The Nashville Predators have selected Anthony Bitetto of the Indiana Ice of the USHL with their sixth round pick, their fourth choice and the 168th player taken in this years draft.

Choosing Bitetto gives Nashville two forwards and two defensemen in this years draft class so far.

Bitetto amassed an impressive 40 points from the blueline in 58 games last season with the Ice, as well as four points in the post season. His 40 points were good enough for fourth and his 29 assists were good enough for third among all defensemen in the USHL. He was also a plus-11.
