Jhonas Enroth Inks New 2-Year Extension With Buffalo Sabres
With many people speculating about the status of Ryan Miller at the end of this season, the Sabres had a question mark next to the name that would be standing between the pipes. Today they ensured that at least one of their goaltenders will be back.
The Sabres signed backup goalie Jhonas Enroth to a 2-year extension, said to be good for $1.25 million per year, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.
Enroth finished the year strong by winning the 2013 IIHF World Championship for his home country of Sweden and earning career-best marks for save percentage (.919) and goals-against average (2.60) while recording a 4-4-2 record through 12 games played. In his final six starts of the season, he notched a record of 4-1-1 with a 1.47 goals-against average and a .956 save percentage, according to the Sabres.
