Rasmus Ristolainen agrees to six-year extension with Sabres

Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen has come to terms on a six-year contract with the team worth an average annual value of $5.4 million.

What It Means:

Buffalo will not only have their top defender for Thursday's season opener versus the Montreal Canadiens, but they locked him down for the next decade as well.

Turning 22 later this month, Ristolainen recorded a career-high 41 points (9 goals, 32 assists) in a full 82 games last season in Buffalo. His 45.4 Corsi For Percentage was also a career-best, while his -3.5 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength was almost as bad as the -3.7 clip from his rookie campaign.
