The Buffalo Sabres have been without forward Tyler Ennis for more than two months but on Monday he'll be back in the lineup.

Ennis, 26, appeared in 12 games with the Sabres this season before undergoing groin surgery. In those 12 games Ennis recorded only a goal and an assist, with a -6 plus/minus rating. 

"He brings speed, creativity, he's one of the more slippery players that can create his own individual chances and he's a great competitor for his size," Dallas Stars head coach and former Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said about Ennis.

The Buffalo Sabres have also recalled forward Cal O'Reilly from the Rochester Americans. Bylsma said the team will have an extra forward take pregame skate and make a final roster decision before the Sabres take on the Stars at 1 p.m.
