The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has signed forward Tyler Ennis to a multi-year contract.

Ennis (5'9", 169 lbs., 10/6/89) has played in parts of five seasons with the Sabres since being drafted by Buffalo in the first round (26th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He later signed a two-year contract with the club in September 2012.

In 2013-14, Ennis led the Sabres with a career-high 21 goals and ranked second on the team in total points, with 43 (21+23) in 80 games played. Ennis recorded his first 20-goal season in 2010-11, when he tallied a career-high 49 points (20+29) in 82 games.

He has ranked among the top five Sabres’ scorers in each of the past four seasons.

The Edmonton, Alberta native made his Sabres debut on Nov. 14, 2009 and became the 21st Sabres player to score a goal in his NHL debut. He has since amassed career totals of 166 points (69+97) through 267 regular-season games and has made two Stanley Cup Playoffs appearances (2009-10, 2010-11), during which he recorded a total of eight points (3+5) in 13 games played.

While playing for the Portland Pirates (AHL) in 2009-10, Ennis tied for the most goals in the league and was awarded the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL's top rookie and was also named to the 2009-10 AHL All-Rookie Team.

Ennis won a gold medal when he played with Team Canada at the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championship in Ottawa.
