|St. Louis Blues|

June, 2012 – Philip McRae is a good power forward prospect who has the skill set and intangibles of a future NHL player. How good he is in fantasy hockey, and how long it takes for him to post good statistics, remains to be seen. McRae had a decent AHL season with 39 points in 71 games in Peoria, however it was not enough to gain further NHL experience in St. Louis after a 15-game call-up in 2010-11. He is a candidate to make it on the Blues’ roster in the fall, but the arrival of Vladimir Tarasenko will hurt those odds. Look for McRae to split time between the AHL and NHL next season, followed by a slow rise in the depth chart after a few seasons playing in the bottom six.
McRae has upside, but is several years away from making an impact. He is a pretty safe bet to make it as a depth forward in the NHL.
McRae shows some roto league potential with a decent effort in a fight:
