    Predators' Mike Fisher: Struggling on third line

    Fisher broke a seven-game pointless drought with an assist in Saturday's 3-0 shutout win over Minnesota. Fisher has really been struggling to generate offense since missing most of December due to a lower-body injury. To compound matters, ever since the Preds went and traded for Ryan Johansen earlier this month, Fisher has been bumped to the third line and has seen his ice time drop to the 14-16 minute mark, well below the 18 minutes per night he was averaging previously. All things considered, going forward we expect Fisher's point production will continue to be inconsistent at best.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Returns from lower-body injury

    As expected, Fisher returned to the lineup Monday against the Rangers following an 11-game absence due to a lower-body injury. "I felt pretty good," Fisher said after his first game in nearly four weeks. "A little bit of time to get kind of legs and wind underneath me a little bit, but for the most part felt OK. I thought that was a solid effort." Fisher did not factor into any of Nashville's five goals on the night, but saw 16:47 in ice time (including 1:34 on the power play), had one shot on goal, dished out three hits and won 10 of 17 faceoffs. He spent most of the game centering the Preds' second line between Colin Wilson and Viktor Arvidsson. Feel free to get him back in your fantasy lineups if you haven't done so already.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Will return Monday

    Fisher (lower body) indicated that he will return to the lineup Monday against the Rangers. Fisher has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since Dec. 1, but will finally return to action Monday after indicating that would likely be the case. It's unclear exactly where the veteran will slot in to the lines and who he will replace in the lineup, but that should be cleared up when the team takes the ice for warm-ups, if not before then.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Hoping to return Monday

    Fisher (lower body) is hopeful to return for Monday's contest with the Rangers. Fisher has missed the Predators' last 11 games, and would be a huge addition to the lineup if he is able to return Monday. The 35-year old is no longer a 20-goal scorer, but he still plays big minutes (18:44 per game) for Nashville.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Remains out Saturday

    Fisher (lower body) will not play Saturday night versus the Red Wings, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Unfortunately, Fisher will require more time to heal from his lower-body ailment, despite the Christmas break that afforded the Preds four days between games. The will be the 11th game missed by Fisher, with Monday's home tilt with the Rangers being Fisher's next shot to hit game ice.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Won't play Monday

    Fisher (lower body) took part in morning skate again Monday, but will not play Monday against the Candiens. Fisher remains on injured reserve due to a lower-body issue, but Monday marked the second straight practice he participated in. The 35-year-old forward appears to be nearing a return, and with a break ahead for the club, it wouldn't be surprising if he rejoins the lineup Saturday against the Red Wings.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Shows up for morning skate Saturday

    Fisher (lower body) was on the ice for the Saturday morning skate, Ryan Porth of ESPN Nashville reports. This is an encouraging development if you're fishing for the fiery center to return to game ice sooner than later. While Fisher is no lock to play Saturday night versus the Wild, it appears that he is drawing close to a return after missing the past eight contests.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Will miss next three games

    Fisher (lower body) won't play this week, which means he will at least miss the Predators' next three games, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Fisher has resumed skating, but still hasn't returned to practice, and won't be available for the Predator's next three contests at the very least. The veteran forward could potentially draw back into Nashville's lineup Monday against Montreal, but will likely need to log several practices prior to that game for that to be a possibility. The 35-year-old forward is on injured reserve, meaning the Predators should announce his activation once he is fit to play.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Unlikely to play Saturday

    Fisher (lower body) did not participate in the morning skate ahead of Saturday's match with the Avalanche. This all but rules out Fisher for Saturday's home tilt. Already, the centerman has missed five games with the ailment and likely needs to get in more practices to prove his health before the team will feel comfortable putting the 35-year-old back in the lineup.

    Predators' Mike Fisher: Not a participant in Thursday morning skate

    Fisher (lower body) was absent from the morning skate Thursday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Fisher's inability to participate in the morning skate jeopardizes his chances of suiting up for a home contest against the Blackhawks on Thursday night. With the center missing the past four games, the Predators haven't been shy about giving Calle Jarnkrok top-six minutes, so he's someone to keep an eye on if you need a replacement for Fisher and prefer to stick with the Preds.
