Christian Ehrhoff has provided the Buffalo Sabres with a list of eight teams he's not willing to be traded to.

Ehrhoff was asked by Buffalo to produce the list as his modified no-trade clause gives him the right to limit the number of teams the Sabres can negotiate with. The Sabres are willing to trade almost anyone on the team and Ehrhoff isn't reading too much into Buffalo's actions. "They obviously want to be prepared come trade deadline," he said. "We'll see where it will take us."

Christian Ehrhoff had an assist in Buffalo's 7-1 loss on Saturday.

Ehrhoff started February on a positive note - or at least as positive a note as is possible when your team losing 7-1 - after a strong January where he recorded nine points in 12 games. He now has four goals and 24 points in 52 contests. At this rate he has an outside of shot of finishing the season as the team's scoring leader, which honestly says more about Buffalo than it does Ehrhoff.

Christian Ehrhoff has been playing some strong hockey for the Sabres' defense lately.

After a very rough November (3 points, 12 games, -7 rating), Ehrhoff has stepped it up with 15 points in 23 games and a +1 rating in the two months since. Under contract until 2022, Germany's Olympic captain needs more months like December and January to reach the 50-point plateau as he did with the Canucks in 2009-10.

Christian Ehrhoff's three points powered the Sabres to a 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Don't be surprised if you don't see Christian Ehrhoff on the scoresheet Saturday night.

Buffalo coach Ted Nolan believes the veteran blueliner may be trying too hard to create offence by jumping into the play at inopportune times. As a result, Ehrhoff could be held back a little against Columbus Saturday night and perhaps going forward. "We need good leadership from him. We need good, steady play. When you go into games, you know exactly what you're going to get," Nolan said. "Sometimes I think Chris presses too much, wants to help out too much, he wants to do a little too much versus just doing what he can do and being patient within his abilities. We had a nice conversation about that today."
Jan 18 - 8:57 AM

Christian Ehrhoff scored the overtime winner for the Sabres in a 3-2 victory over the Maple Leafs, adding an assist on the tying goal too.
