The drama surrounding the future of Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen took another turn when he implied that he has asked to be traded during an interview with Finnish television outlet MTV Sports.
According to a translation of the interview, Ristolainen said he wanted to keep the discussions with Sabres' management private.
Ristolainen's future has been a question, especially as the Sabres have added an abundance of defensemen this offseason.
"I cannot say anything other than the fact that on the 12th of September, I will be at one of the NHL team's training camps," he said.
The headline of the MTV Sports article reads, "Ristolainen dissatisfied with situation with Buffalo Sabres – wants to move elsewhere."
MTV Sports is the same news outlet that reported months ago that Ristolainen would not be back with the Sabres, though, the team would have to make a move for that to be the case.
