Nashville Captain Mike Fisher Retires

On Thursday morning it became official: Mike Fisher is retiring.

Nashville’s captain posted a Thank You letter to Preds fans on the team’s website Thursday. The 37-year-old forward was an unrestricted free agent posted 18 goals and 24 assists in 72 regular season games last year and added four assists in 20 postseason contests as the Preds advanced to the Stanley Cup Final.

Originally a second round pick (44th overall) in the 1998 NHL Draft by the Ottawa Senators, Fisher finishes his career with 276 goals and 309 assists in 1,088 regular season games. To put that into perspective, Filip Forsberg was five years old when Fisher made his NHL debut.

    Maybe Stan can get him for one year at under a mil. Carrie likes Chicago.

    ER, that’s what I was thinking. They got better with adding a good D man. Now with this the FW they added and didn’t keep are a little worse. Maybe their same overall but not better now.
