Preds' Fisher Finds First Twine Of 2014-15

News: Mike Fisher scored his first goal of the year on a first-period power play Thursday in a 5-1 rout of the Coyotes. He also added an assist and went plus-1 over 16:41 of ice time.
Analysis: Mike Fisher opened with three quiet games after missing the start of the year with an Achilles injury, but now has four points in his last four contests and has generally looked more active on the offensive end. There's fantasy value in a variety of formats here.

Successful Return To Lineup For Preds' Fisher

News: Mike Fisher made his season debut for the Preds during Thursday's 1-0 overtime win against the Oilers. He logged nearly 13 minutes of ice time, was 9-for-14 on faceoffs and had three hits. Fisher, who underwent surgery in July for a ruptured Achilles tendon, said after the game that his foot "felt better than I thought it would at this point".
Analysis: Going forward, you should expect Mike Fisher's ice time to increase as coach Peter Laviolette gradually eases him back into a top-six role. He may not see the 18-19 minutes he was used to seeing back when he was centering the Preds' top line, but 16-17 minutes per night is probably a reasonable expectation.

Preds Activate Fisher For Thursday's Game

News: Mike Fisher (Achilles) will be activated from the non-roster injury list and make his season debut Thursday against the Oilers.
Analysis: Mike Fisher was a full participant in morning skate and was cleared for a return to action by the team's medical staff on Thanksgiving Day, just like he had been planning all along after suffering the Achilles injury back in July. He's set to center the third line with Olli Jokinen and Derek Roy, but it wouldn't be surprising if coach Peter Laviolette experiments with different mates for Fisher over the course of the game in an effort to determine where he fits in best.

Preds' Fisher (Achilles) Skates Friday

News: Mike Fisher (Achilles) was on the ice for Thursday's morning skate, centering a line between Olli Jokinen and Derek Roy, according to Brooks Bratten of the Preds' official website.
Analysis: Mike Fisher has been targeting a Thanksgiving Day return to the lineup ever since undergoing surgery July 3, and here we are, right on schedule. We expect some sort of announcement regarding his availability against the Oilers Thursday evening, so stay tuned.

Preds' Fisher (Achilles) Nearing Return

News: Mike Fisher (achilles) has been cleared for contact and was a full participant in Friday's practice, the Predators' official site reports.
Analysis: Back in August, reports suggested that Mike Fisher, who had surgery July 3, was targeting a late November return, so this week's news certainly suggests he remains on that timeline. Fisher will likely slot in as the Preds' No. 2 center behind Mike Ribeiro once he gets the green light to rejoin the lineup.

Preds' Fisher Practices Tuesday

News: Mike Fisher (Achilles) was on the ice for practice Tuesday, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: It marked the first time Mike Fisher has participated in organized team drills this season, though the center was still donning a gray no-contact jersey while doing so. Fisher, who has placed on the team's non-roster injury list prior to the season after rupturing his Achilles' tendon in June, isn't expected to return to game action until late-November.

Preds' Designate Fisher (Achilles) As Non-Roster

News: Mike Fisher (Achilles) was designated a non-roster player Tuesday, according to the Predators' official website.
Analysis: Don't worry, fantasy owners - this does not mean Mike Fisher and the Preds are parting ways. It's just a way for the team to open up a roster spot given that Fisher is likely out until late November. Once he gets the green light to return, the Preds will shuffle the roster and find a spot for him. Until that time, keep him on your fantasy bench.

Preds' Fisher (Achilles) Targeting November Return

News: Mike Fisher (Achilles) skated Friday prior to the team practice, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Although there has been no change to Mike Fisher's timetable that targets a late November return, the fact that he is able to skate at this stage of his recovery is a good sign. The question is, with the Preds now much deeper at center following the offseason additions of Mike Ribeiro, Derek Roy and Olli Jokinen, where will Fisher fit in once he's healthy? Fisher has been used almost exclusively as the team's top line center ever since his arrival in Nashville in 2011, however he could be looking at a checking line role once he returns to the lineup. For this reason, he remains a serious fantasy risk in our books.

Preds' Fisher Targeting Late-November Return

News: Mike Fisher (Achilles) is targeting a return to the Predators around Thanksgiving Day, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: GM David Poile said that Mike Fisher still remains under the four-to-six month recovery timetable prescribed for him when he ruptured the Achilles tendon in July, but the center is optimistic he can meet the short end of that time frame. With Fisher unavailable to act as the top-line pivot to begin the campaign, the Predators will likely try to break in either of their offseason acquisitions, Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy, to assume important roles in the team's top six.

Preds' Fisher Suffers Ruptured Achilles

News: Mike Fisher underwent surgery on July 3 to repair a ruptured Achilles' tendon.
Analysis: The report notes that the team expects Mike Fisher -- who sustained the injury during a training session -- to make a full recovery in four-to-six months, a timetable that obviously impacts the center's availability to start the coming season. Fisher is coming off a 2013-14 campaign in which he recorded 20 goals and 49 points in 75 games for the Preds.

Preds' Fisher: Three Assists, 12 Points In Last 10

News: Mike Fisher picked up three assists in Saturday's 7-5 win over Chicago. He has 12 points, including nine assists, in his last 10 games.
Analysis: He has 49 points on the season with one game left and he could end up with his third career 50-point season. Go Fish!

