It was just the third career fight for the Preds defenceman, who left the game and did not return.
Anthony Bitetto left Friday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks after suffering a head laceration.
The Nashville Predators defenceman was fighting Chicago Blackhawks tough guy Jordin Tootoo when he fell to the ice and hit his head. The 26-year-old, who was in just his third career NHL fight, required assistance leaving the ice.
Anthony Bitetto has an upper-body injury and is unlikely to return to tonight's game.
