Fisher officially confirms retirement after 18 seasons


Mike Fisher has confirmed his retirement, and this time, he will be out for good. He steps out of action but not without leaving fans and critics with some classic quotes, as he made this analogy to confirm his departure from the game.

“I’ve milked this cow as long as it’s been able to milk,”

“It’s bone dry.”

Fans who engage with live betting on Novibet Sports will find that the Predators may not be the same without Fisher on their roster. Yet, there still remain great reasons to favor the Preds in the seasons to come.

Fisher came out of retirement to rejoin the Predators for one last run, and this was his way of placing the lid on his NHL career as a player, as he and his colleagues cleaned out their lockers for the summer.

After spending 18 seasons with the Preds and Ottawa Senators, Fishers record now stands at 1,104 games played, 278 goals scored and 311 assists provided, all these culminating in 589 points, with 429 of those games, as well as 241 points coming while at Nashville in his final eight NHL campaigns.

Fisher had initially retired after 2016/17 season but resorted to skating and commenced training with the intention of returning to play and support the Predators to enable them to garner just two more victories than they did last season en-route the Stanley Cup Final.

Regardless, the season ended earlier than expected and Fisher was left disappointed, this boiling down to a lower-body injury that effectively ruled him out of a seventh and final game against Winnipeg. Nevertheless, he had no regrets from Fisher who assumed the role of captain of the side one season ago. He expressed the happiness he derived in the course of his stay with his team-mates after his return whilst hoping that the Preds would continue to grow and learn as they move forward.
