Sabres Place Ennis on the IR
It was a little bit of a surprise to see Tyler Ennis' name stricken from the roster on Friday night, just before the Sabres dropped the puck against the Hurricanes, but he wasn't there. Rather, he was placed on the Injured Reserve on Friday, as he is currently dealing with an upper-body injury.
Currently, there is no timetable for his return, but he was likely placed on the IR retroactive to November 24th, so he would be eligible to come off the list on December 1st, which isn't too bad, but it would still mean some missed games in the end.
The Buffalo News seems to be rather pessimistic going forward, which isn't likely a good sign.
Ennis hasn't been great this season, only picking up 5 goals and 10 points in 20 games this year, already having missed some time to injury this year. His 10 points has him ranked 224th overall, which would make him a 9th round pick in this year's draft.
Scott took Ennis in the 7th round, 187th overall, so with an injury already against him this season, he hasn't done terrible, in comparison to his draft ranking, but he was still a bust pick, by virtue of the drop. Scott will have some decisions to make in 12th place in the overall standings, 29 points out of the money.
