As we reported early this morning, Nashville Predators captain Mike Fisher is calling it quits. Just months after falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2017 Stanley Cup Final, Fisher has made the decision to officially retire from the NHL.
Just like many other teammates and rivals, star defenseman P.K. Subban felt the need to say goodbye one last time to the 38-year-old forward, in a very emotional Instagram post:
Even though they have only played one season together, it seems like the two were pretty close.
Fisher leaves the game a two-time Stanley Cup Finalist and one of the best defensive forwards of his generation. The native of Peterborough, Ontario scored 276 goals and 585 points in 1088 career games split between the Preds and the Ottawa Senators.
