Christian Ehrhoff D PIT 2 Days

Ehrhoff went pointless in Pittsburgh's 8-3 win Tuesday and has only two assists in eight games for the Pens.

Ehrhoff saw more power-play time (3:16) than usual Tuesday, a trend which could continue when Olli Maatta misses time while recovering from thyroid surgery -- which is scheduled for Nov. 4. From a fantasy perspective, Ehrhoff has been a bust, but that could change with an increase in power-play time.

Ehrhoff is not skating as part of the Penguins' top power-play unit during Thursday's game-day skate.

Ehrhoff may have to wait to show what he can do on the man advantage, but the team is still working out its kinks with new head coach Mike Johnston. For now, Kris Letang is serving as the point man, with Patric Hornqvist, Chris Kunitz, Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby rounding out the No. 1 unit.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed defenseman Christian Ehrhoff to a one-year/$4 million contract.

Ehrhoff had been bought out by the Buffalo Sabres this past week with seven years left on his contract and will now be a puck moving defenseman on the Penguins. He had six goals and 33 points for the lowly Sabres last season. Look for Ehrhoff to see plenty of action on the power play next season.

The Buffalo Sabres didn't wrestle with the decision to buy out Christian Ehrhoff.

"The fact that he quite frankly doesn't want to be here makes it easy," GM Tim Murray said. "I've said at the start that if you don't want to be here we'll make it happen. He's made I believe $22 million in three years and feels that we're not going in the right direction, but he really hasn't had much part in the direction the team has gone. So time to move on." Ehrhoff said through his agent that he was "surprised" by the buyout. He had seven years remaining on a 10-year, $40 million contract. He can sign anywhere this week as an unrestricted free agent.
