  • Ennis recorded four shots through 15:44 of ice time during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Philadelphia. The veteran winger skated primarily with Mikko Koivu and Mikael Granlund during Tuesday's game, and if it sticks, it's a trio with potential. Ennis needs a shakeup, as he's registered just a single goal over his past 13 games and has seen his ice time climb and dip throughout the stretch. While there is still offensive potential, it's currently difficult to turn to Ennis in the majority of fantasy settings.

  • Ennis scored a pair of goals on three shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets on Saturday. The 28-year-old mysteriously lost his scoring touch in his final two seasons in Buffalo. While injuries played a role, Ennis' shooting percentage dropped from 10.8 percent in 2014-15 to 5.3 percent in 2015-16 and remained below 6.0 percent last season. Ennis scoring a pair early this season when he still has under 10 shots on goal is a sign that maybe Ennis will have some better luck this season. If he can stay healthy and post a shooting percentage around 10 percent, Ennis could surprise.

  • Ennis had an assist, six hits and two shots on goal in Thursday's win over Chicago. Ennis was on the third line with Joel Eriksson Ek and Chris Stewart, a line that's been productive through two games. Ennis could have more opportunities in the short term with several forwards injured.

  • Wild's Tyler Ennis: Dealt to Minnesota
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ennis, fellow winger Marcus Foligno, and a third-round pick in 2018 were traded to the Wild on Friday in exchange for the Sabres acquiring Jason Pominville, defenseman Marco Scandella and a fourth-round pick in 2018, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. The diminutive flanker was protected by the Sabres in the expansion draft, but ended up being a crucial trade chip for Buffalo in its pursuit to bring back Pominiville as well as a brutish, heavy-shooting rearguard in Scandella. As for Ennis, he only produced 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in 51 games of an injury-shortened campaign. When you consider that his ice time dropped by more than five minutes compared to the prior season, it's no wonder that the Swords did away with Ennis. He'll be free-agent fodder in the majority of fantasy leagues unless we see a positive reversal in playing time.

  • Sabres' Tyler Ennis: Lands on protected list
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ennis was one of seven forwards protected by the Sabres for the expansion draft. This is a surprising move by the Sabres, considering Ennis has scored just 24 points in 74 games over the past two seasons due to various injuries. His ice time has dipped in each of his past three seasons, and it's clear that he's no longer considered a core player as the team builds around Jack Eichel and Ryan O'Reilly instead. Still, the Sabres obviously see some value in Ennis, who is the longest tenured player and showed some intriguing chemistry with Eichel during Eichel's rookie season. Protecting Ennis is a sign that the Sabres still have some hope for Ennis, though he won't be guaranteed a top-six role. He has two years remaining on his contract with a cap hit of $4.6 million.
