Kyle Bonis, Mark Zengerle

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins on Thursday signed forwards Kyle Bonis and Mark Zengerle to one-year contracts.

A native of Lindsay, Ontario, Bonis picked up 45 points (25-20—45) in 65 games with the ECHL’s Florida Everblades during the 2013-14 season and ranked among team leaders in scoring (4th), goals (2nd) and assists (8th). The 5-foot-11, 175-pound left wing went scoreless in three AHL appearances with the Charlotte Checkers last season and tallied two points (1-1—2) in six games with the Norfolk Admirals late in 2012-13.

Prior to turning pro, the 25-year-old Bonis spent four seasons with Ferris State University from 2009-13, where he collected 77 points (47-30—77) in 136 career CCHA games.

Zengerle, 25, amassed 162 points (37-125—162) in 151 games with the University of Wisconsin Badgers from 2010-14. Last season, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound forward paced the Badgers with 44 points (10-34—44), leading the team in both scoring and assists. Zengerle was named the Big Ten tournament’s Most Outstanding Player in March, after scoring the game-winning overtime goal to give Wisconsin the inaugural Big Ten tournament title.
