Martin Erat netted his third goal of the season in the Coyotes' 7-3 loss to Tampa Bay Tuesday night.

Martin Erat scored a goal in Arizona's 4-3 shootout loss Tuesday night.

Erat now has two goals and four points in five games this season. He's bouncing back nicely as a challenging 2013-14 campaign, but we don't think he'll end up with much more than 40 points.

Martin Erat is happy that last season's horrible result is behind him.

After being an established 20 goal scorer in the NHL, the puck would not go in for Erat last season he managed to find the back of the net only three times in 70 games. But he is more comfortable this season and already has his first goal of the season after only three games. "He's a player in the past when he's had the puck, he can make good plays, hold the puck, make other players around him better with his skill," coach Dave Tippett said. "I still think he has opportunities to shoot more. I'd like to see him shoot more and put more pucks on the net and shoot to score more, but he has some attributes our lineup could certainly use." Erat is playing alongside Martin Hanzal and Rob Klinkhammer and should get to the 40 point mark this season.

Martin Erat scored once and added an assist in the Coyotes’ 7-4 win over Edmonton on Wednesday.

Erat was one of four Arizona players to record multiple point nights in the high scoring affair with the Oilers. Martin Hanzel and Shane Doan each added two assists while Mikkel Boedker tallied four points. It was Erat’s first goal of the season and the game was a nice way to get the Coyotes offense feeling good about themselves early this season.

Martin Erat could start the season on the third line.

Erat has seen plenty of time in his NHL career as a top-six forward and that could be his role with the Coyotes but his two-way play could put him on the third unit. "The reason we acquired Marty is because his style of skill can fit into how we have to play, and that's a hard compete," GM Don Maloney said. "He's proven to be a productive offensive player in the past." He had only three goals and 29 points last season in 70 games but should get back to the 40 point mark if healthy.
