The Nashville Predators have assigned defenseman Anthony Bitetto to the Milwaukee Admirals on conditioning assignment. In addition, the Admirals have recalled forward Anthony Richard from the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL.
Per the rules of a conditioning assignment Bitetto’s stint with the Admirals can last no longer than two weeks (14 consecutive days). Bitetto served a conditioning assignment last season and played 6 games during that time. In accordance to that rule this stint should at maximum take him through 5 games beginning today in Clevand ending with the Admirals second pass through Cleveland on December 2nd. With Petter Granberg taking Bitetto’s more familiar #2 the New Yorker will play in the newly vacated by Justin Kirkland #24.
The other move today comes with the in-state rodeo for Richard who was reassigned yesterday from the Admirals, who are in Cleveland, to their ECHL affiliate in Cincinnati. Richard made his ECHL debut last night and recorded a goal followed by an assist. Those were firsts in his professional playing career and he has immediately been recalled. Should he play tonight it would be a three-in-three set of games for the first-year pro.
