Description: Penguins defenseman Christian Ehrhoff scored another key goal for Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Insight: Ehrhoff has just two goals on the season, but both are game-winners. The defenseman was the Penguins best skater against the Senators on Saturday, and he led the team with seven shots. Sidney Crosby found him wide open on the opposite side of the ice late in the third period. Ehrhoff wound up and released a slap shot that beat Craig Anderson high and on the glove side. Pittsburgh won, 3-2.

Description: Penguins defenseman Christian Ehrhoff scored his first goal in a Pittsburgh uniform on Saturday.
Insight: It proved to be an important score as the goal put the Penguins ahead, 3-1, late in the third period. Carolina added a late power-play goal as Pittsburgh held on to win, 3-2. Ehrhoff has seven assists and is plus-14 in addition to scoring once.
10/1/2014 11:49:00 AM
Description: Penguins defenseman Christian Ehrhoff has a great chance to play on the team's power-play line this year.
Insight: Ehrhoff scored six goals and 27 assists with the Sabres last year, so it is safe to expect those numbers or even greater based just on the fact Ehrhoff will benefit from playing with Sidney Crosby and company. At the very least he should see a huge improvement in plus/minus. Ehrhoff's was -27 a year ago.
7/1/2014 8:34:00 PM
Description: After being bought out by the Sabres a couple days ago, defenseman Christian Ehrhoff signed with the Penguins Tuesday.
Insight: Ehrhoff inked a one-year deal worth $4 million. The 31-year-old Ehrhoff has averaged eight goals and 29 assists (37 points) per 82 games in his career. While the Penguins' top power-play unit has consisted of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Chris Kunitz, James Neal and Kris Letang the past few seasons, they just traded Neal and may go with Ehrhoff in his place in 2014-15.

2/1/2014 10:16:00 AM

Insight: Ehrhoff will be a game-time decision. The 31-year-old has 23 points (four goals), 20 PIM and 111 SOG in 51 games which isn't horrible considering the Sabres are the lowest scoring team in the league.
1/30/2014 7:00:00 PM

2/15/2013 10:02:00 PM
Description: Buffalo defenseman Christian Ehrhoff tallied one goal and one assists Friday against Boston.
Insight: Ehrhoff is a near-lock to produce at a 0.5 ppg pace, which is a valuable fantasy commodity when it comes to blueliners.

Description: Buffalo defenseman Christian Ehrhoff missed Tuesday's game with an undisclosed injury.
Insight: Ehrhoff led Buffalo defensemen in scoring with 32 points last season, and has five points in the team's first nine games, so he does have fantasy value when he is on the ice.

Insight: All we know about the injury right now is that Ehrhoff will definitely miss some time. Ehrhoff leads Buffalo defensemen in scoring with 32 points this season, so he does have fantasy value when he is on the ice.
12/31/2011 12:26:00 AM
Description: According to Sabres coach Lindy Ruff, Christian Ehrhoff will "miss some time ... probably weeks" after Ehrhoff left the game following a first-period fight. TSN
Insight: Ruff did not disclose the type of injury that his defenseman suffered. Ehrhoff, who signed a ten-year free agent contract in the offseason, has not been a star for fantasy teams (17 points and a -11 in 36 games). Move him to your bench.
6/30/2011 6:04:00 PM
Description: Christian Ehrhoff has agreed to terms with the Buffalo Sabres on a contract that is believed to be around ten years for $40 million. TSN
Insight: The German defenseman's negotiation rights were acquired by the Sabres the day before from the Islanders, who had themselves acquired Ehrhoff's rights from the Canucks. Ehrhoff should succeed in the Sabres' system, since they are in need of a puck-moving defenseman. Expect the Sabres to be busy in the free agent market starting July 1, as the team is now under newer, wealthier ownership.
6/29/2011 6:00:00 PM
Description: The New York Islanders have traded the rights to Christian Ehrhoff to the Buffalo Sabres for a fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft. Newsday
Insight: Ehrhoff was an Islander for around 24 hours, as he was not surprisingly unable to come to terms with the team. The Sabres, who have more money to spend this summer because of new ownership, will now attempt to sign the potential UFA defenseman.
6/28/2011 8:10:00 PM
Description: The Vancouver Canucks have traded the negotiation rights of Christian Ehrhoff to the New York Islanders for a fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft. TSN
Insight: The Islanders will now have until Friday morning to sign Ehrhoff, who will be looking for at least $5 million on the open market. If the Islanders hope to have any chance at signing Ehrhoff, he cannot hold the Isles' organization in the same regard that Evgeni Nabokov does.
6/28/2011 2:25:00 PM
Description: According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, Christian Ehrhoff will likely be a free agent on July 1. TSN
Insight: The Canucks offered Ehrhoff similar money to what Kevin Bieksa received, but it appears Ehrhoff's asking price is at least $5 million per season. The Canucks already have significant investments in Bieksa, Dan Hamhuis, and Keith Ballard, so it is unlikely that they will go too much higher with Ehrhoff. In fact, McKenzie believes that the Canucks may currently be shopping Ehrhoff's negotiation rights.
6/17/2011 3:16:00 PM
Description: Kevin Bieksa, Christian Ehrhoff, and Sami Salo all hinted that they would be willing to stay with the Canucks for less money. Globe & Mail
Insight: Bieksa stated flat out that he would take less money, Salo said that money isn't an issue, while Ehrhoff seemed to hint at it. The Canucks will have a real challenge on their hands in signing all three free agent UFA defensemen before they hit the open market on July 1.

Description: Christian Ehrhoff and Aaron Rome are both expected to be ready for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday. Vancouver Province

5/24/2011 2:39:00 PM
Description: Christian Ehrhoff won't likely play in Game 5 against San Jose on Tuesday because of a stinger. Vancouver Province
Insight: The tandem of Keith Ballard and Chris Tanev will be back in after a solid Game 4, so the Canucks won't need to rush Ehrhoff back. Ehrhoff's injury doesn't seem to be significant, although he has only been skating on his own and not practicing with the team.
