There's some potentially worrisome news coming out of Buffalo Sabres morning skate this afternoon.

Rasmus Ristolainen appears to have suffered some kind of injury in Thursday's tilt against the Arizona Coyotes - at this point it is unknown what he's dealing with.

His absence in morning skate could be indicative of his status for tonight, as the Sabres take on the Dallas Stars.

We'll keep you posted as to whether or not he will be good to go later today.

After posting an impressive 45 points last season, Ristolainen is up to 5 assists through 13 games this season, on pace for only 31 in a full 82 games.

Here are the lines that Buffalo is rolling today.
