Overview

Martin Erat was selected 191st overall, in the 7th round of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. He was selected as the 12th choice of the Nashville Predators. He plays for Nashville.

Erat made a splash in his NHL rookie year 2001-2002 as a member of the "Vowel line" which consisted himself on left wing, Vladimir Orszagh on right wing, and Denis Arkhipov at center. That year he set a Nashville rookie record for games played (80), assists (23), and points (32).

His first National Hockey League point was a game winning goal against the Calgary Flames on October 11, 2001. His first NHL playoff point was an assist in the 2004 Western Conference Quarterfinals in a 2-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on January 19, 2004.

Erat struggled during his sophomore season 2002-2003 and spent the majority of the season with the Predator's minor league affiliate the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

He came roaring back however in his third season 2003-2004. He had career highs with goals (13), assists (33), and points (49). He also ranked second on the team with a +10 rating.
