The St. Louis Blues are dealing with injuries late in their 2015-16 season, including a recent one to forward Alex Steen and another to goaltender Brian Elliott.
As a result, the club recalled forward Ty Rattie from the Chicago Wolves of the AHL late on Tuesday afternoon:
Drafted 32nd overall by the Blues at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Rattie has split his time this season between the Wolves in Chicago and the team’s NHL club in St. Louis. A former Portland Winterhawks forward, the Calgary native boasts three goals and five points in 11 games for St. Louis on the season – an improvement from just two assists in 11 games last year – and 26 points in 41 AHL games as well.
With Rattie on the team’s roster, St. Louis will hope to come back from a tough 6-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Monday as they head into the week; they don’t play again until Thursday, when they face the New York Rangers, but having Rattie already helps head coach Ken Hitchcock figure out his new lines.
In addition to the recall of Rattie, the Blues officially recalled goaltender Pheonix Copley earlier today.
