    From IIHF News@1:266/404 to All on Fri May 11 19:31:58 2018
    Team USA will add forward Nick Bonino of the Nashville Predators to its roster at the 2018 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Copenhagen and Herning, Denmark, it was announced by USA Hockey on Friday.

    Bonino will be playing on a U.S. men's national team for the second time. Three
    years ago, he tallied two goals and two assists for four points as the U.S. claimed a bronze medal at the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Prague and Ostrava, Czech Republic.

    Bonino, a two-time Stanley Cup Champion with the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins, just completed his first full season with the Nashville Predators. In 71 games,
    he collected 25 points (12+13) and added five points (2+3) in 13 playoff games.

    Before joining Nashville, Bonino spent two seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins
    (2015-17), one season with the Vancouver Canucks (2014-15) and parts of five seasons with the Anaheim Ducks organization (2009-14). All total, Bonino has played 478 regular-season NHL games with 87 goals and 125 assists for 212 points as well as 18 goals and 27 assists for 45 points in 88 playoff games. Bonino played three seasons of college hockey at Boston University (2007-10) before embarking on his professional career.

    Team USA added goaltender Charlie Lindgren of the Montreal Canadiens and defenceman Charlie McAvoy of the Boston Bruins earlier today. With the addition
    of Bonino, the roster will stand at 22 skaters and three goaltenders and will be full.
