Mike Fisher (2010-2018)
Mike Fisher is the only Predators player on the list that wasn’t drafted by the team. He was drafted in the second round (44th overall) in the 1998 NHL Draft by the Ottawa Senators. He played 11 seasons with the franchise before being traded to the Nashville Predators. On February 10, 2011, the Predators traded their first round-pick (Stefan Noesen) and a conditional pick in 2012 (Jarrod Maidens) in exchange for Fisher. It was a match made in heaven for both parties.
His wife (Carrie Underwood) is one of the biggest country music stars in the world who was living in the area, and the Predators just so happened to also needed a center. Fisher brought leadership and skill immediately to the team. Even though Shea Weber was the captain, Fisher was an alternate captain before being named the sixth captain in franchise history in 2016.
In his eight-year career with the Predators, he totaled 241 points(111 goals, 130 assists) in 429 games with the organization. Fisher was a fan favorite on and off the ice. played a big role in the community. He was awarded the NHL Foundation Player Award in the 2011-2012 season for his commitment, perseverance and commitment for enriching the lives people in his community. Like Legwand, Fisher’s case is also debatable, but the next two should have it retired.
