The Blues are adding Ty Rattie to their playoff roster after the team announced that they had recalled the forward on Monday morning.
Rattie, who spent most of the season with the American Hockey League’s Chicago Wolves, will join the Blues in Chicago for Game 4 and will likely accompany the team for the remainder of their playoff run.
Rattie, 23, saw his AHL season conclude on Saturday as the Wolves wrapped up their season and failed to make the playoffs. In 62 games with the Wolves this season, Rattie had 46 points (17 goals, 29 assists). His goal and point totals were each third on Chicago’s roster.
Rattie also has a fair amount of NHL experience, though, barring a significant injury, he is unlikely to play in any postseason game for the Blues.
The young forward spent 13 games on St. Louis’ roster in the regular season and had four goals, six assists. It was his most productive NHL stint to date and he will provide the Blues with some depth while also getting a feel for the playoff atmosphere.
In all, the 2011 second-round draft pick has played in 26 NHL games and has eight points (four goals, four assists).
