Top Nick Bonino News

  • Rangers' Nick Bonino: Lands on unconditional waivers

    The Rangers put Bonino on unconditional waivers Tuesday for the purpose of contract termination, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.

    Bonino will become an unrestricted free agent once the process is complete. He produced one goal, four assists, 31 shots on net and 78 blocked shots in 45 appearances for New York this season. The 35-year-old forward was waived by the Rangers on Jan. 25 before being sent down to AHL Hartford.

  • Rangers' Nick Bonino: Officially demoted to minors

    Bonino was reassigned to AHL Hartford on Friday after passing through waivers. The veteran won't report to the Wolf Pack until after the NHL All-Star break, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Bonino had a planned family vacation during the upcoming break, so the Rangers have decided to honor that and allow him to wait until afterward to report to Hartford. The two-time Stanley Cup champion hasn't played in an AHL game since 2011-12 when he was with the Syracuse Crunch. While it's no doubt a tough pill to swallow for the 35-year-old, he should be atop the shortlist of potential call-ups should the need arise in New York.

  • Rangers' Nick Bonino: Out of action Friday

    Per Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today, Bonino (personal) will miss Friday's tilt versus Vegas.

    Bonino has gone 14 games without a point -- the fourth-line center has a goal and five points in 45 games overall this year. With Bonino out, look for Jake Leschyshyn to get into the lineup against the Golden Knights after he was recalled from AHL Hartford on Wednesday.

    General manager Chris Drury met with Bonino on Thursday morning to notify the forward of the team's decision. The Rangers are not sure what Bonino's next move will be should he clear waivers. The 35-year-old has only a goal and four assists in 45 NHL games this season.

  • Rangers' Nick Bonino: Expected to play

    Bonino (illness) took line rushes in warmups, indicating he'll play Saturday versus the Bruins, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Bonino was considered a game-time decision after he was scratched Friday versus the Ducks. The 35-year-old should resume a middle-six role barring another late scratch. With Bonino expected back, Adam Edstrom figures to return to the press box.

  • Rangers' Nick Bonino: Game-time call Saturday

    Bonino (illness) is expected to be a game-time decision Saturday versus Boston, according to Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today.

    Bonino was a late scratch for Friday's 5-1 win over Anaheim. He has one goal, four points, five hits and 53 blocks in 27 appearances this season. If Bonino can't play Saturday, Adam Edstrom will probably remain in the lineup.

  • Rangers' Nick Bonino: Nabs helper Monday

    Bonino registered an assist against Dallas on Monday.

    Bonino finally got on the scoresheet after having been blanked for the opening 15 games of the campaign. During his slump, the veteran center managed a meager eight shots. As such, fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting the Connecticut native to suddenly start scoring with consistency any time soon.

The 35-year-old has two shots, a hit and 12 blocks over five contests, though he hasn't appeared on the scoresheet yet this season.

  • Rangers' Nick Bonino: Signing with Rangers

    Bonino signed a one-year, $800,000 deal with the Rangers on Saturday, per Dan Rosen of NHL.com.

  • Penguins' Nick Bonino: Lifted from LTIR

    Bonino (kidney laceration) was activated from long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Bonino wasn't in the lineup past March 9 due to the injury, and the Penguins missing the playoffs meant he didn't get a chance to return. The 35-year-old forward is set to be a free agent this summer, and it's possible a number of teams would be interested in signing him as a solid defensive center in a bottom-six role. He had 19 points in 62 contests between the Sharks and the Penguins in 2022-23.

Bonino played a couple of seasons with Pittsburgh back in the team's Stanley Cup winning seasons of 2015-16 and 2016-17. The 34-year-old has 10 goals and 19 points in 59 games this season.
