– After the Sabres drafted Rasmus Ristolainen last month, amateur scouting director Kevin Devine said the 18-year-old defenseman could play in Rochester if he doesn’t make the big club.

On Wednesday, though, Ristolainen said he had a European contract and didn’t think he could play in the minors.

Regier said Friday playing arrangements would be negotiated in Ristolainen’s NHL contract. Hours later, the Sabres signed the eighth overall pick to a three-year, entry-level deal.

No details about were given. Regier said the Sabres would prefer to have the Finn develop close to Buffalo.
