Mike Fisher Ending Retirement, Returning to Nashville Predators

Mike Fisher Ending Retirement, Returning to Nashville Predators

When then-Predators captain Mike Fisher announced his retirement in August 2017, he explained that the decision was made all the more hard knowing that Nashville had come so painfully close bringing home the Stanley Cup.

"Mike Fisher is ending his retirement and will play for the #Preds this season", they wrote, quoting lyrics from Carrie Underwood, who also happens to be Fisher's wife.

Poile believes Fisher has some unfinished business and wants to help the Predators win two more games than they did a year ago when they lost the Stanley Cup Final in six games to Pittsburgh.

Fisher, who has 23 goals and 51 points in 134 National Hockey League playoff games, will try to help the Predators to a fourth consecutive post-season berth. "I'm going to see just how I feel, skate on my own for a bit and get in shape".

In game two, 56 percent of public bets are placed on the Metropolitan Division All-Stars to defeat the Atlantic Division . The Metropolitan Division team faces the Atlantic Division in the other semifinal that starts at approximately 1:30 p.m.

The 37-year-old has undoubtedly been paying attention to the success the Preds are having this season after last June's run, and the desire still remains. Not from Fisher himself, not from coach Peter Laviolette and certainly not from Poile, who didn't question for a second whether or not the comeback bid would work.

"Captain @mfisher1212 I sure am going to miss watching you play and cheering you on with the rest of Smashville, but I so look forward to seeing what God has in store for you in this next chapter of your life", she explained.

One of the top veteran free agents when he announced his departure in August, Fisher will be welcomed back to the Predators at a Wednesday press conference, The Tennessean reported, and he won't be returning on some kind of honorary one-day deal.

And make no mistake, there is no doubt that Fisher will be in shape at some point before the February 26 deadline. He finished the year with 18 goals and 24 assists, rating fifth on the team in points.

She responded simply, "you know what's confusing....your sudden foreign accent ". In one super NSFW picture, Kim practically went topless under a fur coat.

That announcement came after Fisher spent the morning skating in full Predators gear on Wednesday morning at Bridgestone Arena. "I had the blessing of the family, so felt good about that", he explained.

Nashville has added centres Kyle Turris and Nick Bonino to their roster since Fisher last played.

Poile said there's not timetable for Fisher playing in games.
