Bitetto is expected to miss six weeks with a broken hand, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports.

Bitetto only recently returned to the big club for three games following a conditioning assignment with AHL Milwaukee, skating modest minutes and picking up an assist to go with six hits. The Predators' depth at defense will be stretched a little thinner during the 26-year-old blueliner's absence, but Bitetto has only tallied seven points in 32 games over the last two seasons with Nashville, so this news has little impact in the fantasy realm.
