The production of center Nick Bonino has been one of the bright spots in the Canucks' current season – and the superb goal Bonino scored Thursday against the Flyers might have been his prettiest play since Vancouver acquired him from Anaheim in the blockbuster deal for Ryan Kesler.

Bonino took a pass at his own blueline early in the first period in Philadelphia and proceeded to turn Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto inside-out with a spin move before snapping a shot past goalie Ray Emery:

Bonino now has 10 goals and 23 points in 42 games, and his Canucks beat Philly 4-0 to halt a three-game losing skid. The 26-year-old has two more years remaining on his contract at $1.9 million per season, but if he establishes himself as a regular 20-30-goal scorer in that span, he's going to be in line for a significant raise.
