The Sabres made a move to keep an important piece on Saturday.
The club inked a two-year contract with restricted free agent forward Tyler Ennis, reportedly worth about 5.6 million dollars.
Ennis missed a big chunk of time with an ankle injury last season, but tallied 15 goals and 19 assists in 48 games. He really turned it on at the end of the year playing center on a line with Drew Stafford and Marcus Foligno.
He'll likely be counted on as one of Buffalo's top center-men with Derek Roy traded to Dallas earlier this summer. Ennis was a first round draft pick of the Sabres in 2008.
