Bartkowski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Wild on Tuesday.
Bartkowski essentially spent the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, notching four goals and 19 points while posting a plus-11 rating in 70 contests. The 31-year-old blueliner is nothing more than an organizational depth option at this stage in his career and will carry zero fantasy value in 2019-20.
Bartkowski was assigned to AHL Iowa on Monday.

Bartkowski has 253 career NHL games under his belt, but he has spent the whole season in the minors, recording nine points in 28 games.

Bartkowski has only dressed for one of the past 18 games after watching Sunday's 3-2 win over the Islanders from the press box.
Bartkowski has only suited up for 14 games all season, so he's off the fantasy radar in all settings. Additionally, even if he were to draw into the lineup consistently, he hasn't proven to be a serviceable asset in the past when given a legitimate opportunity.
Bartkowski has been a healthy scratch for 18 of the past 19 games after watching Sunday's 6-1 win from the press box.
The Flames continue to slot Brett Kulak in as their sixth defenseman, and at this stage of the game, it appears that Bartkowski will likely need an injury to return to the lineup. He's obviously off the fantasy radar for the time being, but it's worth reminding that the 29-year-old blueliner probably won't make much of a splash when he does see game action again.
Bartkowski has only dressed for three of the past 11 games.
With Brett Kulak becoming a fixture on the blue line, Bartkowski has been pushed out of the lineup whenever Calgary has had a healthy defense corps dating back to late October.

Bartkowski will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's home game against the Wild, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Just a day after signing a professional tryout agreement, Bartkowski penned a deal with Calgary. With the expansion draft coming this summer, some teams are in a crunch to find players that meet the requirements for being eligible for selection. The 28-year-old will fill that gap for the Flames, which could give him the chance to showcase his abilities and earn a spot with the Golden Knights. In the meantime, the signing puts Calgary over the 23-man roster limit, so the team will need to send somebody down to the minors, with Brett Kulak the leading candidate.

Given the lack of depth on the blue line in Ottawa, Bartkowski has a very good shot of making the final 23-man squad. The defenseman shouldn't be expected to garner a lot of points, considering he tied his career high with six goals and 12 helpers last season. While his fantasy value may be relatively low, the 28-year-old would be a solid depth addition to the organization if he secures a permanent deal.
Bartkowski remains a free agent in search of a one-way deal, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Bartkowski is coming off a full season with Vancouver and has spent the last four seasons in the NHL, so a two-way deal is out of the question for the 28-year-old. It is being reported that "a ton" of teams have been in contact with his agent, therefore it seems likely a deal could be reached in the coming weeks. Wherever he lands, his fantasy owners will hope it's on a better defensive team as he finished with a minus-19 rating last season.
Bartkowski will not be re-signed by Vancouver general manager Jim Benning told reports Thursday.
Bartkowski was an ironman for the Canucks during the 2015-16 campaign as he appeared in 80 contests. Despite suiting up for almost every game, the Pittsburgh-native averaged only 18:37 in ice time per night as was appearing as an infrequent member of either special teams units. Given his limited production, a mere six goals and 12 helpers, it is not surprising that Vancouver is deciding to go a different route on defense. Yet, fantasy owners can likely expect the 28-year-old to get signed by somebody as there is a general lack of experienced blue line depth in the league right now.
Bartkowski had two assists in 19:12 of ice time in Saturday's win over the Oilers.

Fantasy owners likely don't need to concern themselves with Bartkowski's status either way, as he's tallied just 15 points (five goals, 10 assists) with a minus-15 rating over 59 games this season.
