BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo Sabres left wing Tyler Ennis will be out indefinitely because of an ankle injury.

Ennis was hurt early in the first period of Buffalo's 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday, and coach Lindy Ruff said on Monday that Ennis' status is week-to-week.

Ennis has gotten off to a slow start this season after a strong campaign last year. He has yet to record a point in the first seven games after posting 20 goals and 49 points in 82 games in 2010-11.

With Ennis injured, Ville Leino is likely to move from centre to wing.
