History

2007-08: Ty Rattie played for the Airdrie Xtreme Bantam AAA squad, scoring 75 goals and adding 56 assists for 131 points in 33 games. Rattie also picked up 101 penalty minutes on the season. In 10 playoff games for the Xtreme, he scored 12 goals and added 11 assists for 23 points. Rattie was chosen in the first round, second overall, of the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft by the Portland Winterhawks.

2008-09: Rattie began the season with the UFA Bisons Midget AAA team, playing in 34 games with that team. He scored 29 goals and added 25 assists for 54 points. Rattie joined the Portland Winterhawks for 10 games, scoring 1 goal during that stint.

2009-10: In his WHL rookie season, Rattie scored 17 goals and added 20 assists for 37 points in 61 games. In 13 playoff games, he scored 2 goals and added 2 assists for 4 points. Rattie also played for Team Pacific at the 2010 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, scoring 2 goals and adding 7 assists for 9 points in 5 games.

2010-11: In 67 games for the Winterhawks, Rattie scored 28 goals and added 51 assists for 79 points.

2011-12: Rattie returned to Portland after attending the Blues camp and was the WHL's third-leading scorer playing alongside Calgary prospect Sven Bartschi. He scored 57 goals with 64 assists and was plus-23 with 54 penalty minutes. Portland reached the WHL Finals after finishing second in the U.S. Division during the season. Rattie scored 19 goals with 14 assists and was plus-10 with 12 penalty minutes in 21 playoff games.

2012-13: Rattie was the WHL's third-leading scorer behind Portland teammates Brendan Leipsic (Nashville) and Nicolas Petan (Winnipeg) in his fourth season with the Winterhawks. He scored 48 goals, one fewer than team leader Leipsic, and had 62 assists in 62 games; finishing +56 with 27 penalty minutes. Portland dominated the league; finishing first overall and advancing to the WHL Finals for the third straight year. The Winterhawks defeated Edmonton for their first WHL championship and reached the Memorial Cup championship game against Halifax. Rattie scored 20 goals with 16 assists in 21 WHL playoff games and was +14 with 17 penalty minutes. In five games at the Memorial Cup he scored 6 goals with 6 assists and was +6 with 6 penalty minutes. Rattie skated for fourth-place Canada in the 2013 World Junior Championship and had 3 goals in six games.

 

Talent Analysis

Much like Nugent-Hopkins, 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. A versatile forward and a consistent special teams player.

 

Future

If it were not for the depth at forward, Rattie may have the skill to get a start at the NHL level. After destroying the WHL with the Portland Winterhawks, Rattie will make his professional debut in 2013-14, where his size will still remain a question. He has proven to have a nose for the net, but will need to work on his defensive game at the professional level. There is nothing but high hopes for this youngster, so hopefully he takes the right steps to hit his full potential.

Last season, the St. Louis Blues looked quite thin down the middle and had very few standout players at other levels of hockey. After the 2014 NHL Draft, the Blues look much better at center with the additions of Ivan Barbashev and Robby Fabbri. They also continue to maintain strong depth at the goaltending position, as both Jordan Binnington and Jake Allen are considered high-level prospects.

While Jake Allen has enjoyed a long run as the St. Louis Blues’ top prospect since Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz graduated, the time has come for the young goaltender to pass the torch. The key additions to the Fall 2014 Top 20 include the Blues’ top two picks from the 2014 NHL Draft, Robby Fabbri and Ivan Barbashev. As new players make their way onto the list, others like Yannick Veilleux, Petteri Lindbohm and Sergei Andronov have been forced to take a back seat in the latest edition of the Blues’ Top 20.

While the St. Louis Blues have not won a Stanley Cup, the current team they have put together seems to be on the right track.  There are very few holes on the NHL team, but they are running out of resources at the lower levels of hockey.
