Mike Fisher making comeback with Predators

Fantasy Hockey Breaking News Carrie Underwood's Husband Mike Fisher Is Returning to the NHL

Fisher had 18 goals and 24 assists with Nashville in his 17th National Hockey League season a year ago as the team earned its first Western Conference title.

Mike Fisher announced at a press conference Wednesday morning he'll return to play for the Nashville Predators during the 2018 season. The injury put the Predators at a major disadvantage, and its something the franchise looks to be keen on being ready for this season should any of their centers go down.

Knowing we were so close to winning it all in June only makes it more hard to leave it behind, but I do so with hope. "I'm going to see just how I feel, skate on my own for a bit and get in shape". The Predators signed centre Nick Bonino in free agency and landed centre Kyle Turris in November from Ottawa in a three-way trade.

Nashville wanted Fisher back last summer.

Laviolette might want to think twice before utilizing Fisher even almost as heavily on the penalty kill this time around, though.

The Story Behind Black History Month


Fisher said the support of his family, General Manager David Poile, Head Coach Peter Laviolette and Josi is what slowly turned his no into a yes as the months went by from his initial retirement on August 3.

The 37-year-old likely still has enough left in him to help the Predators make their upcoming playoff push. There's no need to add Fisher, unless he's working as a fill-in when another top penalty killer is in the box. Keep in mind that he won't be playing for Nashville immediately and hasn't actually signed yet.

The Predators now sit in second place in the Central Division with a 48-29-12 record and a plus-21 goal differential. Not only that, but Fisher's shot attempt generation on the man advantage was significant. He played in 20 of the Predators' 22 post-season games last spring in winning their first Western Conference title. Even on the power play. He can still chip in and the understanding of where to be and how to make plays doesn't disappear overnight.

After falling short in the Stanley Cup Finals last season, Fisher started telling friends he missed the action last month. He has 23 goals and 28 assists in 134 career playoff games.
