Jhonas Enroth Signs Two Year Extension

Sean Rudyk

The Buffalo Sabres announced that they have signed Jhonas Enroth to a two-year extension that is reportedly worth $1.25 million/year.

The Buffalo Sabres have at least one goaltender locked up through the 2014-15 season as Jhonas Enroth signed a two-year extension this morning. The deal is reportedly worth $2.5 million over the two years, which gives the goaltender a $1.25 million cap hit. Enroth was a restricted free agent heading into the season.

Jhonas Enroth has a 21-18-7 career record in four seasons with the Buffalo Sabres. Last year, Enroth appeared in 12 games with a 4-4-1 record, .919 save percentage, and 2.60 goals against average. Those stats are career best stats for the goaltender who is expecting to get more playing time heading into next season.

This contract doesn't provide any clues as to how the Sabres are approaching the Ryan Miller situation. Miller is signed through the 2013-14 season but there have been hints that the team may be looking to trade him during the season. This Enroth contract feels more like a make or break contract for Jhonas. It gives him two years to prove that he is ready for a big pay increase.
