Insight: Phoenix went 2-1 in his absence. Erat has only scored two goals in 57 contests this season. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere.
 
3/13/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Phoenix winger Martin Erat (upper body) will not play Thursday against Boston, according to the Coyotes on Twitter.
Insight: Erat has picked up one point in four games since the Capitals traded him to the Coyotes. The 32-year-old has 25 points (two goals) in 57 games.
 
3/4/2014 8:11:00 PM
Description: The Capitals have traded winger Martin Erat and prospect John Mitchelle to Phoenix for defenseman Rostislav Klesla, prospect Chris Brown and a fourth-round pick in 2015, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post.
Insight: Erat has skated just 14:44 per game this season and produced one goal, 23 assists and 46 SOG in 53 games for the Caps. His fantasy value can only improve through the trade, but that doesn't mean he'll be a fantasy option.
 
10/19/2013 10:43:00 PM
Description: Capitals winger Martin Erat moved up to the second line and had three assists Saturday night.
Insight: Erat produced between 49-58 points in every season from 2003-04 to 2011-12, but he skated just 8:46 per game as a member of the fourth line this season and didn't have a point until Saturday. He should remain on the second line with Brooks Laich and Troy Brouwer.
 
10/18/2013 4:28:00 PM
Description: After playing just 8:46 per game as a fourth-line winger over the first seven games this season, Martin Erat will move up to the Capitals second line.
Insight: Erat produced between 49-58 points in every season from 2003-04 to 2011-12 and he had 21 points in 36 games with Nashville before being traded last season, but in 16 games with Washington he has one goal and three points. Skating with Brooks Laich and Troy Brouwer on the second line should help him see more ice time -- Brouwer is skating 18:49 per game this season.

Insight: Erat has been held scoreless in his last four games, but posted 19 goals and 39 assists last season, including 18 power play points and a solid +12 rating. He's Nashville's best fantasy forward, but that isn't saying much.

Insight: Erat was the victim of a late hit from Jarkko Ruutu, a hit that Ruutu is reportedly speaking to the league about. Each team has commented negatively about the other team's style of play, so expect more rough stuff to happen during Game 5.

Description: Martin Erat returned to the Predators' lineup on Saturday after being sidelined since December 23 with an upper-body injury. Nashville Tennessean
Insight: As a result of Erat's return, new acquisition Marek Svatos was a healthy scratch. Erat can be productive in fantasy leagues, although he tends to be a streaky scorer.

Insight: Erat has just five goals this season, although he missed seven games because of back spasms. After a slow start, he is heating up in December with ten points (3g-7a) and a +7 in eight games. Because of the hot streak, Erat is worth adding in fantasy leagues right now.
