Tyler Ennis is excited for the start of 2015-16 because of the changes Buffalo made during the off-season.

He's looking forward to helping and playing with his new teammates, but he knows the team will have to work hard to find success. "At the same time, we know there's a lot we need to improve on and get better at," said Ennis. "It's not just going to happen. You can get a lot of great players but still struggle. We've got to get the structure back in our game. We've got to play like we practice, get the tempo up in practice. There's a lot of areas where we were last place last year. Although we expect a huge jump, there's a lot that we need to improve on." His goal going into camp is to push everyone to be better and that type of leadership is always needed to build a winner.

Tyler Ennis joined Claude Giroux and Tyler Seguin on Canada's second line at practice.

Head coach Todd McLellan said the lineup isn't set in stone going into Friday's game against Latvia. Sidney Crosby skated between Jason Spezza and Ryan O'Reilly on the top line, while Sean Couturier joined Brayden Schenn and Tyler Toffoli. Matt Duchene played with Nathan MacKinnon, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall to round out the group.

Tyler Ennis knows that building a winning culture is crucial for the Sabres.

"Losing is the worst," he said. "That's what we want to stress on the younger guys that are going to be a big part of the future is that this isn't acceptable. It needs to hurt. It does hurt. We need to get the winning mentality in here and back again. Sometimes if you lose a lot, you expect to lose. Those are the feelings that you don't want to slip into those young guys that are really important for the future." Part of the reason why coach Ted Nolan was fired was because Buffalo wants to change their losing culture. The team will look to continue those changes through the draft and free agency.

Tyler Ennis has gained more confidence since he was returned to the wing.

"I think I was more struggling at center, not so much the contract," said Ennis, who signed a five-year, $23-million contract extension last summer. "It was finding my game in the middle, getting scored on, losing faceoffs. Those things were frustrating me, and it kind of showed. When I went back to the wing, I felt loose, got the confidence back and I was feeling better." He has seen time on the right wing this year and said in some ways he prefers to the left. Ennis has back-to-back 20-goal seasons and he leads Buffalo in scoring with 45 points in 76 games.

Ennis was skating on the Sabres top line with Johan Larsson and Matt Moulson during the morning skate and resumed his usual place on the point on the top power-play unit. On the season he has 19 goals and 42 points with a minus 16 rating in 72 games played.

He was absent from the morning skate because of an illness, but was ready to go for the match.
