Salary-shedding Predators trade Bonino to Wild for Kunin

The Nashville Predators traded center Nick Bonino to the Minnesota Wild for forward Luke Kunin on Wednesday, a swap on the second day of the NHL draft that sent two picks to the Wild and one back to the Predators.

The 32-year-old Bonino will carry a $4.1 million salary cap hit in the final season of the four-year, $16.4 million contract he signed with Nashville. Bonino tied for second on the Predators with 18 goals this season in 67 games, also contributing 17 assists, a plus-17 rating and 89 blocked shots. He's a left-shot player with 11 years in the NHL who will help fill a void at center while joining his fifth different team.

"I didn't expect to be doing a press conference this morning when I woke up, but here we are and I'm just trying to make the best of it," Bonino said on a video conference call with reporters.
