The Buffalo Sabres have come to terms with Tyler Ennis, re-signing the center for the next two seasons.
Ennis became an intricate part of Buffalo's late-season run last year when he was put on a line with Drew Stafford and Marcus Foligno. His late-season production has left Sabres general manager Darcy Regier to believe that the team had no choice but to re-sign him.
"Tyler is a very important part of our offense and we are very happy to have him signed," Regier said. "He has progressed as a player over the past few seasons and we are excited to see his growth, both as a person and professional, in the years to come."
Ennis struggled out of the gate last season after suffering a high ankle sprain, but was able to turn his season around, finishing with 34 points (15 goals, 19 assists) and led all Sabres with a plus-11.
Buffalo will hope to have Ennis build on last season, once the pending lockout situation is resolved. If a new CBA is not reached by midnight tonight, a lockout will be in place and Ennis, and the rest of the Sabres, will need to wait for it to be resolved before they can get back to business.
