Ty Rattie is arguably the best Chicago Wolves forward prospect. His first full season in the AHL is also making that sentiment hard to argue against. The 21-year old has a team-leading 22 goals for the Wolves and has been a bright spot on a Wolves team firmly entrenched in a playoff spot, having earned a point in 17 straight at home. That streak is a team record. The former Portland Winterhawk will continue to make noise in the AHL, as the parent club St. Louis Blues is notably deep at right wing. That being said, Rattie is happy to contribute. “Anybody wants to come in and contribute and help this team win,” said Rattie. “I feel like I have a lot more confidence and I feel like I belong.” AHL veteran and teammate Keith Aucoin sees a bright future for Rattie. “Ty is a young guy…it takes time to get used to the AHL,” said Aucoin. I think he’s adapted great to it.” The Blues made a trade Sunday afternoon that affected the Chicago Wolves. Forward Mark Mancari was traded to the Florida Panthers for forward Eric Selleck. “Mark is a really good Anderson, and a good player,” said Anderson. “We felt we had other needs. As much as we like Mark, and we brought him in here, we had to do what was right for the team.” Mancari, 28, had 9 goals and 31 with Chicago. That was good for second on the team behind Corey Locke. Locke was moved to Abbottsford earlier in the season. Selleck, 26, had 7 points and 93 penalty minutes for Florida’s AHL affiliate in San Antonio.
