Rasmus Ristolainen gets power play assist in Sabres loss

Rasmus Ristolainen got his 21st assist of the season on Jack Eichel’s second period power play goal in the Sabres 4-1 loss to the Blues on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Rasmus Ristolainen seems to have taken his game to the next level this season. While Ristolainen has been a very good defenseman over the past 3 years scoring 40 points or more each season he looks to be on the verge of doing even better this season. Ristolainen has 4 goals and 21 assists through 38 games which equates to him breaking the 50 point barrier potentially. Either way Ristolainen is a very good defenseman and should be owned in all fantasy format.
