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.

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
