RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

There was no outlook written for Byron Bitz.

2012-13

Bitz spent another season bouncing between the AHL and NHL in 2011-12, making just 10 appearances for the Canucks by seasonís end. He finished with four points (1 G, 3 A) while giving Vancouver extra forward depth. The 28-year old grinder is currently a free agent. No matter where he signs, Bitz will likely be on a two-way deal and spend time in both the minors and majors again in 2012-13.

2011-12

Bitz missed the entire 2010-11 season after suffering a sport hernia in training camp. The Canucks still decided to take a chance on the 27-year-old by inking him to a two-way deal this summer. He could provide the Canucks with a much-needed physical presence with his large frame (6-foot-5, 215 pounds), but Bitz doesn't offer the necessary point production to make much of a fantasy impact.

2010-11

Injuries are always a concern for Bitz, who came to Florida from Boston deep into last season. But when healthy, he effectively uses his 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame to use advantage, allowing him to deliver hits and control the puck. Those intangibles are great for the Panthers but nothing fantasy owners will get excited about.

2009-10

Bitz, who initially looked like a short-term callup, surprised with his solid play last season, scoring four goals and three assists in 35 games. He will never be a big scorer, but his ability to protect the puck along with his strength along the boards is valued by the team. A modest boost in offensive production this coming season is a realistic expectation.
