It’s a scary thing to have a concussion — especially these days with all we’ve learned about the devastating long-term effects that concussions can have.

Sabres forward Tyler Ennis can tell you all about the fear. He sustained a concussion Dec. 30 on a hit by Alex Ovechkin.

“It’s a really difficult thing,” Ennis told the Buffalo News today after practicing with his Sabres teammates for the first time in months.

“I went through a lot of different emotions, a lot of ups and downs, so yeah, there’s really bad days. There’s days where you feel great and there’s days where it’s tough. To say I wasn’t scared at some point would be probably a lie, but I feel so good right now. I feel great. I feel 100 percent.”

Ennis hasn’t been cleared for contact, and he reportedly won’t play in the Sabres’ final two games of the season.

But today?

“Today was a great day,” he said.
