ST. PAUL -- Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno may still be the new guys on the Wild roster, but they're feeling right at home in Minnesota. With a few practices and a preseason game under their belts, the former Buffalo Sabres are eager to get going and make an immediate impact in the regular season.
Foligno, at 6-foot-3, is a big player whose presence discourages opponents from taking liberties with his team. Though he's working on his shooting and his goal for this season is to get on the board more, he's better known for making gritty plays and getting deep into corners than he is for lighting the lamp.
Ennis, on the other hand, is only 5-foot-9, but has more of a scoring touch and has been particularly effective on power plays in the past. A smaller player on a line full of big bodies in Monday's preseason opener, Ennis says he wants to use his speed to his advantage.
