Nashville Predators Mike Fisher Retires

Nashville Predators captain Mike Fisher announced his retirement from the NHL in an article published in the Tennessean on Thursday morning.

Mike Fisher ranks fourth in franchise history with 109 goals and leaves the organization ranked in the top 10 in power-play goals, game-winners, and goals-per-game.

The 37-year-old spent parts of seven seasons with the Nashville Predators after being traded to Nashville by the Ottawa Senators for a pair of draft picks in 2011.

A second-round pick by the Sens in 1988, Mike Fisher leaves having played 1,088 regular-season games, in which he scored 276 goals and 585 points. He added 23 goals and 51 points in 134 playoff games.

And he’ll be rooting for the Preds in retirement.

“I believe that this team, that this city, is going to win a championship, and I’m going to be the biggest fan,” Mike Fisher wrote. ”No one will be happier than I will be to see it happen, because, these fans, they deserve it.”
