Sabres’ Enroth traded to Dallas Stars

Robin Lehner made 35 saves for the Ottawa Senators, who pushed past the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 with Milan Michalek's game-winner in the third period.

Jhonas Enroth is a now member of the Dallas Stars.

The Buffalo Sabres acquired goaltender Anders Lindback and a conditional 2016 third-round draft pick in exchange for their No. 1 goalie.

Enroth’s contract, which carries a salary cap hit of $1.25 million, expires on July 1, at which point the goaltender will become an unrestricted free agent.

The Stars, who sit three points out of a wild card berth in the Western Conference, have struggled between the pipes this season.

Veteran Kari Lehtonen (23-12-8) has a .906 save percentage and 2.94 goals-against average, while backups Lindback (2-8-0, .875 save percentage) and Jussi Rynnas (0-10, .841 save percentage) have provided little to no support.

Enroth has carried the bulk of the load behind the porous defence of last-place Buffalo, posting a 13-21-2 record with one shutout and a .903 save percentage.

The Sabres already traded away their No. 1 defenceman as part of Wednesday’s Evander Kane blockbuster deal.
