Ristolainen picked up two power-play assists and three shots on goal during Tuesday's 5-4 win against Ottawa.

Ristolainen has yet to light the lamp this season, but he does have 11 helpers to his name. The 22-year-old is the top option among the Sabres' blueliners, but he hasn't finished any of his three campaigns thus far with a positive rating. He's at minus-5 this year, and considering how many of his points come on the power play, it's going to be tough for him to turn that around.
