|St. Louis Blues|
|Written by Brendan Ross|
March 2013 - Ty Rattie finished the 2012-2013 WHL regular season with 110 points which was good enough for third place in league scoring trailing only his teammates Leipsic and Petan (120 points). Rattie's 48 goals placed him second in WHL goal scoring after and were nine shy of setting a career high in tallies. Rattie remains a top notch goal scoring prosect and he should take his Portland Winterhawks deep into the playoffs on his goal scoring prowess alone. Brendan Ross
December 2012 - Rattie was named to the final squad representing Canada at the WJC. Rich Dillon
December 2012 - Ty Rattie was one of 21 forwards invited to take part in Canada's National Junior Selection camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. Rattie will be competing for a spot on the team as a scorer and I personally like him on the right side of a potential line featuring Hudon and Strome. Brendan Ross
October, 2012 - Off to a slow start on the season with no goals and one assist in his first five games. Also sat out a game with a suspension for a stick infraction. Rich Dillon
August, 2012 - Quoted from Report Cards of Canada-Russia Challenge Article: Playing in a top-six role, Ty Rattie was crucial to Canada’s success as the team won in each game he scored. With a two-goal, three-point effort in game four, Rattie fought hard to earn his points battling defensemen in the crease for positioning. Rattie showed a new level of physicality that I hadn’t previously witnessed venturing into the dirty areas and winning puck battles. Offensively, Rattie has a unique gift and as he develops into a complete player, I truly feel he will become one of the better fantasy players from the 2012 draft class…if he can overcome the Blues’ ridiculous depth on forward. He has a real knack for being in the right place at the right time and that cannot be taught. Brendan Ross
July 2012 – Rattie has signed his three year entry level contract with the Blues. Rattie will be hard pressed to earn a spot in St.Louis this year as the depth chart is rather clogged. He is not eligible to play in the AHL, so he will likely go back to dominate with Portland. He does need to add muscle to his frame for when he jumps to be a professional. He must also show up on the world stage be making Team Canada and leading their potent offence in the World Juniors. It will not be expected Rattie will need time in the AHL to develop, but if Portland is eliminated from playoffs late in the season, he could join Peoria for their playoff run as a ringer. Jason Banks
May 2012 – Rattie’s regular season success carried over to the playoffs where he had 33 points in 21 games, leading his team to one game within the Memorial Cup. He was second in the playoff scoring race and will push hard at Blues camp next fall to make the big club. Zenon Herasymiuk
February 2012 – Rattie is an offensive spark plug that has very good smarts and always seems to be around the puck. Through 55 games this year, Rattie has totaled 97 points, including 48 goals and 49 assists. If he can build strength and continue to become a more complete player, Rattie could challenge for a spot on the Blues next year. If not, expect him to make Canada’s World Junior team and set the WHL on fire again. Zenon Herasymiuk
Fantasy Outlook: B+
Great offensive player. Has a lot of work to do before he becomes an NHL player.
