In fact, things have been going so well that we've barely had any time to check in on one of the team's most exciting prospects - Ty Rattie. The 2013-14 campaign was supposed to be a telling one for Rattie as he made the jump from the WHL to the AHL. How has Rattie responded to stiffer competition? Let's just say there's still a lot to be excited about.  Rattie has scored 17 goals and 10 assists in 44 games with the Chicago Wolves.

Recap: Sens deal Blues first home loss vs. East

Blues raise their expectations for Reaves
