Nick Bonino - Shootout Specialist?

I've begun to notice that one thing that is often overlooked in the acquistion of Nick Bonino, is his ability to get it done in the shootout.
In the 2012-13 season he was 3/5 in the shootout, going 3/3 in his first 3 attempts. This season, he was a little weaker at 3/8, but was in 8 of the 9 shootouts that the Anaheim Ducks were involved in.

Compared to other Canucks this season, I believe he'll be our go-to guy for the forseeable future in the shootout.
Just look how others faired this season:
Santorelli - 2 for 8
Higgins - 2 for 8
Kesler - 1 for 7
Burrows - 1 for 5
Weber - 1 for 2
Jensen - 1 for 2
D. Sedin - 0 for 4
Kassian - 0 for 4
Edler - 0 for 2
H. Sedin - 0 for 2

Here are some highlights from previous Bonino shootout goals.
