Ennis (leg) signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Oilers on Friday.
The Oilers acquired Ennis at the deadline, and he contributed well before the league paused in March, posting two goals, two assists and 20 shots on net over nine games. The 31-year-old winger suffered a fractured leg during the qualifying round of the playoffs, but he could be ready when next season starts. Expect Ennis to operate in the bottom-six once he's healthy.
Ennis sustained a fractured leg and ligament damage near his ankle against Chicago on Aug. 5 according to general manager Ken Holland, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Ennis is expected to be ready in time for the 2020-21 season, though whether he'll return to the Oilers is unclear. The winger is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason after notching 16 goals and 21 helpers for Ottawa and Edmonton in 2019-20.
Ennis (leg) has been ruled out indefinitely, meaning he won't be available for Game 4 against Chicago on Friday or Game 5 (if needed) on Saturday.
It certainly doesn't sound like Ennis will be back any time soon, so he could miss even more time if the Oilers manage to overcome their 2-1 series deficit. In his stead, James Neal or Andreas Athanasiou figures to jump up to the second line with Leon Draisaitl, while Gaetan Haas should be the leading candidate to be added to the lineup.
Ennis suffered an apparent right leg injury in the second period of Wednesday's Game 3 versus the Blackhawks, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Ennis was crushed by Blackhawks rookie Kirby Dach. The 30-year-old Ennis was unable to put weight on his right leg while exiting the ice. This could be a potential long-term injury for Ennis, who was working on Leon Draisaitl's line during the qualifying round series.
Ennis scored a goal on four shots in Monday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Ennis' unassisted tally at 1:44 of the second period put the Oilers up 3-1. The diminutive forward had 37 points (16 goals, 21 assists) in 70 games between the Oilers and the Senators in 2019-20. As long as he stays on a line with either Connor McDavid or Leon Draisaitl, Ennis should be a strong value option in DFS formats.
Ennis scored a goal on seven shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Winnipeg.
Ennis snapped his seven-game goal drought when he opened the scoring just nine seconds into the second period. It was only his second goal since being acquired by the Oilers and his first since scoring in his Edmonton debut. However, his seven shots were a season high. The 30-year-old has 16 goals and 37 points in 70 games between Edmonton and Buffalo, his most productive offensive season since his 20-goal, 46-point campaign in 2014-15.

The 30-year-old winger has been a fixture on Connor McDavid's line -- that's a productive spot for Ennis to be in. With 36 points, 148 shots and 87 hits in 65 contests, Ennis may be a solid depth addition to fantasy rosters.
Ennis scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Ennis and fellow trade acquisition Andreas Athanasiou got the first chances to play on Connor McDavid's wings, and both newcomers posted a pair of points. Ennis added four shots on goal, three hits and a plus-2 rating. The Edmonton native is up to 35 points, 143 shots, 79 hits and a minus-3 rating through 62 contests this year. Ennis should enjoy more offensive productivity now that he's away from the lackluster Senators.

Ennis has been a fixture in the lineup this year, and he's been excellent with 33 points and 139 shots on net over 61 games. The 30-year-old appears to be trade bait ahead of Monday's deadline, as he'll be an unrestricted free agent in July and only carries an $800,000 cap hit this season.
Ennis finished with two assists, one coming with the man advantage, four shots on goal and three hits in a 7-4 win over Buffalo on Tuesday.
Ennis' two assists give him 33 points in 2019-20. Most nights, the 30-year-old forward is a boom-or-bust option in fantasy, but Ennis should continue seeing plenty of opportunities with Ottawa, so there's definitely some fantasy value there.

What a big night. Ennis has nine points in his last nine games, but they're bunched into two big three-point efforts. He can go for long stretches without production, too.
