With the NHL set to lockout its players at midnight tonight, the Buffalo Sabres have finished some crunch time business. The team has announced that they have signed restriced free agent center Tyler Ennis to a new two-year contract.

In 48 games last season, Ennis scored 34 points (15 + 19) for the Sabres. As last year closed, Ennis cemented himself as the team’s future number one center while playing the pivot between Drew Stafford and Marcus Foligno.

“Tyler is a very important part of our offense and we are very happy to have him signed,” Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said in a team release. “He has progressed as a player over the past few seasons and we are excited to see his growth both as a person and professional in the years to come.”
