Toledo Walleye lose Kyle Bonis to Norwegian pro league

The Toledo Blade’s Mark Monroe reports that one of the Toledo Walleye’s most productive players is leaving the ECHL for Norway:

[Kyle] Bonis, who led Toledo with 27 goals this past season, has signed to play for a team in Norway.

The native of Lindsay, Ontario, was an alternate captain for Toledo last season when he tallied 51 points, second most on the team, in 66 games.

Bonis, who holds the Walleye single-season goal scoring record with 36 in 2014-15, will play for a team named Frisk Asker in Norway.

The 29-year-old has played for Toledo in each of the last four seasons. He has tallied 83 goals and 63 assists for 146 points in 172 games with the Walleye.

“Toledo gave more to me as a player and a person than I could ever repay,” Bonis said. “The city, the fan base, the staff for the Walleye, and my teammates made an impact on these four years of my life that I will remember forever.”
