Erat will suit up for the Czech Republic in the upcoming World Championships, , reports Sarah McLellan of AZ Central.

Erat had another disappointing season with nine goals and 32 points, while sporting a minus-16 rating. His days of reaching the 20-goal and 50-point marks are clearly over at this stage of his career. The veteran is an unrestricted free agent and unlikely to return to the rebuilding Coyotes.

Erat picked up an assist on the Coyotes' lone goal Saturday in a 2-1 loss to the Ducks. He added one hit in the game.

Erat finishes the season with nine goals and 32 points, and a minus-16 rating, in 79 games. The veteran winger is an unrestricted free agent in the off-season and, with Arizona re-building, he is most likely destined somewhere else for 2015-16.

Erat picked up an assist Thursday in a 4-3 overtime win over the Sabres. He was plus-2 with three shots on the night.

Erat has reached the 30-point plateau for the first time since 2010-11. The decline in his production over the past couple of years has been stark and the veteran winger's best fantasy days are in the past, but he has at least ensured his playing days aren't over and is an option in deep leagues again.

Erat (upper body) will play in Sunday's game against the Canucks, Craig Morgan of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Erat made it through warmups without incident, allowing him to rejoin the lineup after an absence of just one game. He hasn't scored a point through his first eight appearances in March.

Erat (upper body) appears likely to suit up Sunday against the Canucks, Craig Morgan of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Erat still needs to get through warmups without any setbacks, but it look like he's poised to return to action after missing Saturday's game against the Penguins. The veteran forward has failed to record a point over his last eight games.

Erat (upper body) will not play against the Penguins on Saturday, Sarah McLellan of The Arizona Republic reports.

Erat has been dealing with an upper-body injury of late and wasn't able to take part in Friday's practice. The 33-year-old will likely be a another game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Canucks.

Erat (upper body) was absent from Friday's practice, Craig Morgan of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

The Coyotes are listing Erat as day-to-day ahead of Saturday's tilt with the Penguins. With the team canceling its gameday skate for Saturday, the odds don't seem to favor Erat playing in the contest. Justin Hodgman was recalled from AHL Portland on Friday, likely in anticipation of Erat's absence.

Erat suffered an upper-body injury in Thursday's game against the Avalanche and will not return.

Erat hasn't tallied a point recently, and suffering an injury wont do anything to help the cause. He finished Thursday's contest with one shot on net in 11:34 of ice time, and his status should be updated at some point prior to the team's next contest Saturday against the Penguins.

Erat scored the Coyotes' only goal in Saturday's loss to the Bruins.

Don't look know, but he's on a three-game point streak (one goal, two assists). And his 29 points (nine goals, 20 assists) have come in 61 games -- that's a slight step up from his abysmal 29 points in 70 games last year. His fantasy best looks pretty small in the rearview mirror at this point in his career.

Erat picked up an assist on the power play Thursday in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers. He added one shot, four hits, and two blocks in the game.

Erat has been a passable depth forward for the Coyotes this year with 28 points in 60 games. It will be interesting to see if the pending UFA has done enough to play his way onto another team at the trade deadline.
