Despite the fact that Rasmus Ristolainen had a breakout season in 2015-16, the talented defenseman thinks he can get even better this upcoming campaign.
Ristolainen didn't like his play in the second half and thought he could improve his consistency starting this year. "The first 40 games, they were pretty good and after that, I was struggling a little bit. I was up and down, some good games and some bad games and that’s what I want to get batter at next year" said Ristolainen. Given that he registered 41 points with an emerging Buffalo squad, including 21 power-play points, an improvement would push Ristolainnen into the elite rearguard bracket in the NHL. It will be interesting to see if he can make that jump. Jun 4 - 9:42 AM
