Phoenix Coyotes trade for Martin Erat from Capitals
The Phoenix Coyotes have traded for left winger Martin Erat from the Washington Capitals.
In addition to Erat, the Coyotes will also receive F John Mitchell. The Capitals receive defenseman Rostislav Klesla, forward Chris Brown, and a 2015 4th-round pick.
The addition of Erat will give the Coyotes an all-Czech line, with Erat, Martin Hanzal, and Radim Vrbata. Erat has struggled to score in Washington, having only one goal (an empty netter), but he does have 23 assists.
