Sollenberger Trophy as the AHL's Top Scorer in 1999 while leading his team to the Calder Cup Final, only to fall short against the Providence Bruins.

In 99-2000, Pittis returned to Rochester and for a second consecutive season led his team in scoring while leading them to the 2000 Calder Cup Final, only to fall short once again this time to the Hartford Wolf Pack. While he spent the better part of the season with the Americans, Pittis played in seven games with the Sabres scoring his first NHL goal.

After two successful seasons in the AHL with Rochester, Pittis joined the Edmonton Oilers in 2000-01 and has spent the past two seasons in and out the of the Oilers line-up before being acquired by the Nashville Predators in the summer of 2002.
