Sabres' Ennis heading to Switzerland for lockout



Ennis credits his agent, Eustace King, for finding him work quickly.

“My agent did an absolutely awesome job,” he said. “I just said it’d be fun to go over to Europe and play.”

Of course, Ennis, who inked a two-year, $5.625 NHL contract Saturday, will return once the lockout ends. But with zero progress being made toward a new collective bargaining agreement, he could spend a long time in Europe.

“I’m kind of focused now on just improving my game and going over to Europe,” Ennis said about the lockout. “So hopefully it gets settled quick. You never know what happens with these sort of things.”


The Rochester Americans’ Oct. 21 home game against the Hamilton Bulldogs has been moved to Oct. 23 at the First Niagara Center. Both teams would’ve been playing three games in three nights.

The Amerks moved four games from the Blue Cross War Memorial to Buffalo during the 2004-05 lockout.

The Sabres have already assigned some players expected to make the NHL club – most notably Marcus Foligno and Cody Hodgson – to the AHL.
