Rangers' Anthony Bitetto: Signs with Blueshirts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Rangers on Friday.

Bitetto played 51 games with the Jets last season and posted eight assists, 54 shots on net and 145 hits. He could add depth on the Rangers' blue line next season, but he'll likely stick to the bottom pairing when he gets in the lineup, as veteran blueliner Jack Johnson also signed with the team Friday.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: On ice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto (upper body) joined the Jets' secondary group at Thursday's camp session, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

Bitetto played in just four of the team's last 13 contests before the league went on hiatus, so his inclusion in the postseason lineup seems unlikely, at best. The defenseman would likely need multiple injuries to pop up in order to see any minutes for Winnipeg during the playoffs.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Out with upper-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto sustained an upper-body injury and will miss Monday's matchup with Arizona, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports.

Bitetto was a healthy scratch for the Jets' previous two outings, so his injury is unlikely to affect the majority of fantasy owners. With the New York native on the shelf, the Jets may need to promote a player from the minors in order to provide some blue-line depth.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Helpers in consecutive outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto registered an assist and four hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

Bitetto has assists in consecutive games -- he's been a regular in the lineup since Josh Morrissey (upper body) got injured. The New York native has managed a career-high eight points (all assists), as well as 145 hits, 50 blocked shots and 32 PIM in 51 contests.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Scratched again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto was a healthy scratch against Chicago on Sunday.

Bitetto watched from the press box for the second straight game. With Nathan Beaulieu and Luca Sbisa healthy, Bitetto is unlikely to rejoin the lineup any time soon. In 47 appearances for the Jets, Bitetto has registered six helpers, 48 shots and 133 hits while averaging 15:15 of ice time.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Earns rare assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto produced an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Bitetto set up Kyle Connor's first-period tally. The assist snapped a 14-game point drought for the defenseman. He's played a career-high 41 games this season, with five assists, 116 hits, 40 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating. He's never had more than seven points in a season, so the 29-year-old has almost no fantasy value outside of his physicality.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Dishes out four hits Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto recorded four hits while logging 13:00 of ice time versus the Blues on Sunday.

Bitetto failed to put a shot on goal for his third straight game, which certainly isn't going to help his chances of securing his first goal of the 2019-20 campaign. If the blueliner continues to underwhelm, he could see his spot in the lineup go to Carl Dahlstrom or even a called up player from the minors.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Sets up eventual game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto registered an assist, five hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.

Bitetto got the puck to David Gustafsson late in the first period, and the rookie forward did the rest by scoring on an end-to-end rush. It's just the second assist of the season for Bitetto, who has added 47 hits in 15 appearances. He's never exceeded seven points or 36 games played in a single campaign.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Watching from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto served as a healthy scratch against Dallas on Sunday, his second straight game in the press box.

With the Jets fielding a full complement of blueliners, aside from Dustin Byfuglien (ankle), Bitetto appears to be the odd man out in favor of Tucker Poolman and Luca Sbisa. Even if another injury pops up, Bitetto will have to beat out Carl Dahlstrom for a spot in the lineup.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto (lower body) had one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating while skating 13:18 in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

Bitetto missed a pair of games with the lower-body injury. He will likely see third-pairing minutes at best now that he's healthy, so it's unlikely he'll make a splash in fantasy.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Suiting up Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto (lower body) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Kings, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

Bitetto will take the place of the injured Tucker Poolman (undisclosed) after a two-game stint on the shelf. In his previous eight outings, the 29-year-old Bitetto recorded one helper, 14 shots and 24 hits. The blueliner's offensive upside is limited, which makes him a low-end fantasy play even in the deepest of formats.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Removed from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto (lower body) is no longer on injured reserve, per the NHL's media site.

Bitetto appears to be close to returning to game action, an interesting development considering the defenseman was placed on IR just a few days ago, back on Oct. 19. Once Bitetto is deemed healthy enough to play, it remains to be seen who he will bump out of Winnipeg's lineup. The 29-year-old has appeared in eight games this season, collecting an assist for his efforts.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Bitetto (lower body) on injured reserve Saturday, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports.

Although Bitetto's now on IR, he's still considered day-to-day with his lower-body issue, so he could be ready to rejoin the lineup sooner rather than later. Another update on the veteran blueliner's status should surface once he's cleared for game action.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Not expected to dress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's game against the Islanders,'s Darrin Bauming reports.

Bitetto suffered a lower-body injury midway through Tuesday's loss to Arizona and will miss at least one contest as a result. The 29-year-old blueliner is considered day-to-day, so he could be ready to rejoin the lineup as soon as Sunday against Edmonton.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Labeled day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pual Maurice indicated Tuesday that Bitetto (lower body) is considered day-to-day, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports.

Bitetto departed Tuesday's game prematurely, logging only 9:05 of ice time prior to suffering an injury. He did rack up two shots on goal, but the blueliner's status for Thursday's game is certainly in doubt at this juncture. Confirmation of his status should arrive prior to puck drop.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Exits with lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto suffered a lower-body injury and won't return to Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

Bitetto wasn't present on the bench following the first intermission, and he's officially been ruled out for the game. It hasn't been reported yet how Bitetto suffered this injury, but his next chance to return will be Thursday against the Islanders.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Records helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto picked up an assist and dished out three hits in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.

Bitetto supplied the secondary helper on Patrik Laine's lone tally for the Jets. The 29-year-old defenseman has never topped seven points or 36 games in a single season, so he's well off the radar for fantasy owners.

Jets' Anthony Bitetto: Signs one-year contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bitetto penned a one-year, two-way deal with Winnipeg on Tuesday that will pay him $700,000 at the NHL level.

Stuck behind a logjam of defensemen when he was with Nashville, Bitetto saw an uptick in playing time after making the move to Minnesota at the deadline. The 28-year-old will certainly be in the mix for a spot on the 23-man roster during training camp, but may be hard pressed to beat out Dmitry Kulikov or Sami Niku and may have to spend some time in the minors.

Wild's Anthony Bitetto: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
