The Nashville Predators will be getting a pleasant surprise addition to their lineup as former team captain Mike Fisher is coming come out of retirement to hit the ice once again.
Currently, there is no timetable for when Fisher will make his official return, but but he will officially sign a deal for the remainder of the season ahead of the NHL trade deadline.
Fisher retired after helping the Predators reach the Stanley Cup Final, scoring 18 goals and 24 assists in 72 games throughout the regular season.
However, Fisher only mustered four assists in 20 playoff games.
His return could help put Nashville over the top in their quest to return to the Stanley Cup Final.
“I believe this year can be our year and that’s what I want to be a part of and have some fun” Fisher said, via Brooks Bratten of the Predators website.
