RASMUS RISTOLAINEN  Finland Open print friendly window (pop-up)

BIRTHYEAR 1994-10-27 BIRTHPLACETurku, FIN
AGE 20 NATION Finland
POSITION D SHOOTS R
HEIGHT 192 cm6'4" WEIGHT 94 kg207 lbs
YOUTH TEAM TPS CONTRACT 15/16
NHL DRAFT 2013 round 1 #8 overall by Buffalo Sabres
CAP HIT $925,000


One of the best defensemen of his age group, Ristolainen was a top-prospect for the 2013 NHL Draft. He is a calm player with good two-way ability and a mature style of play, though his defensive awareness and positioning still need work. More mobile and offensive than Buffalo's other 2013 1st round pick Nikita Zadorov, Ristolainen moves the puck with confidence, has a good shot from the point and has displayed ability to work the powerplay in SM-liiga. Ristolainen has an NHL-ready frame and has gained a lot of strength while playing in SM-liiga and though he is not a big-time hitter, he feels comfortable playing the body and likes to get physical in front of the net.(Matias Strozyk, 2013)
