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.

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.

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.

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.

Nick Bonino (foot) returned to game action on Sunday.

Bonino injured his foot in practice a week ago and was well enough to return Sunday but he blocked another shot against the Blue Jackets. Fortunately, he didn't miss a shift. Bonino had only nine goals and 29 points in 63 games last season but shone in the playoffs where he had four goals and 18 points in 24 games as the Penguins marched on to win the Stanley Cup. Look for a 40-45 point season from Bonino this season.
Oct 3 - 9:54 AM

Nick Bonino (foot) didn't participate in Monday's practice.

Bonino was struck in the foot by the puck on Sunday. The good news is that this doesn't sound like a significant problem. "He came in and was sore, so we held him off," coach Mike Sullivan explained. With that in mind, it sounds like this is just a day-to-day issue.

Nick Bonino suffered a foot injury in practice.

It is not yet known how serious the injury may be. "We’ll see how he is overnight," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He obviously took a shot in the foot. I don’t think it’s anything serious. I think it just hit him in an unfortunate spot. We’ll have more of an update [Monday]." Stay tuned.

Nick Bonino has been credited with 18 blocks in the Stanley Cup Final.

He has been banged up in the Stanley Cup Final after he stopped a shot in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final versus Tampa Bay, but that hasn't stopped him from putting himself in front of pucks. The Penguins have blocked 93 shots against San Jose for an average of 23.3 per game.
Jun 9 - 5:37 PM

Nick Bonino will play in Game 5 versus San Jose.

He didn't practice Wednesday for maintenance and skipped Thursday's morning session, but he is fine to play. Bonino has potted four goals and added 13 assists in 22 playoff games for the Penguins.
Jun 9 - 1:28 PM

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said Wednesday was a maintenance day for Nick Bonino.

As previously reported, Bonino didn't participate in Wednesday's practice. He might be playing through an ailment that he took the day to rest. Either way, it sounds like he's still projected to play in Game 5.
Jun 8 - 1:52 PM

Nick Bonino was the only Penguins regular not to attend Wednesday's practice.

We don't know yet if that means anything. Bonino was questionable for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final after blocking a shot in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final. He didn't end up missing any games due to that injury, but it's possible it's still bothering him and he took a maintenance day to rest it. This could also be a sign of something new though.
