Tyler Ennis, who was scheduled to center one of the Sabres' top two lines this season, is back on the ice in Switzerland after missing time with an undisclosed injury.
Ennis played for Langnau on Tuesday night and recorded an assist during the Tigers' 5-1 victory over Rapperswil-Jona. Ennis missed seven games with the ailment.
"He’s healthy and he’s playing and that’s the main thing," Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier said by phone today.
Ennis is one of seven Sabres playing overseas, joining Thomas Vanek, Christian Ehrhoff, Tyler Myers, Andrej Sekera, Alexander Sulzer and Jhonas Enroth.
"We are keeping track from a distance," Regier said. "The biggest focus is making sure that we stay in touch, at least in the stats, who’s playing, how they’re playing, how they’re doing and maybe even more importantly are they staying healthy?"
