ST. LOUIS - Center Jori Lehtera could be back in the line-up soon as St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong announced Monday that the team has assigned forward Ty Rattie to the Chicago Wolves (AHL).
Rattie, 22, played in five games during his call-up. He logged his first point in the NHL in Friday's game against Columbus. Rattie's assignment likely indicates Lehtera's return to the line-up.
Lehtera has been missing from the ice since January 29th when the center began suffering from concussion symptoms. He was still showing symptoms last Wednesday, but Lehtera skated with teammate Chris Porter Saturday. Porter is working his way back from a broken ankle.
