He missed last game with what was described as a mid-body injury. The diminutive forward was pointless in his previous seven games, and has just one goal and one assist in 12 games this season. Ennis is coming off an injury-plagued 2015-16 season, where he only appeared in 23 games due to a pair of concussions. John Vogl speculated Ennis could miss 2-3 weeks.
Buffalo currently sits in a tie with the rival Toronto Maple Leafs for last place in the Atlantic Division, both with 5-5-3 records. Their goaltending duo of Robin Lehner and Anders Nilsson have had success numbers-wise, but the wins haven’t come as often as they’d like. The missing forwards are obviously playing a role in their struggles, though we reported earlier today that Sabres defense has yet to score a goal this season.
