Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Tyler Ennis
Tyler Ennis was born on October 6, 1989 in Edmonton, Alberta. He played his junior hockey for the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL, with whom he was part of not only an Ed Chynoweth Cup-winning club in 2007, but also the Memorial Cup in the same year.

Ennis was selected 26th overall by the Buffalo Sabres at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and began his professional career with the club's AHL affiliate in Portland in 2009-10. He got his first taste of NHL action later that season, appearing in 10 games for the Sabres, recording an impressive nine points.

In 2010-11 Ennis would appear in all 82 games for the Sabres and would continue to progress offensively. For the first time in his career he would reach the 20 goal mark and would add 29 assists for 49 points.

During the NHL lockout in 2012-13, Ennis joined SCL Tigers Langnau of the Swiss Elite League. In nine games for the club he recorded eight points. When play resumed in the NHL he joined the Sabres and appeared in 47 games, scoring 10 times and adding 21 assists.

Injuries limited Ennis to just 23 games during the 2015-16 season. When he was in the lineup, he recorded three goals and added eight assists.

After eight seasons in Buffalo Ennis' time in the Sabres organization would come to an end. On June 30, 2017, he was traded along with Marcus Foligno to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Marco Scandella, Jason Pominville.

Ennis suited up in 73 games for the Wild during the 2017-18 season, scoring eight times and adding 14 assists. At season's end, as an unrestricted free agent, he signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

On the international stage, Ennis helped Canada to gold at the 2009 World Junior Championships and 2015 IHHF World Championship.
