Veteran forwards Berschbach and Bonis return to Toledo

Walleye Head Coach Dan Watson announced on Facebook today that veterans Shane Berschbach and Kyle Bonis have agreed to terms with Toledo for the 2020-21 season. The ‘dynamic duo’ return to the Pond with a combined 563 points over six seasons.

Berschbach, who holds the Walleye record for most games played during the regular season at 376, tallied 20 goals with 43 assists in 56 games last season. The 28-year-old also posted his first career hat trick against the Cincinnati Cyclones on December 29, 2019.

In addition to representing the Walleye more times than any other player, Berschbach is the club’s regular season career leader with 277 assists and 393 points, while tallying the most goals with 116. Berschbach also ranks among the franchise’s top performers in the postseason with 55 games played (T-1st), 14 goals (3rd), 38 assists (1st), and 52 points (1st).

Bonis enters his sixth season with Toledo. The Lindsay, Ontario native is currently third among Walleye players for most goals with 95. Shane Berschbach (116) and Evan Rankin (111) currently sit atop the leaderboard. In the 32 games he played for the Fish in 2019-20, the 5-foot-11 and 185-pound forward earned 24 points with 12 goals and 12 assists.

Bonis returned to Toledo halfway through last season after playing overseas for a year and a half. He appeared in 27 games for HKM Zvolen in Slovakia (2019-20), with 17 goals and six assists. Bonis skated in 48 games in Norway for Frisk Asker (2018-19), that saw him score 25 goals with 24 assists.

In his career, Bonis has also skated in 101 career AHL games with 15 goals and nine assists, including appearing in an AHL-best 52 games for the Rochester Americans with ten goals and two assists in 2016-2017.
