Tyler Ennis reached the 20-point milestone on Saturday.
It took Ennis 65 games to get to that mark. He was a solid offensive contributor with Buffalo, but he was also playing a much bigger role there. The Wild have only given him an average of about 12 minutes per contest in 2017-18, so obviously he's not going to be much of an offensive force. You would need to be in a very deep league to warrant having him on your fantasy team. Mar 11 - 8:27 AM

Tyler Ennis scored twice but it wasn't enough as the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Minnesota Wild 5-4 in overtime on Saturday night.

Ennis' second goal of the game was reviewed but ultimately stood up as a good goal. He now has four points in four games to start the season. Ennis has three 20-goal seasons under his belt but is coming two consecutive injury-shortened seasons. If he can remain healthy, he could be a fantasy asset in deep leagues.

Tyler Ennis believes he can be a 20-goal scorer again if he can stay healthy.

"Before my injuries, I was scoring 20 [goals] a year," Ennis said. "So my goal is to get back on that path. If I play a healthy season, there's no reason I can't do that again, especially on this team, especially with this lineup." That could prove to be difficult if he spends most of his time on the fourth line, which is where he is projected to start the season.

Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau feels Tyler Ennis could be a bounce-back candidate this season.

"If we can keep him healthy, I think he's going to have a rebound year like Eric Staal had," said Boudreau. "I'm very excited about having him. In our top-nine forwards, I think we're as strong as anybody in the league." Ennis has been limited to just 74 games over the last two years because of injuries. He is projected to line up on the third combination in 2017-18.

Look for newly-acquired forwards Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno to upgrade Minnesota's third line.

The two former Sabres could flank Charlie Coyle on what would be a very effective third unit. Eric Staal, Zach Parise and Nino Niederreiter will likely line up as the top unit with Mikko Koivu, Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker comprising the second line. If Ennis and Foligno are destined for third-line duty, look for them both to be 40-point players in 2017-18, which isn't too shabby for the 14 minutes of playing time they will likely get per night.

The Minnesota Wild have acquired Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno, and a 2018 third-round pick from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Jason Pominville, Marco Scandella, and a 2018 fourth-round selection.

Ennis has had some decent offensive seasons, but he's struggled over the last two campaigns with a combined eight goals and 24 points in 74 contests. Perhaps the change of scenery will do him some good, but if it doesn't then he'll be overpriced for his $4.6 million annual cap hit. His contract will expire in the summer of 2019.
