Bitetto (upper body) will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks and is listed on injured reserve, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

Bitetto record five PIM and was minus-1 in his only appearance this season, but was injured in the fight that led to his five minutes in the sin bin. The 26-year-old has recorded just six career NHL points, so fantasy owners will likely want to pursue other blue line options once Bitetto is cleared to return.
