He scored 48 goals, one fewer than team leader Leipsic, and had 62 assists in 62 games; finishing plus-56 with 27 penalty minutes. Portland dominated the league; finishing first overall and advancing to the WHL Finals for the third straight year.

Talent Analysis

Rattie is adept at locating open ice in the attacking zone. He is the epitome of a player with a “nose for the net”. What makes Rattie most valuable is his obvious thought process on the ice. He is not a powerful skater, yet he seems to be able to hang on to the puck when it matters most. He is a versatile forward and a consistent special teams player. Rattie will need to work on his defensive game at the professional level.

Future

Rattie attended training camp with St. Louis before being assigned to AHL affiliate Chicago to start the 2014-15 season. Now in his second pro season, he was off to a fast start with the Wolves, scoring 11 goals in his first 20 games. Rattie's goal scoring has been a constant throughout his career. He must continue to refine the other areas of his game if he is to have an opportunity to crack what is a young and talented Blues' lineup. Long-term he has the potential to be a consistent scorer at the NHL level.

With a very strong draft last year, the St. Louis Blues have put together a very promising group of prospects at the junior level. Leading the charge is the doubled-headed dragon of Ivan Barbashev and Robby Fabbri, who have helped replenish the center depth in the Blues’ system. Read more»
