Martin Erat

* averaged 50 points a season over a six-year stretch
* scored 372 points in 583 NHL games
* scored 14 points in 16 World Championship games
* played in two Olympics and was a star of the 2001 Memorial Cup

During the 200607 NHL season, Erat emerged as a legitimate first line player, tallying 57 points in only 68 games. Most often, Erat teamed with Paul Kariya and David Legwand to form the team's top unit. Erat missed the final 5 weeks of the season with a torn MCL.

Once again playing for Nashville in 200708, Erat posted a career high 23 goals, and added 34 assists to once again reach the 57 point plateau.

He is also known for his wrist shot and his speed.

Erat played for the Czech Republic at the World Junior Championships in 2001. He helped the team to win the gold medal. In 2006, Erat played for the bronze medal winning Czech national team at the Turin Olympics. In the same year, Erat was a member of the silver medal winning team from the IIHF World Championships in Riga, Latvia.

Following the 200708 season, Erat signed a 7 year, $31.5 million dollar contract with the Predators.

He has two career hat tricks, the first against the Edmonton Oilers, and the second versus the Vancouver Canucks on December 8, 2009.
