  • Predators' Nick Bonino: Foregoes surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/7/17) Bonino (leg) opted not to have surgery to repair the broken leg he suffered in the Stanley Cup Finals, The Tennessean reports.

    Bonino joins the Predators after being on the winning side of the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals while with the Penguins. The two-time Cup champion continues to work his way back from a leg injury and he not only figures to be ready in time for training camp, but to see top-six minutes -- something that wasn't going to happen in Pittsburgh behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on the depth chart. Considering he is likely to log time on both the power play and penalty kill, the center could see upwards of 18 or 19 minutes of ice time per game in Smashville.

    Predators' Nick Bonino: Finds new home in Nashville

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Bonino (leg) signed a four-year, $16.4 million contract with the Predators on Saturday, TSN reports.

    Previous reports indicated that Bonino essentially priced himself out of Pittsburgh if for no other reason than the Penguins not being able to afford him with restricted free agents Justin Schultz and Brian Dumoulin expected to get new deals. At any rate, the do-it-all forward heads to the team that the Pens defeated in the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals. Capable of handling a top-six role, Bonino posted 37 points (18 goals, 19 assists) -- including six goals and five assists on the man advantage -- over 80 regular-season games of 2016-17. He also averaged one point for every three games played during the postseason, but sustained a broken leg in Game 2 of the Cup finals.

    Penguins' Nick Bonino: Expected to sign elsewhere

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/29/17) Pittsburgh is not expected to retain Bonino (leg) due to his contract demands, Mark Madden of DK on Pittsburgh Sports reports.

    With just under $19 million in cap space available, the Pens will likely use the bulk of that money on restricted free agents Justin Schultz and Brian Dumoulin, which wouldn't leave them enough room to match Bonino's $4 million AAV ask. The center may be worth that price tag, given his offensive production (37 points) combined with his contributions on the penalty kill (2:17 of ice time per game). Also one of Pittsburgh's top shot blockers -- he led all forwards with 99 -- Bonino has been instrumental in helping win back-to-back titles and will bring a winning attitude to whatever locker room he ends up in.

    Penguins' Nick Bonino: Available for Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/19/17) Bonino (leg) was not protected by the Penguins for the Vegas expansion draft.

    Bonino is an unrestricted free agent who would be a great addition to a start-up Golden Knights squad given his contributions on the power play and penalty kill. While the presumption is that Vegas will select netminder Marc-Andre Fleury, there are a number of solid goaltenders available, so perhaps the team would prefer to add a special-teams expert like Bonino. General manager Jim Rutherford has a lot of decisions to make this offseason and one would imagine the 29-year-old is a priority to re-sign if Pittsburgh can fit him under the cap.

    Penguins' Nick Bonino: Suffered broken leg

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/12/17) Bonino finished Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals on a broken leg, Jonathan Bombulie of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Given the news that Bonino has a broken tibia, it should come as no surprise that he was unable to suit up for the Penguins' Stanley Cup-clinching Game 6 on Sunday. The center will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and will likely garner a significant pay bump from the $1.9 million he earned last season given his contributions. There are no indications the 29-year-old won't be ready in time for the 2017-18 campaign.
