Tyler Ennis (born October 6, 1989 in Edmonton, Alberta) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League (AHL). He is a member of the Buffalo Sabres organization of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected in the first round, 26th overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.


Playing career

Ennis began his major junior career in the WHL with the Medicine Hat Tigers in 2005–06, recording 10 points in a 43-game rookie season. The following season, he became a key contributor to the Tigers' offense with a 26-goal, 50-point campaign. Ennis went on to add 12 points in 20 playoff games as the Tigers defeated the defending WHL champion Vancouver Giants in a seven-game Ed Chynoweth Cup final. The WHL title earned the Tigers a berth in the 2007 Memorial Cup, hosted by the runner-up Giants, whom they met in the tournament final once more, but fell by a 3–1 score. Ennis contributed a team-high four points in four games, fifth in tournament scoring.

The following season, in 2007–08, Ennis' NHL draft year, he ascended to a team-leading 91 points, fourth in league scoring. That off-season, he was selected in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft 26th overall by the Buffalo Sabres. In 2008–09, his fourth season with the Tigers, Ennis was named WHL Player of the Week for the week ending February 22, 2009 after an 8-point performance in 3 games.[1] Ennis followed up his player of the week honors with an incredible 6-goal performance on February 27, scoring all his team's goals in a 6–2 win against the Prince Albert Raiders. He was just one goal shy of tying the WHL record of 7 goals in a game (held by five different players).[2]

He made his NHL Debut on November 14, 2009 against the Philadelphia Flyers. He scored his first NHL goal in this game against Flyers' goalie Ray Emery. [3]
