Sabres sign centre Tyler Ennis; 2 people familiar with deal tell AP it's 5 years, $23 million

BUFFALO, N.Y. - A person familiar with the agreement has confirmed to The Associated Press that the Buffalo Sabres have reached an agreement to re-sign centre Tyler Ennis to a five-year contract worth about $23 million.

The person spoke early Thursday morning on the condition of anonymity because the Sabres have not announced the deal. The NHL Network first reported the agreement on Wednesday.

Ennis was a restricted free agent. The Sabres had retained his rights by extending him a contract offer last month.

The Sabres selected Ennis in the first round of the 2008 draft. He is a two-time 20-goal scorer, and had a career-best 21 goals in 80 games last season. Overall, he has 69 goals and 97 assists for 166 points in 267 career games over four-plus seasons in Buffalo.

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
