  • 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.

    Predators' Anthony Bitetto: Seeing little ice time this season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/18) Bitetto was back in the lineup Tuesday, skating 12:18 against the Blackhawks after sitting out the previous three games as a healthy scratch.

    Bitetto continues to platoon with Matt Irwin for a spot on the Preds' third defensive pairing opposite Yannick Weber. Unfortunately, with P.K. Subban's return from an upper-body injury looming on the horizon, there will be even less ice time to go around and Bitetto may be looking at a full-time spot on the bench. Needless to say, with just three assists in 14 games this season, Bitetto should not be on anyone's fantasy roster.

    Predators' Anthony Bitetto: Watching from press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/2/18) Bitetto sat out Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks -- the fourth consecutive game he has served as a healthy scratch.

    Bitetto is essentially the team's seventh defenseman, having notched just three assists in 11 games this season. For the foreseeable future, he will continue to battle Matt Irwin for a spot on the Preds' third defensive pairing alongside Yannick Weber.

    Predators' Anthony Bitetto: Still not seeing regular minutes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/18) Bitetto skated 10:33 in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Kings, recording one shot on goal, a hit and a blocked shot.

    This was just Bitetto's eighth time in the lineup this season, as he typically watches from the press box most nights as a healthy scratch. He continues to battle Matt Irwin for a spot on the Preds' third defensive pairing, giving him little to no fantasy value in most formats.
