Sabres trying to sign Ennis, Foligno

With their season nearing its end, the Buffalo Sabres are planning on getting some of their current players locked up to new contracts.

While there will be plenty of changes made this off-season in Buffalo, some players are in the team's long-term plans.

According to Elliotte Friedman of CBC, in his latest "30 Thoughts" column, Sabres GM Tim Murray will begin discussing new contracts with pending restricted free agent forwards Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno.

Ennis, 24, is in the final year of a two-year, $5.625 million contract. While his salary cap hit is $2.812 million, he is earning $3.062 million this season.

The Edmonton native currently leads the Sabres in goals (18) and points (36) this season and will see his salary increase on his next contract.

Foligno, 22, will be coming off of his three-year, entry-level contract.

Born in Buffalo, Foligno has tallied seven goals and nine assists for 16 points with the Sabres in 62 games so far this season.

The Sabres have two other pending restricted free agents off of their main roster also in need of new deals, forward Cory Conacher and defenseman Jamie McBain.

Meanwhile, according to Friedman, the Sabres never received any significant offers for defensemen Tyler Myers and Christian Ehrhoff prior to the trade deadline.

Teams could approach the Sabres again this summer about a potential trade for either player.
