  • Wild's Anthony Bitetto: Struggles continue

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/19) Bitetto was a minus-3 but had three blocks in 13:07 of ice time in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Bitetto dressed for a second straight game after being scratched in four of six and didn't perform well. The 28-year-old had careless giveaways and turnovers that directly translated to goals against. Bitetto has just three points in 34 contests this campaign, and head coach Bruce Boudreau seems to prefer Nick Seeler over him. The New York native shouldn't be anywhere near a fantasy lineup for the rest of the season.

    Wild's Anthony Bitetto: Non-existent versus former club

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/19) Bitetto had two blocks in 11:05 of ice time in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.

    Bitetto didn't have the game he'd hoped for against his former team, giving up multiple odd-man chances against due to bad turnovers and positioning. The 28-year-old hasn't produced a point in 12 games since he was claimed off waivers by Minnesota on Jan. 28. With Bitetto struggling, don't be surprised if the team deploys Nick Seeler as its sixth defenseman for the foreseeable future.

    Wild's Anthony Bitetto: Pointless after waiver claim

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/19) Bitetto has no points and is a minus-3 since he was claimed off waivers by Minnesota on Jan. 25.

    The 28-year-old has never been a scoring threat and was brought in to add depth in the absence of Mathew Dumba (pectoral). The Wild still seem to value the defenseman, as evidenced by his 14:38 of average ice time. Don't count on Bitetto to provide fantasy value any time soon.

    Wild's Anthony Bitetto: Claimed off waivers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/19) Bitetto was snatched off the waiver wire by Minnesota from Nashville on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    At a mere $650,000 cap hit, combined with 114 games of NHL experience, it would have been a shocker to see Bitetto make it through unclaimed, which is likely why the Preds carried eight defensemen this long into the season. The blueliner could slot into the lineup right away after the All-Star break, though the eventual return of Mathew Dumba (pectoral) could see him back up in the press box.

    Predators' Anthony Bitetto: Lands on waivers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/19) Bitetto was designated for waivers Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Bitetto has served as a healthy scratch for 10 consecutive outings and has been limited to 18 appearances this season. Even when the blueliner is in the lineup, he is averaging a mere 10:40 of ice time. Considering the 28-year-old carries a cap hit of just $650,000 and will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, it wouldn't be a shock to see a team claim him in order to see how he might fit into its lineup for the rest of the campaign. If he does clear, Bitetto will likely be reassigned to AHL Milwaukee in order to make room for Kyle Turris (lower body) or Miikka Salomaki (upper body) to be activated off injured reserve.
