Edmonton, AB – Portland Winterhawks star Ty Rattie set a new WHL record for career playoff goals, netting his 48th, 49th and 50th of his career in a 5-1 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings in the WHL Championship series on Sunday, May 12th, in Edmonton, AB.
The 19-year-old from Airdrie, AB, was tied with former Medicine Hat
Tiger Mark Pederson at 47 career post-season goals prior to Sunday’s hat
trick performance. Pederson’s record, which he set in 71 career games
played, had stood since 1988.
Rattie, who was the Winterhawks’ first-round pick, 2nd
overall, in the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft, has played 76 career playoff
games for Portland, helping them reach the WHL Championship series in
each of the last three years. A St. Louis Blues prospect, Rattie has
piled up 50 goals and 95 points in his WHL playoff career, placing him
third on the WHL list of career playoff points.
Rattie has played four seasons with the Winterhawks, scoring 151 goals and 348 points in 269 career regular-season games.
