Report Card Grade in 2012: 7.5 out of 10
Introduction: Tyler Ennis had lofty expectations on him heading into the 2013 season after the scorching end with 9 goals and 20 points in the final 19 games of the season last year. Ennis had a decent start to the season with three goals and six points in the first 10 games of the season. His scoring touch faded down the stretch of the season as Ennis only had one goal in the final 17 games of the season.
Key Stat: 10. Ennis' ten goals on the season made him one of four people that played for the Sabres that had double digit goals. The other four were Thomas Vanek, Cody Hodgson, and Jason Pominville.
Thumbs Up: In what was a low scoring season for the Sabres, Tyler Ennis was one of four players to have double digit goals in the truncated season. Ennis spent most of his even strength time this season with the line that proved to have so much success last year. In the final 10 games of the season though, Ennis spent most of his time with Thomas Vanek and Cody Hodgson.
Thumbs Down: Ennis's scoring drought in final 17 games of the season was just another aspect of the Sabres offense that let the team down throughout the season.
Voting: Using the good old grade school system of A, B, C, D, F, with a A representing a great season, C an average season, and F a very poor season, grade Matt Ellis on his performance this year according to the expectations you had for him.
