Dave Bonk Added as PTO

You might have noticed #14 on the ice this evening, wearing a name that's four letters long and starts with a "B". No, it's not Jamie Benn on a conditioning assignment, it's Dave Bonk. Bonk has played most of the season with the Americans but has had some time in the AHL with the Barons. Bonk was in Texas training camp this summer but was ultimately sent down to Allen.

Here's the release:
Prior to the game, the Texas Stars announced the team has signed center Dave Bonk to a PTO (professional tryout agreement). The 28-year old center has played the majority of the season with the CHL’s Allen Americans. Bonk has appeared in 33 games with the Americans, scoring 15 goals and 29 assists for 44 points. The 188-pound center also appeared in six games with the Oklahoma City Barons this year, posting one assist and four penalty minutes. Last Season, the Brandon, MB native played with the Manglerud Star in Norway. Before joining Manglerud, Bonk played with the ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors during the 2008-09 season. The center led the Condors in points and assists (31g-51a=82) in 60 games. Bonk made his Texas Stars AHL debut on Friday night against the Rockford IceHogs.
