Former Canuck Ehrhoff reaches deal with German club

Sabres' blueliner will head home for NHL lockout

Rich Brown Sep 18, 2012 22:29:54 PM

BUFFALO, NY (NEWS1130) - Buffalo Sabres defenceman Christian Ehrhoff has reached a deal to spend the NHL lockout playing in his home country of Germany. The former Canuck agreed to play for the Krefeld Penguins.

The German team had to agree to pay for Ehrhoff's insurance in case of injury. The cost to the club will be about US$26,000 a month.

Ehrhoff spent some time earlier in the offseason training with Krefeld but returned to Buffalo to prepare for the season. He headed back to Germany after the NHL locked its players out on the weekend.

Ehrhoff says it will be an easy transition because of his familiarity.

"It’s the ideal situation for the team and me. The guys know me, I know the guys."

The 30-year-old led Buffalo defenceman with 32 points in 66 games last season, his first with the Sabres. He spent the prior two seasons with Vancouver, tallying 28 goals and 66 assists in 159 games.

Ehrhoff is not technically under contract with Kerfeld and therefore will be eligible to return to the Sabres if the NHL lockout comes to an end.

Wish he was still on Van.Most fans say we don't miss him ,but I've been watching some of the playoff games and they were playing him a ton.Great turn and burn defenseman,could skate the puck out of his zone very well.
