CareerEdit

Patera has played in several countries. He started his career in his native country playing for HC Kladno in 1990. He stayed with Kladno until 1996 when he and his two linemates in Kladno and in the Czech national team, Martin Procházka and Otakar Vejvoda moved to Sweden to join the Elitserien team AIK for the 1996–1997 season. Procházka left AIK for Toronto Maple Leafs during the summer of 1997 and Vejvoda was forced to retire due to an injury early in the 1997/98 season. Patera left AIK in 1998 too, moved back home to the Czech Republic and signed with HC Vsetín.

After only one season with HC Vsetín Patera signed with the Dallas Stars. However, he played only 12 games with the Stars before he moved back to the Czech Republic and HC Vsetín. The following 2000/01 season he signed with NHL team Minnesota Wild, but after only playing 20 games with the Wild and spending the rest of the season in the IHL, Patera decided to return to Europe. He played with HC Kladno for a very short time (three games in the beginning of the 2001/02 season), before signing with Russian team Avangard Omsk, where he spend that season and the two following.

In the summer of 2004 he signed again with HC Kladno, but this time he stayed with the club. And with the exception of a three-month loan to Swedish Elitserien club Färjestads BK in the spring of 2006, he has stayed with Kladno (as of March 25, 2007).
