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 plus-56 with 27 penalty minutes.

Chicago finished sixth in the Central Division, missing the AHL playoffs.

 
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 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.

The St. Louis Blues were without a first round pick in the 2011 draft, but with three second round sections the club was able to add some promising prospects. Their first selection, Ty Rattie, put up impressive numbers for Portland of the WHL and was ranked as the 17th best North American skater by Central Scouting. The club also strengthened their already impressive standing between the pipes, selecting two goaltenders – Jordan Binnington and Niklas Lundstrom.

Beyond Tomorrow: Ty Rattie

When the Portland Winterhawks went into the 2008 WHL Draft it was obvious what they needed – scoring.

Coming off a season in which they scored 132 goals as a team, they wanted offensive creativity with the second pick in the WHL draft.

Ty Rattie fit the bill.

Rattie had just finished the 2007-08 season by shattering Alberta Major Bantam Hockey League (AMBHL) scoring marks in notching 75 goals and 131 points, both league records. Considering the talent that has coming through that circuit, it’s a more than impressive season.

"I really didn’t even know about the record until halfway through the season when a couple people came up to me and told me about it," he said. "I kind of kept it in the back of my mind throughout the season and thought it would be a nice accomplishment. When I broke it it felt good, but we (hosted) Western’s that year and that was the big thing.

"It’s great to look back on it and know all the great players that have been through the AMBHL, to have that kind of record is something I’ll remember forever."

Fast forward a year and a half and all the 6′ 170-pound right winger has done is continue to score.

The Airdrie, Alberta native played with the Strathmore UFA Bisons AAA midget club last year and dominated against older competition, scoring 29 goals and 54 points in 34 games, good for fourth in the Alberta Midget Hockey League (AMHL). He even manag Read more»
