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.


Rattie spent the bulk of the 2015-16 season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves, appearing in 13 NHL games with the Blues in his third pro season. Now at the end of his original three-year contract, he would become an unrestricted free agent if not tendered a contract offer by St. Louis. Rattie has been a consistent scorer in the AHL but has yet to earn the trust of the Blues' coaching staff - while youngsters like Robby Fabbri and Dmitrij Jaskin are seeing ice time in St. Louis and veteran Troy Brouwer was acquired from Washington. Rattie's skill set suggests he can be a consistent second or third line scorer but the clock is ticking for the 23-year-old.

There may not be a better drafting team in the second round than the St. Louis Blues. They have found plenty of gems beyond the first round – from Steve Staios, Igor Korolev, Jay McClement, and Jochen Hecht to David Backes and Jake Allen – and the same can be said for 2011. Read more»

The St. Louis Blues prospect pool has seen some ups and downs over the past season but the positives have certainly made a difference for the NHL club. Robby Fabbri and Colton Parayko have been welcomed additions to the franchise and do not seem to be moving anytime soon. With their NHL careers taking off in style, both players have hit graduation, which has opened the door for other Blues prospects to move up the list. Read more»

The St. Louis Blues have had a few prospects at the NHL level due to their injuries woes this season. With significant time missed by Jake Allen, Patrik Berglund, Kevin Shattenkirk, Paul Stastny and Jaden Schwartz, the Blues have turned to some younger players. While some made the most of their limited opportunities, others have been impressing since the very start of the season. Colton Parayko has been the big story out of St. Louis this season and Joel Edmundson has been a welcomed addition to their defensive group.

St. Louis Blues have positions of strength on display in the minors

Ivan Barbashev - St. Louis Blues

The St. Louis Blues have a plethora of talented prospects and many of them play in the AHL. While a few have received NHL opportunities over the last year, others are still finding their footing at the ripe age of 21 or 22. The goaltending prospects are incredibly talented and the defensive group looks very promising. At forward, the Blues have plenty of big names on the prospect front but will be patient with their development. Several of these young players will benefit from larger opportunities which will likely happen at the minor league level.

While the top three prospects have shifted positions over the past few seasons, the St. Louis Blues have added tremendous depth to their pipeline over the past two years. Despite a somewhat quiet outing at the 2015 Draft the team is poised to reap the benefits of its pipeline soon. 2014 first-round pick Robby Fabbri is showing signs of being an NHL-ready player while 2014 second-rounder Ivan Barbashev also looks like a future Blue. Apart from those two, the amount of goaltending talent in the system is simply phenomenal – with a good talent like Luke Opilka not even making the cut – and that could one day stabilize a position that has been a weak point in otherwise excellent teams.
