We do not think this day can get any better for Nashville Predators fans, and management. While it had been rumoured that GM David Poile was looking for a forward to his lineup ahead of the deadline, no one expected this.
As reported by NHL insider Bob Mckenzie, veteran forward Mike Fisher is coming out of retirement.
The Preds forward announced his retirement from the NHL back in August.
Fisher had been named captain after defenseman Shea Weber was traded to the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman P.K. Subban on June 29, 2016. He had 585 points (276 goals, 309 assists) in 1,088 NHL games with the Predators and Ottawa Senators. He was Ottawa's second-round pick (No. 44) in the 1998 NHL Draft.
Fisher helped Nashville reach the Stanley Cup Final for the first time last season. It lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games.
