This isn't the quote I'm looking for, but here are his thoughts on the position when they tried him as a pivot back in Portland.

Quote:
"(Buffalo) really wants all of its (forwards) to know how to play different positions," he said. "They told me in juniors that they'd like me to try and learn how to play center, so I tried it for a few games and then went back to wing. But I played center all through training camp this year and have stuck with it here in Portland."

The position change has proved challenging at times for Ennis, who said the technical aspect of faceoffs is one area that he has particularly needed to focus on improving. He also finds himself trailing the play into the offensive zone more as a center, as opposed to primarily leading the rush on the one of the wings.
He had a solid 25 or so games as a center there, but after a 10 game pointless streak, got shifted back to the wing.
