The grizzled veteran seems like a good place to start looking. Already an alternate captain for the Preds, Fisher tallied his 1,000th NHL game this past season and is well equipped with experience under his belt. When looking for a captain, experience is certainly something to take into heavy consideration.
Fisher had a down year as far as his stats go registering only 23 total points and ending with a -14 (the lowest on the team). As he continues to get older you might expect this but he can still produce when the team needs it. Who can forget his triple-overtime winner against the Sharks in the playoffs?
With Fisher’s clock continuing to tick, the time for retirement could be inching closer. Whether or not the Preds will want to give him the captaincy to have him retire in the near future remains to be seen.
