  • Sabres' Rasmus Ristolainen: Productive in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/19) Ristolainen provided a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.

    The Finnish defenseman recorded three hits and two blocked shots in the contest. Ristolainen has three assists and 33 hits over his last eight appearances. For the season, he's up to 39 points in 66 games with 203 hits, and he has 104 blocks and 159 shots on goal as well. With production across so many categories and a coveted first-unit power-play position, Ristolainen is a valuable defenseman to fantasy owners that can offset his minus-33 rating.

    Sabres' Rasmus Ristolainen: Will play against Panthers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/19) Ristolainen (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Mike Harrington of TBN Sports reports.

    It looks like the big Finn will manage to avoid even one game off after getting banged up. Ristolainen has 36 points in 58 games, and is a key cog on the power play. He'll face a Panthers team that ranks in the bottom five in GAA.

    Sabres' Rasmus Ristolainen: Game-time decision

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/19) Ristolainen (undisclosed) will be a game-time call versus the Panthers on Tuesday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Ristolainen was absent from practice and coach Phil Housley didn't provide any additional details in regard to the nature of the defenseman's issue. If Zach Bogosian (undisclosed) is also unable to suit up Tuesday, the Sabres may need to bring in a player from the minors to fill out their blue line.

    Sabres' Rasmus Ristolainen: Puts body on line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/19) Ristolainen had a power-play assist and five blocked shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.

    This is the third time Ristolainen has blocked five shots in a game this season. More notably, the assist extended his point streak to four games, and the Finnish blueliner has registered nine assists over his last nine games. With 36 points in 54 games, including 12 on the power play, Ristolainen is a high-end No. 2 defenseman despite the minus-16 rating he carries.

    Sabres' Rasmus Ristolainen: Riding four-game point streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/30/19) Ristolainen will look to extend his point streak to five games during Wednesday's meeting with Dallas.

    Ristolainen picked up an assist in Tuesday's win over Columbus, and now has four assists in his past four games, but also has a minus-5 rating during that span. He's amassed 31 points in 49 games this season, putting him on pace for a career-high 51 points.
