The St. Louis Blues have signed forward Ty Rattie, the club announced Friday.

Rattie was the Blues' first selection at the 2011 draft, taken in the second round and 32nd overall.

Rattie, 19, led the Western Hockey League's Portland Winterhawks and ranked third overall in league scoring with 121 points (57 goals, 64 assists) during the 2011-12 regular season.

The six-foot, 173-pound Calgary native added a league-leading 19 goals in 21 playoff games as the Winterhawks advanced to the WHL final.

"Ty had a great offensive season and an impressive performance in the playoffs," Blues GM Doug Armstrong said in a statement. "We are excited about his potential and look forward to him joining our organization."

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
