      Predators' Mike Fisher: Held off scoresheet Saturday vs. Jets

      Fisher failed to register a point for the fourth consecutive game during Saturday's 7-0 demolition of the Jets. It was yet another disappointing night for fantasy owners, as 11 other Predators recorded at least a point on this night, yet Fisher failed to show up for the party. With just four points in 16 games, Fisher is proving he may not have what it takes to center the Preds' top line between James Neal and Filip Forsberg. That said, coaches don't usually shuffle their lines in the wake of 7-0 wins, but don't be surprised if it happens eventually, with Fisher getting demoted to a lower line. At this point, feel free to bench him in favour of a more viable fantasy option.

      Predators' Mike Fisher: Bumped to top line

      Fisher registered just his third point of the season - an assist - during Saturday's 5-4 OT loss to the Kings, skating on the Preds' top line with Filip Forsberg and James Neal. Fisher, who was previously centering the second line, has seen an uptick in his ice time over the past few games - he saw a season-high 23:04 versus the Kings - since taking over for Mike Ribeiro on the top line. Hopefully the move will be enough to get him going and allow him to put a few more points on the board. Keep him in your active lineup and monitor closely.

      Predators' Mike Fisher: Off to a slow start

      Fisher has been held off the scoresheet through his first three games this season, and has just a single shot on goal. A bit of a slow start for Fisher, who missed the first two months of last season with a ruptured Achilles, but returned to score 39 points in 59 games. At 39 years old, Fisher is certainly nearing the end of his NHL career, but he should still have enough left in the tank to put up 40+ points this season, assuming he can stay healthy. For now, he continues to anchor the Preds' second line in between Craig Smith and Colin Wilson.

    • Fisher Inks Two-Year Contract With Predators

      News: Mike Fisher signed a two-year, $8.8 million contract with the Predators on Friday, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
      Analysis: The 35-year-old veteran will now get a chance to spend what could be the last few seasons of his NHL career in his long-time home of Nashville. Despite his age, Mike Fisher has continued to produce at a high level for the Predators, notching 39 points in 59 games with Nashville last season. Fantasy owners can expect similar numbers from Fisher in 2015-16, although it's possible his point production may take a slight dip due to age alone.
