Plus he's performed well enough to make the team, if he was 19 he'd be getting a long look that's for sure.
If I was making the team I wouldn't care if he's 16 or 19. If he's going to help the team win the gold I put him on the team.
I love Rattie and think he's a great player, but chemistry or not Team Canada brass tends to not take 17 year olds. It's just the way it is.
I think he deserves an invite for sure, but if he doesn't get one I wouldn't be shocked for a second.
