NHL Draft: Winterhawks forward Ty Rattie taken by St. Louis in second round. The Oregonian. Retrieved on 2011-06-27.</ref> He was ranked 17th among draft eligble prospects by Central Scouting. 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." Rattie was the first draft pick Armstrong made as the Blues' scouting director.
Rattie was raised in Airdrie, Alberta. 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. 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) and "led Portland with a plus-11 rating in 21 playoff games" as they reached the WHL finals."
|“||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."||”|
