Nashville Predators to Announce Mike Fisher's Return From Retirement

Nashville Predators to Announce Mike Fisher's Return From Retirement

Less than a half a year after he hung up his skates, wrote a thank-you letter to Tennessee and said he was making the "right" decision to retire at age 37, former Nashville Predators captain Mike Fisher is coming back to the National Hockey League. His goal is to sign a contract with the team prior to the NHL's February 26 trade deadline.

Fisher will turn 38 on June 5.

The former Predators captain played seven seasons with the club, scoring 109 goals and 237 points.

He is expected to sign a one-year contract to play the remainder of the season, though Poile said the team has no timeline for his season debut. Mike Fisher announced at a press conference Wednesday morning he'll return to play for the Nashville Predators during the 2018 season. Coach Peter Laviolette had discussions with Fisher, and a meeting with Josi clinched the deal. "You've given your teammates and the game [your] all for so many years...you've worked so hard and made us all so proud!"

Poile said he met with the team earlier Wednesday and that the players were excited to have him back.

Fisher, who wore the no. 12 sweater, announced his retirement in August.

"I believe this team is built to win".

Fisher said at the start of the season that he was still navigating through a post-NHL life.

"Around Christmastime, it's when I really first began missing the game", Fisher said. Along with Fisher, there's Kyle Turris, Ryan Johansen, Nick Bonino, Calle Jarnkrok, Colton Sissons and Frederic Gaudreau - so, plenty of options.
