He was forced to miss a total of 33 games because of two separate long-term injuries. "It's more frustrating that I had a good training camp," Bitetto said. "I made the team. I felt like I put myself in a position where I was going to help the team. Then you go out on opening night. ... It was a lot of emotions at first." He is getting more comfortable now and is seeing more ice time than he would usually get because of injuries to P.K. Subban and Roman Josi.

Anthony Bitetto registered a pair of assists in Nashville's 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers.

The two organizations played a pair of split-squad exhibition games tonight. The Panthers won the first game 4-1 and the Preds came out on top in the second contest. Bitetto assisted on goals by Miikka Salomaki and Pontus Aberg. Bitetto played a team-high 23:05 in this one and he finished with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal. Bitetto spent a good chunk of time with the Predators last season, but he mostly served as a healthy scratch in 2015-16. He had a nice night at the office, but it's important to remember it's still early in the preseason.
