Ennis was playing in German League with Adler Mannheim this season on a one-year contract. He agreed with the management to a contract termination.
His head coach, Dallas Eakins, revealed it was quite a surprise in his latest comments:
"Yesterday morning Tyler informed me that he was retiring from hockey. At first I was surprised, but after talking to him for about two hours, I fully understand and support his decision. We were impressed with Tyler's dedication and commitment to recovering from his injury.

Tyler's experience, work ethic and personality will be missed in our locker room and our organization. We are proud of Tyler for following his heart and making this brave, personal decision. Tyler has built an amazing career through hard work and persistence. These great qualities will serve Tyler well in his next chapter.

We have Tyler's back and will always be there for him." - Dallas Eakins, Adler Mannheim Website

Ennis talked about his decision in a recent statement:
"After working hard to get healthy with our great team, I ultimately decided to quit hockey. I would like to thank Mr. Hopp, my teammates, the coaches, our medical staff and, of course our great fans for their support. I will continue to cheer on the Adler Mannheim vigorously in the future." - Tyler Ennis
