The Buffalo Sabres have signed backup goalie Jhonas Enroth to a two-year contract extension.
Enroth was scheduled to become a restricted free agent before signing on Thursday.
Enroth had a 2.6 goals-against average and a shutout in going 4-4-2 in 12 games last season, his third in the NHL. Buffalo selected Enroth in the second round of the 2006 draft.
Overall, he has a 2.72 goals-against average, three shutouts and a 21-18-10 record in 53 career games.
He's coming off a solid spring, during which Enroth was chosen the World Ice Hockey championships top goalie in helping Sweden win the gold medal.
Enroth has the potential of taking over the No. 1 job in Buffalo with starter Ryan Miller entering the final year of his contract.

It should’ve been obvious at the time.
When Terry Pegula purchased the Buffalo Sabres in 2011, it was impossible not to get caught up in all the hype. We were swept away by the money, by the endless possibilities a billionaire and his Stanley Cup aspirations presented to a sports town desperate for relevancy.
But, in retrospect,...
On Thursday afternoon, brimming with confidence, Jhonas Enroth told the assembled media that he feels that he's ready to play a 60+ game NHL schedule.
Jhonas like we've never seen before. Fresh off his IIHF World Hockey Championships gold medal win, in his home town of Stockholm, Enroth is so much more to the Sabres thank a back-up goalie to Ryan Miller. By virtue of his...
When Darcy Regier traded for Danny Briere in a deal with Phoenix at the 2003 deadline, it was the beginning of something special brewing for the Buffalo Sabres.
Briere became the Sabres co-captain, alongside Chris Drury, and helped lead Buffalo to back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals appearances in 2006 and 2007. In the 2006-2007 season, Briere put up a career high in assists,...

Saying that the Sabres would be better off without Terry Pegula would be a lie. However, he may not be the knight in shining armor that fans were hoping for.
Pegula has done a lot to show he wants the Buffalo...
Reports of Lindy Ruff being hired to coach the Dallas Stars are a little premature. Ruff was in Frisco yesterday for a second interview with recently hired Stars general manager Jim Nill but no agreement has been reached as of yet.
Nill still wants to interview Grand Rapids Griffins coach Jeff Blashill, with whom he worked in the Detroit organization before Nill left to take...
