Top Rasmus Ristolainen News

  • Flyers' Rasmus Ristolainen: Two points in victory

    Ristolainen tallied a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.

    Ristolainen gave Philadelphia a 2-1 lead with a shorthanded goal in the second period, his first tally of the season. The 28-year-old defenseman added an assist on Morgan Frost's goal later in the frame. While Tuesday's performance was impressive, multi-point games shouldn't be expected from Ristolainen going forward -- the two-point effort doubled his point total this year. Ristolainen now has four points, 86 hits, and 92 blocked shots through 38 games while playing on the Flyers' bottom defensive pair.

  • Flyers' Rasmus Ristolainen: Targeting Thursday return

    Ristolainen (lower body) is hoping to suit up against the Panthers on Thursday, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.

    Ristolainen has yet to get onto the ice this season due to his lingering lower-body issue. Once given the all-clear, the blueliner is likely to relegate Egor Zamula from a spot in the lineup, though Nick Seeler could also be in danger of missing out.

  • Flyers' Rasmus Ristolainen: Exits practice early

    Ristolainen left Wednesday's practice session early with an undisclosed injury, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Coach John Tortorella didn't have an update on Ristolainen's status following practice, raising doubts regarding his availability for the season opener versus New Jersey on Thursday. If Ristolainen does miss out, it would likely open a lineup spot for Nick Seeler, while Travis Sanheim could be moved into a power-play role.

  • Flyers' Rasmus Ristolainen: Back in action

    Ristolainen (upper body) will participate in Friday's intrasquad scrimmage, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

    Ristolainen's disappointing 2021-22 ended early with just 16 points in 66 contests. The 27-year-old defenseman will likely see his role further reduced with the presence of Tony DeAngelo as the Flyers' new power-play quarterback in 2022-23, so Ristolainen is a fade in nearly all fantasy formats.
