Ty Rattie (born February 5, 1993)[1] is a Canadian junior ice hockey player currently playing for the Chicago Wolves in the American Hockey League (AHL)the minor league team of the St. Louis Blues located in Rosemont, IL.

Playing career[edit]

In June 2011, the St. Louis Blues made Rattie their first draft pick and the 32nd overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[2] He was ranked 17th among draft eligible prospects by Central Scouting.[3] Blues' scouting director Bill Armstrong stating about him "He's someone that we liked because of his high skill level. Obviously, he's got some work to do as far as his strength, but he has been able to put up points his whole life at every level."[4] Rattie was the first draft pick Armstrong made as the Blues' scouting director.[5]

Rattie was raised in Airdrie, Alberta.[citation needed] The Winterhawks made Rattie the 2nd overall selection in the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft, behind only Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who was drafted first overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[6][7][8] During the Winterhawks 2010–11 season, Rattie had 28 goals and 51 assists in 67 games; he was a playoff scoring leader with 22 points (9 goals, 13 assists)[2] and "led Portland with a plus-11 rating in 21 playoff games" as they reached the WHL finals."[1]

In 2011–2012, Rattie was named Canadian Hockey League player of the week for the week of November 21 to November 27.[9] He was also named WHL player of the month for November, for scoring 16 goals and 28 points in 11 games. In the 2012–13 WHL season, after the Winterhawks won the WHL championship, Rattie was awarded the airBC Trophy after being named the 2013 WHL Playoff MVP.[10]

He made his NHL debut with the St. Louis Blues on April 11, 2014, against the Dallas Stars.[11]

Rattie is a player who could stickhandle his way out of a phone booth. He’s not the fastest and he’s certainly not the strongest but he always seems to win space and he simply knows exactly what to do with that space around the puck. He has an excellent release on his shot and places the puck very well. He tends to lean heavier on shooting the puck rather than passing the puck but he can surprise with his creativity and underrated playmaking ability."
