Raty is one of the more interesting prospects in this class. His vision is excellent, finding the lanes very well and processing how the game is evolving around him and reacting. He’s a premier playmaker with a big bag of tricks. He can pass effortlessly on his backhand, including no-look and behind his back. His puck control is very good, with hands that are deceptive and fast. He can maneuver the puck through small gaps in sticks and skates, which helps him a lot in 50-50 puck battles. He displays good effort offensively, pushing the pace, forcing turnovers and making a consistent effort to leave his mark. He’s not particularly big, but there are some power elements to his game. He’s hard to slow down when he gets the puck with a head of steam. He knows how to cut players off, with or without the puck, cutting through player’s hands to create space, and protect the puck. His shot can be a weapon at times, but he can revert to a sweeping shot from the perimeter often as well. After gaining the zone at times, he can tend to lose his dynamic posture, resorting to the “A” stance and losing his mobility. Battles very hard for the puck in the corners and along the boards. On one occasion, he wasn’t giving his all when defending the rush, coasting on the way back and skating by the open man in front of the net, who shortly after scored, undefended. What really holds him back is his hockey sense. He’s a very single-track-minded player, as he’ll pick something that he wants to try and then get blinders on about doing it, failing to adjust if necessary or to spot better options. He often tries to force the play he wants, and that makes him easier to defend. Without the puck he doesn’t do enough checking over his shoulder or keeping his head on a swivel, which causes him to lose his defensive coverage or skate away from the action at others. His skating mechanics are a little choppy as well, almost like he’s stomping around the ice at times. Raty has a bit of trouble turning and changing direction. His movement just isn’t smooth overall, forcing him to rely on his leg power and balance instead.
