13-Year Veteran Tyler Ennis Finds New Home

After 13 seasons with five different teams in the NHL, former first-round pick Tyler Ennis, who spent last season in Switzerland, has now signed on to continue his hockey career with Adler Mannheim of the German DEL.

Proving he's still got the scoring touch, Ennis registered 13 goals and 33 points in 37 games with Bern SC in the Swiss League last year, and now will join fellow former NHLers Jyrki JokipakkaTom Kühnhackl, and Linden Vey in Mannheim.  

It's a one-year deal for the 34-year-old forward. 

Ennis was drafted 26th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, and spent eight years there, compiling three 20-goal seasons. After his long run in Buffalo, Ennis spent seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Minnesota Wild, Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers. He last appeared in the NHL with the Sens in 2021-22, managing 24 points in 57 games. 

Overall, in 700 NHL games over 13 years, the Edmonton-born Ennis totaled 144 goals and 202 assists for 346 points in about 15 minutes of ice time per night.
