Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have signed forward Tyler Ennis to a three-year entry level contract. Ennis was one of Buffalo's two first-round selections (along with Tyler Myers) in the 2008 Entry Draft, at 26th overall.

Ennis matched his career-high with 43 goals, and added 42 assists, in 60 games for the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League in 2008-09. The highlight of the season for Ennis was a 6-goal performance on February 27, scoring all of his team's goals in a 6-2 win over Prince Albert.

Ennis finished with 236 points (115+121) in 245 career games with Medicine Hat, including a career-best 91 points (43+48) in 2007-08. Ennis is also a two-time winner of the WHL's Most Sportsmanlike Player Award.

A native of Edmonton, Alberta, the 19-year-old Ennis was also a member of Team Canada's gold medal winning entry at the 2009 World Junior Championships in Ottawa.
