Bonino Nets First NHL Goal, Colborne Update

On Monday night, current Anaheim Duck and former Terrier center Nick Bonino netted his first career NHL goal in a 3-1 win against Dallas. It came at 8:11 in the second period, and set off the start of a 3 goal period for the Ducks. Bonino was assisted on the goal, a power play goal, by Duck standout and recent 600 goal scorer Teemu Selanne. According to the LA Times , Selanne has been impressed with Bonino's talent: "A first NHL goal is always something," Selanne said. "You know you can see what kind of skills he has. He's so calm". In the same Times article, Bonino was quoted as telling Selanne he wouldn't soon forget this career achievement: "Yeah, he said he still remembers his first NHL goal. I told him I'll probably remember this one as long as I play, as long as I live too." See Bonino's goal here .

Nick's first career professional goal comes only a couple of days after former Terrier Zach Cohen achieved the same feat in an AHL game with the Avalanche Affiliate.

On a Bruins note, there have been multiple conflicting reports about the future of Denver sophomore Joe Colborne. Currently, all signs show that Colborne has not yet signed, but the signing appears to be eminent .
