Mike Fisher Unretiring; Returning to Preds


Recommended Posts

Fisher plans to end retirement, rejoin Predators

37-year-old spent past seven seasons with Nashville




Center Mike Fishertook the first step to returning as an active NHL player on Wednesday when he took the ice at Bridgestone Arena with the goal of signing a contract and returning to the Nashville Predators before the NHL Trade Deadline on Feb. 26.


Fisher, 37, played the past seven seasons with the Predators and was Nashville's captain last season, when the Predators made their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Final, losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games.


After Fisher skated, he appeared at a news conference to announce his plans, along with Predators general manager David Poile and coach Peter Laviolette.


"I'm all in," he said. "I believe this team is built to win. We have a very good chance. So that is part of the reason why I want to come back and compete and be a part of it. We didn't win last year and it was the best time of my career.


"I believe this year can be our year. That's what I want to be a part of and have some fun."
