Fisher announced his retirement from the NHL on Saturday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fisher came out of retirement and joined Nashville in February in hopes of helping the Predators win their first Stanley Cup, but ultimately fell short, losing to the Jets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semi-finals. The 1998 second-round pick will hang up his skates having racked up 278 goals and 589 points during his fantastic NHL career which spanned 18 seasons.

Fisher (undisclosed) recorded one point (a goal) in the 2018 playoffs.

EDGE Analysis

Fisher was unfit to play in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, and the Predators ended up losing the series to the Jets, so now there are questions as to whether he'll return for at least one more season. The 37-year-old came out of retirement and joined Nashville for a March 2 regular-season contest in Vancouver, with Fisher making an immediate impact by scoring once on three shot attempts. Of course, if the Canadian is up for more NHL hockey, his agent will have to negotiate a new contract on his behalf since he's a pending unrestricted free agent.

Fisher's injury concerns his lower body and he'll miss Game 7 against the Jets on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Fisher is officially day-to-day, and it appears that Nick Bonino and Calle Jarnkrork will round out the bottom-six center spot without him.

Predators coach Peter Laviolette didn't have any new information on Fisher (undisclosed) as of Wednesday, the eve of Game 7 against the Jets, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not all that surprising that the Preds aren't disclosing information on Fisher since the club is notorious for not tipping its hand regarding player injuries, especially during the playoffs. The 37-year-old, who came out of retirement in an effort to help Nashville in these playoffs, has just one goal representing his point total through 12 postseason contests, though he is a physical presence (30 hits) who used to captain the Predators and that shouldn't be overlooked as they look to squeak past the Jets in Game 7 on Thursday.

Fisher was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

After coming out of retirement at the beginning of March to help the Predators down the stretch, the team continues to break Fisher in slowly by not playing him in back-to-back game situations. The 37-year-old veteran will get a chance to suit up Sunday when the Preds take on the Jets.

Fisher, who came out of retirement to rejoin the Predators, is set for a homecoming appearance at Bridgestone Arena against the Stars on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Fisher made a triumphant return to game ice Friday, notching a goal on three shots over 10:45 of ice time in an overtime win over the Canucks. The 37-year-old spent eight years in Nashville before signing a one-year, $1 million deal for this reunion tour, accumulating 348 points (167 goals, 181 assists) through 675 games. A leader with two-way acumen, Fisher should be an X-factor of sorts as the Preds look to make another strong run at the Stanley Cup.

Fisher will make his season debut for the Predators on Friday against the Canucks, The Tennesseean reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fisher needed some time to get up to speed after officially signing with the club Feb. 26. After sitting out the last two games, the veteran winger appears set to rejoin the lineup for Nashville on Friday against the Canucks. However, he's expected to slot in on the fourth line and have his ice time limited early in his run with the club. Even when he's full-go, the 37-year-old will likely slot in among the bottom six.

Fisher, as expected, finalized the details of his one-year, $1 million contract with Nashville on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

By signing Monday, Fisher will be eligible to play for the Predators throughout the postseason. When the center first takes the ice for the club remains to be seen, but fantasy owners in need of a late-season addition may want to consider giving him a look. With Nashville departing on a four-game road trip, it seems likely the veteran will suit up at some point during this stretch.

Fisher is expected to sign a one-year, $1 million contract with the Predators on Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fisher spent the last six-plus seasons with Nashville before temporarily retiring last offseason. With the Predators trading Pontus Aberg to Edmonton on Sunday, the 37-year-old center should have a bottom-six role moving forward. He could be worth a look in deep fantasy leagues but not much beyond that.

Fisher expects to return to the Predators lineup Mar. 1 against the Oilers, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fisher started practicing Monday and must sign with the team by Feb. 26 in order to be eligible to prop up the Preds' playoff push. The 37-year-old pivot excelled with 18 goals and 42 points -- 17 on the power play -- in 72 games last campaign, dishing out 160 hits in that span as well. Nashville's top six is already oozing with talent, though, so it'll be interesting to see how the former captain is deployed.
