Well that was quick!!
After the Preds’ long season after the Stanley Cup Final, Mike Fisher announced his retirement on August of 2017. Five months later, he made the announcement that maybe he’s not quite ready yet for retirement.
On Wednesday morning at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Fisher took to the ice in what is the first step toward the former Predators centerman rejoining the club he captained to within two wins of a Stanley Cup last spring – with hopes of getting just a little bit further this time around.
Indeed, Fisher intends to begin skating and working out on his own before joining the entire team for practices. The ultimate goal is to sign a contract before the Feb. 26 trade deadline and return to game action and pursue the one thing every hockey player dreams of.
