Playing career

Erskine was drafted 39th overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars. Erskine began his upper-level hockey play with the Quinte Hawks in the 1996–97 season. For the 1997–98, 1998–99, and 1999–2000 seasons, Erskine played for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. Erskine won the Max Kaminsky Trophy as top defenceman in the OHL in 1999–2000. He showed marked improvement from season to season until his promotion to the Utah Grizzlies of the International Hockey League in 2000.

Erskine's NHL debut came during the 2001–02 NHL season with Dallas, where he played 33 games, notching a single assist.

During the 2005–06 NHL season, Dallas traded Erskine to the New York Islanders for Finnish defenceman Janne Niinimaa.[1] At the conclusion of the season, the Islanders did not re-sign Erskine, leaving him a free agent. On September 14, 2006, Erskine signed with the Washington Capitals.[2] Following the end of the season he extended his stay with the Capitals for a further two years.[3]
