Top 40 Countdown: No. 11

Who has scored more goals than any other Wolves player over the last decade? The answer can be found at No. 11 on the Wolves’ Top 40 Goal-Scorers Countdown, presented by Jewel-Osco.

Between the 2012-13 and the 2013-14 seasons, the Wolves ended their partnership with the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks and started one with the St. Louis Blues. At the time, the Blues had two 20-year-old forwards projected as big-time scorers: Ty Rattie and Dmitrij Jaskin.


While Jaskin never spent a full season with the Wolves because the Blues decided they needed his power-forward style in the NHL midway through his first season as a pro, Rattie spent nearly all of his rookie season in Chicago and didn’t take long to become a big-time scorer.

The 32nd overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft scored his first professional goal in his third pro game, recorded his first multi-goal effort in his 10th pro game and wound up with 31 goals in 72 games during the 2013-14 regular season while helping the Wolves win the Midwest Division crown. That tied Rattie with Grand Rapids’ Teemu Pulkkinen for most goals by a rookie and shared fourth place overall in the AHL. Rattie also earned his first two NHL games with the Blues.

The Calgary, Alberta, native spent most of the next two seasons in Chicago as well and rang up 38 goals and 50 assists in 121 games. During the 2015-16 season, Rattie received an extended look with St. Louis and scored his first three NHL goals in a four-game stretch Jan. 12-20.

Rattie capped his four-year run with the Wolves in 2016-17 when he contributed two goals in 22 regular-season games and two more in nine Calder Cup Playoff appearances.

For his Wolves career, Rattie amassed 71 goals and 70 assists in 215 regular-season games. In addition to ranking 11th on the franchise’s all-time goal-scoring list, he stands 18th on the points list with 141.

After posting 13 goals in 99 NHL appearances for the Blues, Carolina Hurricanes and Edmonton Oilers, the 28-year-old has spent the last two seasons playing overseas. He posted 7 goals in 28 games this season for Assat Pori in Finland’s top pro league. Sebastian Wannstrom, his former Wolves teammate, led Assat Pori with 33 goals in 58 games.
