      Penguins' Nick Bonino: Likely to return Thursday

      Bonino (illness) is likely to return Thursday night against the Avalanche, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Bonino was back on the ice for Thursday's morning skate, adding to the probability that he'll be fit to lace up in the evening contest at home. He only has four points in 17 games this season, but Bonino remains a solid two-way center who could be useful in deeper leagues once he's back at full strength healthwise.

      Penguins' Nick Bonino: Expected to play Saturday night

      Penguins head coach Mike Johnston expects Bonino (undisclosed) to play in Saturday night's contest against the Predators. Bonino took an elbow to the face Thursday night, resulting in a two-game suspension for Stars defenseman Jason Demers. Fortunately, the injury doesn't appear to have been serious, as test results associated with Bonino's injury reportedly were positive and he even participated without limintation in practice Friday.

      Penguins' Nick Bonino: Practices fully Friday

      Bonino practiced without limitation Friday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Bonino left Thursday's tilt against Dallas after getting elbowed in the face by the Stars' Jason Demers. He was ultimately unable to return to the game, but was cleared by Pittsburgh's medical staff for full participation in Friday's practice. Given his role in Friday's practice, it seems the 27-year-old center will likely suit up for Saturday's matchup with the Predators. However, his availability for the contest should be confirmed prior to puck drop Saturday night.

      Bonino exited Thursday's game late after reportedly taking an elbow to the face. Bonino had to be helped off the ice by teammates, and didn't return after suffering the injury. There was no update on his status following the game, leaving his status for Saturday's game against the Predators a bit up in the air. However, his presence (or lack thereof) in practice over the next couple days should provide a better outlook on his availability.
