ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Wild General Manager Paul Fenton today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has bought out the final year of forward Tyler Ennis' contract.
"We decided to make this difficult decision in order to give our team more salary cap flexibility," said Fenton. "We wish Tyler the best going forward."
Ennis becomes an unrestricted free agent, eligible to sign with any team in the NHL, except Minnesota. He collected 22 points (8-14=22) in 73 games during his first season with the Wild in 2017-18 and appeared in one Stanley Cup Playoff contest with Minnesota.
