C Fisher agrees to 2-year extension with Predators

  •  

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Mike Fisher thinks Nashville is a perfect situation for him, and the Predators apparently feel the same way about the 32-year-old center.

General manager David Poile announced an $8.4 million, two-year contract extension with Fisher at a fan event Monday night. Fisher was already under contract for the upcoming season with a $3 million salary and a salary-cap hit of $4.2 million.

Nashville acquired Fisher in a trade with Ottawa in February 2011, and he had 24 goals and 51 points in his first full season with the Predators. Fisher centered the team's top offensive line for much of the year.

"Obviously I love being here," said Fisher, who was one of Nashville's alternate captains last season. "It has been a great year and a half for me. I love everything about the city. It is just a perfect situation."

Fisher is married to country music singer Carrie Underwood, and the couple's primary home is in the Nashville area.

"Family and lifestyle are obviously most important," he said.

Fisher has 196 goals and 215 assists in 774 career NHL games.
