his average of .4 points per game is just slightly below his norm.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 09:35:00 AM

Nick Bonino scored his second goal of the season during Thursday's 6-2 win over the Stars.

He's now up to nine points in 24 games this season. The veteran pivot had nine goals and 29 points in 64 games last go-round, but it doesn't seem like he'll hit that mark again.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 12:37:00 AM

Nick Bonino had a pair of assists Wednesday.

Bonino and Phil Kessel seemed to be working some magic on the ice and it paid off in a couple of goals as Kessel and Scott Wilson scored. Bonino has only one goal and seven points this season but if he stays with Kessel, he should be in line for plenty more.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 11:22:00 AM

Nick Bonino had an assist in the Penguins' 7-1 loss to Washington on Wednesday.

Bonino has a goal and five points in 16 games this season. That puts him on pace for 25 points and while he might do a bit better than that, he probably won't surpass that mark by much.
Thu, Nov 17, 2016 11:12:00 AM

Nick Bonino wasn't on the ice for Monday's practice.

That comes after Bonino missed Friday's practice, but in between those two skates, he still logged 16:50 minutes of ice time during Saturday's game. It could be that he's playing through an injury.
