Isaac Ratcliffe: Back with AHL Chicago
Ratcliffe (upper body) was returned to AHL Chicago last Tuesday, according to the AHL transaction page.
Ratcliffe had been attending training camp with the Blues on a professional tryout prior to his release from the team. He agreed to a one-year deal with the unaffiliated Wolves in July. The 24-year-old forward registered six goals and 20 points in 47 AHL contests between Lehigh Valley and Milwaukee last season.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Isaac Ratcliffe: Suffers upper-body injury
Ratcliffe sustained an upper-body injury that will rule him out versus Chicago on Thursday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Ratcliffe is currently with the Blues on a professional tryout, so this injury isn't going to improve his chances of making the Opening Night roster. The winger failed to make an NHL appearance last season and has just 10 top-level career games under his belt. At this point, the 2017 second-round pick is unlikely to ever become more than an organizational depth piece.... See More ... See Less
Blues' Isaac Ratcliffe: Receives PTO
Ratcliffe signed a professional tryout agreement with the Blues on Thursday.
Ratcliffe previously signed a minor-league contract with the unaffiliated AHL Chicago club in July, so he'll have a fall-back option if he doesn't get a full contract with the Blues. The forward split time between Milwaukee and Lehigh Valley in the AHL last year, combining for six goals and 20 points over 47 contests. He has four points in 10 career NHL games, all with the Flyers.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Isaac Ratcliffe: Dealt to Nashville
Ratliffe was traded from Philadelphia to Nashville on Sunday in exchange for future considerations.
Ratcliffe scored four points in 10 games with the Flyers last season but hasn't seen any NHL action since. He's tallied just four points in 26 AHL games in 2022-23. The 24-year-old could see some time with the Predators as their forward group is thin at the moment.... See More ... See Less

Ratcliffe was waived by the Flyers on Friday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

Flyers' Isaac Ratcliffe: Re-ups in Philadelphia
Ratcliffe signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Tuesday.
Ratcliffe's deal carries an AAV of $813,750. The winger made 10 NHL appearances with the Flyers last year, racking up a goal and three assists. The 23-year-old should get a look in a bottom-six role at some point in 2022-23, but the two-way nature of his deal suggests he'll see more time at AHL Lehigh Valley.... See More ... See Less

Flyers' Isaac Ratcliffe: Joins taxi squad

With the Flyers off until Saturday's clash with the Kings, they shuffled around the roster, making six player transactions including the addition of Ratcliffe to the taxi squad.

Flyers' Isaac Ratcliffe: Assigned to AHL affiliate
Ratcliffe (ribs) was assigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Flyers' Isaac Ratcliffe: Skating with taxi squad
Ratcliffe (ribs) skated with the Flyers' taxi squad Saturday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Ratcliffe wasn't great during his first full AHL season in 2019-20, notching just 15 points while posting a minus-9 rating in 53 contests. The 2017 second-round pick will head to the minors as soon as he's medically cleared.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Isaac Ratcliffe: Struggling in first AHL season
Ratcliffe tallied a goal and an assist in AHL Lehigh Valley's 6-5 shootout loss to Bridgeport on Sunday.
The goal was shorthanded. With just six goals and 15 points in 52 games this season, Ratcliffe has found the transition to professional hockey a difficult one. Power forwards take notoriously long to develop and the 6-foot-5, 200-pound Ratcliffe certainly fits into that category. The good news is that Ratcliffe is just turned 21 years of age and the Flyers have the necessary depth on both their NHL roster and in their minor league system to be patient with the big man. Ratcliffe scored 50 goals in his final junior season just a year ago.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Isaac Ratcliffe: Scores in professional debut Friday
Making his professional debut Friday, Ratcliffe scored a goal in AHL Lehigh Valley's 5-2 win over Bridgeport.
The Flyers were so thrilled that Ratcliffe fell to them with the 35th overall pick last June that they signed him to an entry-level deal less than six weeks later. The hulking winger responded with a 41-goal campaign for OHL Guelph this past season. Ratcliffe has ridiculous size (6-foot-5, 205 pounds) and a sweet set of mitts. He remains a couple years away from NHL duty, but Ratcliffe gives the Flyers another potential impact prospect in their loaded farm system.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Isaac Ratcliffe: Earns ELC
Ratcliffe signed an entry-level contract with the Flyers on Thursday.
The 6-foot-6 winger fashioned 67 points (33 goals, 34 assists) over 113 games between the last two seasons with the OHL's Guelph Storm. Philadelphia realized his potential and selected him in the second round (35th overall) of this year's draft. He is just 18 years old, though, so fantasy owners should view him only as a keeper/dynasty option this early in his career.... See More ... See Less
