Fish is Back
He is officially back.
Mike Fisher finally resigned with the team. The 37-year-old center inked a 1-year deal, worth $1 million. Before announcing his retirement back in the summer, Fisher had spent 7 years with the Predators.
Injuries kept Fisher from ever playing a full season with Nashville, however in three of the four seasons that Fisher played 70+ games, he tallied 42 or more points.
After being named the Predators captain before the 2016-2017 season, Fisher helped lead Nashville to its first Western Conference Championship and first ever Stanley Cup.
He finished the regular season and playoffs with a combined 18 goals and 28 assists.
He is expected to center the 4th line, however, it’s not sure exactly who he will play with yet. The bottom half of the Predators roster is crowded and is often changed around on a nightly basis.
Fisher brings a strong sense of veteran leadership to a team that is still fairly young, along with some physicality and a hint of scoring.
Nice to have the ol’ cap back
