Ennis left in the third period on Tuesday against Columbus and did not return, but the injury is believed to be short-term, reports the Olean Times Herald.

Head coach Ted Nolan said Ennis could be out "up to a week," which means the Sabres may not put him on the injured reserve. The injury is "lower-body wear and tear," according to Nolan. Ennis is tied for the team lead with Zemgus Girgensons (foot) for the team lead with 15 goals and both players are top-line fixtures. The Sabres intend on finishing last to draft Connor McDavid, so there's no need to rush Ennis or Girgensons' return. Consider Ennis day-to-day but it is unlikely he'll play against Vancouver on Thursday.

Ennis will not be playing with Zemgus Girgensons on the top line Friday, reports WGR 550.

Mired in a losing streak and with just one goal in 14 games, Ennis will find himself on a new line against the Lightning. With Girgensons slated to stay as the team's top center, Ennis will be the one moving down the lineup. Whether this affects his playing time remains to be seen, but Ennis should still be the go-to offensive weapon. Head coach Ted Nolan is mixing things up just to get things going again so the changes may not be permanent. However, Mikhail Grigorenko and Phil Varone are offensively-inclined players who may help Ennis find the score sheet again.

Tyler Ennis assisted on Matt Moulson's goal to give the Sabres a 2-1 lead in the second period and now has six points in his past four games. The diminutive winger is picking up the scoring pace rapidly and is worth owning. He's a slick playmaker playing on a bad team, but with the Sabres scoring much more recently Ennis has spearheaded the attack. He's on pace to set a new career high in points.

Ennis notched three assists in Thursday's 4-3 win over Calgary.

Ennis assisted on the Sabres' first, game-tying and game-winning goal as the first line dominated the game. He was too small to play center and Matt Moulson is better on the left side, but Ennis seems to have found a home on the right wing. The top line combined for seven points. Ennis now has 20 points in 29 games this season and is back on pace to set a new career-high. The Sabres are maturing as a group with Ennis at the forefront. He's now a viable pickup for teams looking for some scoring depth, though the peripherals still won't be pretty.

Ennis provided all the game's scoring with a power-play goal in the third period of Tuesday's 1-0 win over Los Angeles.
