Rasmus Ristolainen has chipped in three assists and has a minus-5 rating in seven games this season.
"I've just got to get better," Ristolainen said Thursday. "That's it. I don't think I find one area that's been good all the time, but it's just all-around. I've got to just be better everywhere." Coach Phil Housley likes the defenseman's compete level, but he would like to see him make "more puck decisions, doing things a little faster, getting back harder on the breakout, working for his partner a little bit better, getting shots off quicker in the offensive zone."
