  • Mike Fisher: Announces retirment

    Fisher announced his retirement from the NHL on Saturday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Fisher came out of retirement and joined Nashville in February in hopes of helping the Predators win their first Stanley Cup, but ultimately fell short, losing to the Jets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semi-finals. The 1998 second-round pick will hang up his skates having racked up 278 goals and 589 points during his fantastic NHL career which spanned 18 seasons.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Finishes campaign injured

    Fisher (undisclosed) recorded one point (a goal) in the 2018 playoffs.

    Fisher was unfit to play in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, and the Predators ended up losing the series to the Jets, so now there are questions as to whether he'll return for at least one more season. The 37-year-old came out of retirement and joined Nashville for a March 2 regular-season contest in Vancouver, with Fisher making an immediate impact by scoring once on three shot attempts. Of course, if the Canadian is up for more NHL hockey, his agent will have to negotiate a new contract on his behalf since he's a pending unrestricted free agent.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Unfit to play in Game 7

    Fisher's injury concerns his lower body and he'll miss Game 7 against the Jets on Thursday.

    Fisher is officially day-to-day, and it appears that Nick Bonino and Calle Jarnkrork will round out the bottom-six center spots without him.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Status remains unclear

    Predators coach Peter Laviolette didn't have any new information on Fisher (undisclosed) as of Wednesday, the eve of Game 7 against the Jets, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    It's not all that surprising that the Preds aren't disclosing information on Fisher since the club is notorious for not tipping its hand regarding player injuries, especially during the playoffs. The 37-year-old, who came out of retirement in an effort to help Nashville in these playoffs, has just one goal representing his point total through 12 postseason contests, though he is a physical presence (30 hits) who used to captain the Predators and that shouldn't be overlooked as they look to squeak past the Jets in Game 7 on Thursday.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Leaves Game 6 with injury

    Fisher only played 2:58 of Monday's Game 6 against the Jets before exiting with an undisclosed injury.

    What happened is unclear, as it was a surprise when Fisher didn't return to the bench for the start of the second period. If he can't play in Game 7, the Predators may not miss him. The fourth-line center has only one point this postseason.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Watches from press box Saturday, could play Sunday

    Fisher was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Wild.

    After coming out of retirement at the beginning of March to help the Predators down the stretch, the team continues to break Fisher in slowly by not playing him in back-to-back game situations. The 37-year-old veteran will get a chance to suit up Sunday when the Preds take on the Jets.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Will suit up at home Tuesday

    Fisher, who came out of retirement to rejoin the Predators, is set for a homecoming appearance at Bridgestone Arena against the Stars on Tuesday.

    Fisher made a triumphant return to game ice Friday, notching a goal on three shots over 10:45 of ice time in an overtime win over the Canucks. The 37-year-old spent eight years in Nashville before signing a one-year, $1 million deal for this reunion tour, accumulating 348 points (167 goals, 181 assists) through 675 games. A leader with two-way acumen, Fisher should be an X-factor of sorts as the Preds look to make another strong run at the Stanley Cup.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Will debut Friday

    Fisher will make his season debut for the Predators on Friday against the Canucks, The Tennesseean reports.

    Fisher needed some time to get up to speed after officially signing with the club Feb. 26. Having sat out the last two games since procuring the latest contract, he's expected to slot in on the fourth line and have his ice time limited early on. Even when he's full-go, the 37-year-old will likely continue slotting in among the bottom six.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Officially signs

    Fisher, as expected, finalized the details of his one-year, $1 million contract with Nashville on Monday.

    By signing Monday, Fisher will be eligible to play for the Predators throughout the postseason. When the center will first take the ice for the club remains to be seen, but fantasy owners in need of a late-season addition may want to consider giving him a look. With Nashville departing on a four-game road trip, it seems likely the veteran will suit up at some point during this stretch.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Expected to sign deal Monday

    Fisher is expected to sign a one-year, $1 million contract with the Predators on Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Fisher spent the last six-plus seasons with Nashville before temporarily retiring last offseason. With the Predators trading Pontus Aberg to Edmonton on Sunday, the 37-year-old center should have a bottom-six role moving forward. He could be worth a look in deep fantasy leagues but not much beyond that.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Shooting for March 1 return

    Fisher expects to return to the Predators lineup Mar. 1 against the Oilers, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    Fisher started practicing Monday and must sign with the team by Feb. 26 in order to be eligible to prop up the Preds' playoff push. The 37-year-old pivot excelled with 18 goals and 42 points -- 17 on the power play -- in 72 games last campaign, dishing out 160 hits in that span as well. Nashville's top six is already oozing with talent, especially with the acquisition of center Kyle Turris from the Senators, so it'll be interesting to see how the former captain is deployed.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Practices for first time this season

    Fisher was a full participant during the 45-minute morning practice Monday, his first time practicing with the team since announcing his intent to return.

    Fisher said following the session that "I just need to keep taking time and get some good practices in. Ten days isn't a lot when you haven't skated in a while, but I'm definitely happy the way I'm feeling at this point, probably better than I expected." This was a key step for the 37-year-old as he tries to get game ready, but there's not a timetable set at the moment for Fisher's return, and he certainly won't be rushed back with Nashville currently leading the Central Division.

  • Predators' Mike Fisher: Coming out of retirement

    Fisher will rejoin the Predators on a one-year deal for the remainder of the season, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports.

    Fisher will be back with Nashville after retiring following the 2016-17 campaign. The center racked up 18 goals and 24 assists last year and was a major piece of the Predators' run to the Stanley Cup Finals. The veteran figures to slot into a bottom-six role and will likely bump Colton Sissons from the lineup.
