Rasmus Ristolainen (upper body) took part in Wednesday's practice.
Sabres coach Phil Housley described Ristolainen as "very close" to returning while Ristolainen seemed even more upbeat. "I told everyone I'm ready," said Ristolainen. "I'm in good shape right now. I felt good. I felt fresh, and the legs were going. It's been long weeks lately, and I'm excited to get back." Ristolainen was hurt on Nov. 2 and his absence has been a big blow to the Sabres as he had been averaging 27:10 minutes per game. He isn't expected to play on Wednesday, but perhaps he'll return as early as Friday. Nov 22 - 12:18 PM
