With Miller's status uncertain, Sabres sign backup G Enroth to 2-year contract extension

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have signed backup goalie Jhonas Enroth to a two-year contract extension.

Enroth was scheduled to become a restricted free agent before signing on Thursday.

Enroth had a 2.6 goals-against average and a shutout in going 4-4-2 in 12 games last season, his third in the NHL. Buffalo selected Enroth in the second round of the 2006 draft.

Overall, he has a 2.72 goals-against average, three shutouts and a 21-18-10 record in 53 career games.

He's coming off a solid spring, during which Enroth was chosen the World Ice Hockey championships top goalie in helping Sweden win the gold medal.

Enroth has the potential of taking over the No. 1 job in Buffalo with starter Ryan Miller entering the final year of his contract.

Quote of the Day

It was the look in his eyes. Hockey is the most important thing in his life. He wants to be a hockey player, and nothing's going to stop him from being a hockey player.
