News: Erat signed a one-year deal Thursday with Avangard of the KHL, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.
Impact: Erat made his NHL debut back in the 2001-02 campaign and has spent the last two years with the Coyotes. Last year, the 34-year-old played 79 games, accumulating 32 points (nine goals) and 48 penalty minutes. The Czech Republic native will now take his services overseas for the next season, and considering his advancing age, it's quite likely his NHL playing days are over.
