This is the fourth recall of the season for Enroth (5’10”, 167 lbs., 6/25/1988), who has a record of 20-17-2 in 41 games with Portland, posting a 2.78 GAA and .912 save%. In six games with the Sabres this season, the 22-year-old Enroth is 3-2-1 with a 2.69 GAA and .906 save%. All three of Enroth’s wins have been in shootouts, giving him the distinction of being first goalie in league history to win his first three NHL games via the shootout.
A native of Stockholm, Sweden, the 22-year-old Enroth was selected by the Sabres in the second round (46th overall) of the 2006 Entry Draft.
