Fisher is still an unrestricted free agent and he has been contemplating retirement. "He is on vacation, and I have been away and (focused on preparing for arbitration hearings)," Poile said Monday. "I'm hoping to talk to him later this week to see where he's at. I'd say by next week, we should have an update." The Predators would like to have their captain back for another season.

Mike Fisher hasn't decided yet if he will return to the NHL next season.

He is still going over his options. "Everyone wants to win in this game, no one probably more than me," Fisher said. "But there's other things. At the end of the day, this is a game. It's an important part of my life, but it's not everything and there's other decisions and other people that are involved, so we'll take those into account. For me, it's faith, family and then hockey. So we'll see where that fits in because, like I said, I love being part of this group. I had a blast." He can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and he is also considering retirement.

Mike Fisher remains goalless in 19 games so far this post-season.

Fisher entered the Cup Final with zero points in his last 14 games but has now picked up four assists in the first five games of the Final. Sunday can be Fisher's last chance at a Stanley Cup and time is running out for him to find the back of the net and make a big impact for his team.

Mike Fisher celebrated his 37th birthday on Monday and earned an assist in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Mike Fisher registered an assist in Nashville's 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Fisher didn't register a point in his first 14 playoff games in 2017, but he has three assists in his last two contests. Unfortunately for the Predators his recent offensive surge hasn't tipped the scales in their favor as Nashville still trails 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Final.
Jun 1 - 10:02 AM

Nashville captain Mike Fisher drew two assists in the opening game of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night, a 5-3 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh.

Fisher missed the Preds' previous two games with an injury that was not disclosed publicly. He did not have a point in the 14 playoff games in which he did play. With wife/singer Carrie Underwood in the crowd, Fisher grabbed assists on the Preds' strong comeback attempt. They were down 3-0 after the first period but tied it 3-3. Fisher assisted on a power-play goal by Ryan Ellis at 8:21 of the second period. He assisted on the game-tying goal by Frederick Gaudreau at 13:21 of the third period. Colton Sissons had the Preds' second goal at 10:06 of the second period. Sissons' goal was his sixth of the postseason. Ellis' goal was his fifth and Gaudreau's was his first.

Mike Fisher is projected to play between Viktor Arvidsson and James Neal in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

He skated on that line during Sunday's practice, so he could be in that spot on Monday night in his return from injury. Fisher missed two games with an unknown issue, but he is ready to play again. He has zero points in 14 playoff games.
May 29 - 11:23 AM

Mike Fisher (undisclosed) is expected to be available for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, per Predators coach Peter Laviolette.

Fisher returned to practice on Thursday and said that he felt pretty good, so it's not surprising to see him projected to return. It's also a big boost for the Predators to get a center back given that Ryan Johansen won't be available for the Stanley Cup Final.
May 28 - 2:43 PM

Mike Fisher (undisclosed) practiced on Thursday for the first time since he was hurt on May 18.

"I feel pretty good," Fisher said. "I skated a few days here. Still not cleared, but it felt good to get out there with the guys." The hope is that Fisher will be available for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday. He has no points in 14 postseason games this year.
May 25 - 6:40 PM

According to Nashville GM David Poile, there is a very good chance that Mike Fisher will be available for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Fisher has missed the last two games with an undisclosed injury. The Predators will get back on the ice for practice on Thursday and then travel to Pittsburgh or Ottawa over the weekend.
May 24 - 3:20 PM

Mike Fisher (undisclosed) isn't available for Game 6 Monday night.

That's not really surprising given that Fisher also missed the Monday morning skate. This will be his second straight contest on the sidelines.
May 22 - 8:03 PM

Mike Fisher (undisclosed) didn't take part in Nashville's morning skate.

We don't know yet if Fisher will be available for Monday's contest, but it seems unlikely given this development. He wasn't able to play in Game 5 on Saturday after being hurt in Game 4.
May 22 - 12:02 PM

Mike Fisher, who did not play in Game 5 Saturday night due to an undisclosed injury, is considered day-to-day.

It is unclear if Fisher will be able to suit up Monday for Game 6. If he can't go Frederick Gaudreau, who played a strong game Saturday night, will take his place once again.
