Buffalo, NY - With the signing of Patrick Kaleta now out the way, the Buffalo Sabres have one more key player to lock down for the future, restricted free agent Tyler Ennis.
On Wednesday morning Sabres general manager Darcy Regier updated the current state of the negotiations with Ennis.
“We spoke with his agent yesterday,” said Regier. “I think that’ll continue today.”
Regier said that it’s always tough to judge whether you’re close to a deal or not until a contract is actually signed. ”
“You can feel close and not be close, or you can feel a long ways apart and be close,” he said. “The positive is, it’s moving in the right direction.”
Regier has previously stated that Ennis would not be getting a “long-term deal” with this next contract.
