Bartley was a healthy scratch for the ninth straight game Tuesday against the Canadiens.

Since the return of Ryan Ellis from a lower-body injury earlier this month, Bartley has not been able to secure himself a spot in the lineup. He's currently the No. 7 defenseman on the Preds' depth chart right now, and doesn't figure to see any game action anytime soon. Needless to say, he should not be in anyone's fantasy lineup for the time being.

Bartley saw ice time of just 9:40 during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Devils, but assisted on Mike Fisher's second-period goal for his 10th point of the season.

While it's good to see Bartley crack the scoresheet, his stock has really fallen since Cody Franson was re-acquired from Toronto via trade last last month. Previously, Bartley had been averaging 13-14 minutes per game, however in the last three contests his ice time has been less than 10 minutes per night, including just 4:49 against the Rangers on March 2. With Franson back in the fold, Bartley is now occupying a spot on the Preds' third defensive pairing alongside Seth Jones, making him irrelevant in all but the deepest fantasy formats.

Bartley is expected to be a healthy scratch Thursday against Minnesota, the Tennessean reports.

Although no formal announcement has been made thus far, Bartley was on the ice for an extended period following the morning skate - typically an indication of a player's planned absence from the lineup later that day. If Bartley doesn't dress, expect Ryan Ellis to rejoin the lineup after missing the previous 21 games with a lower-body injury.

Bartley was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over the Sabres.

With the Preds' having re-acquired Cody Franson from Toronto via trade last week, Bartley - who has just nine assists in 31 games this season - will now be competing for the Preds' sixth blue line spot with rookie Anthony Bitetto. Furthermore, once Ryan Ellis and Anton Volchenkov return from their respective lower-body injuries, Bartley could wind up watching even more games from the press box. Accordingly, he does not make for a great fantasy recommendation at this time.
