NHL training camp 2013: Ducks C Nick Bonino skating on 2nd line

The Ducks Center Nick Bonino is skating on the second line just after the first workout.  The potential change allows Bonino to skate with the likes of Bobby Ryan and Teemu Selanne.  

The move appears to have shifted Saku Koivu to a potential third line with newcomer Dan Winnik and Andrew Cogliano.  

Bonino made his debut on March 26, 2010 at Edmonton for the Ducks.  In the 2011-12 season, Bonino received the most playing time he has had in his NHL career by playing in 50 games.  He was called up to the Ducks on December 16 from the AHL Syracuse and was able to score five goals and 18 points in those 50 games.

Bonino showed incredible skill on Anaheim’s side of the ice by racking up 39 blocked shots; which was fourth among the teams forwards and he was eighth on the team with 28 takeaways.
