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.
