|Bonk was originally drafted by the Ottawa Senators back in 1994, making his debut that
same season, at just 18 years of age. His first career goal came on January 27, 1995 vs
Pittsburgh. Over the years, Bonk has improved at both ends of the rink, and became one
of the Senators’ most reliable two-way players. He has participated in 2 All-Star games
during his career, and holds the Senators record for most points in a game, with 6.
Heading into this season, Bonk needs just 1 more point for 400, and 11 games for 700 in
