In continuing our look at the impact of the players on the roster, we turn our focus on a player that only played 10 games last season, Tyler Ennis.
Tyler Ennis has been an impressive player in the short time that he has been apart of the Sabres. The Sabres are hoping that Ennis's performance in his 10 game tryout last season is going to last the entire season. With the buyout of Tim Kennedy, the organization has signaled that they feel that players like Ennis and Gerbe are ready for the NHL roster and needed the room to make that happen.
Where Ennis will slot into the lineup, or if he will even make the lineup, has yet to be seen. His best chances of making an impact would come on the second or third lines, but where he plays will all depend on how he plays in training camp.
Three Year Average
Obviously, Ennis' career doesn't warrant a three year average, but playing at almost a point per game pace is something that has to turn heads in the organization. History suggests that that pace will not be kept next season, but its something to keep an eye on.

I feel that Ennis will make an impact on this roster and probably score twenty goals this season. It seems like a lofty projection for a rookie, but given the way that Ennis has played in his short time in Buffalo, its an expectation that should be fairly easy to obtain.
