Mike Fisher Ending Retirement, Returning to Nashville Predators

Mike Fisher Ending Retirement, Returning to Nashville Predators

The Nashville Predators got a huge boost on Wednesday, as former captain Mike Fisher is set to come out of retirement and rejoin a team that fell two games short of winning the Stanley Cup past year.

Expected to sign a contract around the February 28 NHL Trade Deadline, Fisher acts as an addition that won't cost any assets to acquire; a good situation for the Predators and a good opportunity for Fisher to win the Stanley Cup. He practiced in full Predators gear on Wednesday morning at Bridgestone Arena. "It's great to be back". His decision to return came about recently, he said.

"It always kind of bugged me when guys came out of retirement". "I think that's the thing". We have no timetable for his return, we're going to be patient, we're going to see where he's ready to go and we're just going to manage this between Lavi and me and Mike and all this is really for getting ready for the playoffs... this is a huge day. How good this team is. "But we didn't win previous year, and it was the best time in my career and we didn't win".

He's also husband to country star Carrie Underwood, and they have a son together. "But to be honest, [my wife] Carrie [Underwood] was, she kept asking me nearly every day what I was going to do and she wanted me to do it". "Carrie asked me everyday what I was going to do and she was excited for me to come back". He's the fifth-leading goal-scorer in Predators history with 109.

According to Bob McKenzie, Fisher will be returning to the Predators on a one-year deal that will finish out the rest of the season. Because while he's experienced and will likely throw his body in front of any and all oncoming shots, Fisher was the arguably the worst penalty-killing forward in Nashville last season. He's been playing under Lavi (coach Peter Laviolette) for a few years, knows our system. Laviolette said the team leaders are excited for Fisher's return.

Fisher said he has worked out "a little bit" in retirement, but that it will take some time to get into game shape.

Fisher has 276 goals and 309 assists in 1,088 regular-season games over 17 seasons with the Ottawa Senators and Predators.