Preds' Fisher Tallies Two Goals, Assist On Friday

News: Mike Fisher scored two goals and assisted on another during the Predators' 5-2 win over the Ducks on Friday.
Analysis: Mike Fisher has played well recently with seven points (two goals, five assists) over his last five games, giving him 45 points over 70 games for the year. He doesn't put up a world of points as the center for the team's top line, but he does it all for them, logging minutes on both the power play and the penalty-killing units.

Preds' Fisher Building On Strong Season

News: Mike Fisher added an assist during Thursday's 6-1 romp over the Sabres. The helper put him at the 40-point mark (18 goals, 22assists) and stretched his consecutive points streak to four games.
Analysis: After missing seven games due to injury at the start of the season, Mike Fisher has been a rock ever since, averaging almost 20 minutes per night centering the Preds' top line. He's not an elite fantasy option by any stretch, but he'll serve you well in medium to deeper formats.

Preds' Fisher Finds Net In Win Friday

News: Mike Fisher scored his 17th goal of the season during the Predators' 3-2 win over the Blackhawks on Friday.
Analysis: The goal was Mike Fisher's first in eight games, but he's actually notched five assists in that span. He's got five points in seven games here in March and should be a solid fantasy asset down the stretch.

Preds' Fisher Closing Out Season On Strong Note

News: Mike Fisher recorded an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sabres, giving him eight points in his last 12 games.
Analysis: At first glance, Mike Fisher's current 45-point pace may not seem that impressive, but keep in mind he's rebounded very strongly from a weak start to the season that saw him score just 13 points in 30 games prior to the Christmas break. He continues to see upwards of 20 minutes per night centering the Preds' first line and should be used on a nightly basis by anyone in a medium to deeper fantasy format.

Preds Lose Despite Fisher's PPG

News: Mike Fisher scored on a power play and was assessed four penalty minutes in Saturday's loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: He's reached 30 points (16G, 14A) at the Olympics break. Don't expect a sudden breakout over the remainder of the season; he's probably giving his fantasy owners all they can reasonably expect from him.

Preds' Fisher: 11 Points In Last Eight Games

News: Mike Fisher scored the Predators' only goal in regulation in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Senators on Saturday night. It was his fifth goal in his last eight games.
Analysis: He has a remarkable 11 points in those eight outings after tallying 13 in his first 31. He'll inevitably slow down and may already have started that slide. But he's a worthy pick-up if you need short-term help.

Preds' Fisher Keeps Cranking

News: Mike Fisher pushed his point streak to four games and nine points, including four goals, when he notched his 11th goal of the season in Saturday's shootout loss to Florida.
Analysis: Plug Fish into your lineup, hang 10 and see where the wave takes you. Someone else will if you don't.

Predators' Fisher Continues To Be Hot

News: Mike Fisher collected two helpers in a 3-2 overtime loss to Boston on Thursday. He now has eight points in his last three games.
Analysis: The top-line center also finished Thursday with six shots on goal, two hits, and four blocked shots, rounding out a great fantasy line. Mike Fisher is up to 21 points in 34 games on the season, putting him on pace for another season around 50 points. Fisher is usually quite streaky, meaning you shouldn't get too excited about this recent surge. Still, he is worth monitoring as eight points in three games is quite impressive.

Predators' Fisher Tallies Three Points

News: Mike Fisher scored a goal, added two assists and had seven penalty minutes Monday versus the Red Wings.
Analysis: Mike Fisher has six points in his last two games, but only 19 overall. Still, when a formerly reliable 50-point scorer starts having an outburst like this, it's worth monitoring.

Fisher Carries Preds To Win

News: Mike Fisher scored twice, including the game-winner, and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Kings. It's his first two-goal game of the season.
Analysis: We called him out a week ago for his lack of production -- maybe he heard us. OK, so that's not likely, but maybe Santa brought him a new batch of sticks. It's nice to see Fish start to get his game together, but we need to see a lot more of this before he can be recommended.

Nashville's Fisher In Major Slump

News: Mike Fisher's assist Saturday was his first point in his last seven games and his first assist in 18 games.
Analysis: Wow -- 18 games? He has five goals in that span, but it's odd to see that long a drought for a guy who has been a decent playmaker. But 13 points in 29 games this season put him nowhere near his strong, first full season (2011-12) in Nashville. Bench him.

Preds' Fisher Heating Up

News: Mike Fisher scored a goal during Friday's OT loss to Philadelphia - the third time he's bulged twine in the last four games.
Analysis: After missing four games in mid-November with a lower body injury, Mike Fisher was slow out of the gate with just a single point in the following five games, but he's really been heating up since then. He should continue to center the Preds' top line going forward alongside Colin Wilson and Patric Hornqvist.

Preds' Fisher A Game-Time Decision Friday

News: Mike Fisher (lower body) will be a game-time decision Friday vs. the Penguins, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Mike Fisher plans to take part in pregame warmups, after which a decision on his status for Friday's game will be made. He was a full participant in Thursday's practice and experienced no issues, so it would appear reasonable to expect him to make his return to the lineup Friday.

Predators' Fisher Starting Friday

News: Mike Fisher (lower body) will start in Friday's game against the Penguins, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Mike Fisher was a game-time call and apparently warmups went off without a hitch and he will be in the lineup for the Predators on Friday.
