Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that Mike Fisher has been signed to a $1 million contract to play the remainder of the 2018 season. Fisher had retired from the sport last August after captaining the Predators to their first ever Stanley Cup final but announced his intention to return January 31.
This will be Fisher’s 18th season in the NHL and 8th with Nashville. He currently fifth in franchise history in goals (109), 10th in power-play goals (28), 11th in points (237) and has played in more playoff games than any current member of the Predators (134).
While Fisher helps on the ice, his wife Carrie Underwood, the teams biggest cheerleader, will get the crowd going in the stands. Underwood was one of the highest profile hockey fans in the league and helped introduce hockey to Southern fans who, for the most part, could not care less about the winter sport.
Looks like Nashville is in for another great postseason.
