“It’s not my position to be in this. I’m not 21 years old waiting for somebody to get hurt or somebody to play bad. It’s not in my system,” Erat said. “In my 12 years I’ve never played less than 10 minutes. It’s kind of new for me. I have to stay in shape in case something happens, but we’ll see what’s going to happen.“

Each time he’s been asked about Erat’s ice time, Coach Adam Oates cites the difficulty in finding playing time for all of Washington’s forwards. There’s been trouble in determining where Erat fits now that Brooks Laich, who was injured last year at the trade deadline, is healthy.

Erat is a good player and that organization moved a former top-10 pick in Forsberg for him who is already in the NHL.
