Mike Fisher Announces Retirement In Heartfelt Letter To Nashville Fans

Mike Fisher

"This is the hardest decision I've ever had to make, but I know I've made the right one", writes Fisher.

Fisher spent 17 seasons in the National Hockey League and became the captain of the Predators last fall. He had 23 goals and 28 assists in 13 career playoff games.

Fisher said that coming so close to capturing the Stanley Cup this past season made the decision more trying, but that he still felt peace about retirement regardless.

Mike Fisher should definitely be proud to retire as a Predator. He added four assists in 20 postseason contests to guide the Predators to the Stanley Cup Final, where they lost to the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

Underwood herself surprised the crowd during a Stanley Cup playoff game on April 17 when she stepped onto the ice to sing the National Anthem, with numerous genre's biggest stars including Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Trisha Yearwood and Faith Hill following suit and performing the anthem during home games. "He's just a terrific person and I can't say enough great things about him and his family and what he's meant for the Nashville organization".

"I believe that this team, that this city, is going to win a championship, and I'm going to be the biggest fan", Fisher wrote. "It's impossible to thank every one of them, but I'll try". He was traded to Nashville during the 2010-2011 season. The hockey player said this is his time to focus on spending more time with his family that has supported him "without question" along the way. Potential candidates to take over the captain's role will likely include Subban, Roman Josi, Ryan Ellis and Ryan Johansen among others. A fan favourite Fisher will surely get his time of recognition when the Predators hit the ice for the 2017-18 campaign and if Team Canada is looking for a leader on their Olympic squad, don't count the 37-year-old out.
