Adler Mannheim has announced that forward Tyler Ennis has terminated his contract with the team and has decided to retire from professional hockey. Drafted 26th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2008 NHL Draft, Ennis went on to play eight seasons with the Sabres. In his 419 games in Buffalo, he tallied 236 points.
Ennis bounced around the NHL for five more seasons before heading to Europe to extend his professional career. Last season, he joined Swiss club SC Bern in the National League and had 33 points in 37 games.
The news comes the same day that it was announced former teammate Cody Hodgson is attempting a comeback. Hodgson signed a player try-out deal with the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals.
Tyler Ennis recorded five assists in seven games with Adler Mannheim of the DEL before terminating his contract.
