Good article on Rattie. Here's an excerpt.

Quote:
“Ty is the best goal-scorer in the league, but it’s more than that,” said linemate Brad Ross, whose hat trick Friday night was aided by Rattie’s two helpers. “He has a complete game. He backchecks, he forechecks.

“He is probably the best player in our league. When he straps on the skates, he leads by example out there.”

I watched a lot of Hawk games last season and didn’t see this coming. How has Rattie gone from just another good player to, in the words of coach Mike Johnston, “an elite level”?

“The biggest thing is confidence,” Rattie said. “Your third year in the league, you know what to expect. It’s a 72-game grind. My confidence is flying high right now.”
