Mike Fisher player 17 seasons in the NHL totaling over 1000 games between his time with the Ottawa Senators and Nashville Predators.
Of course, in that time, he made an impact on a lot of people and players – and not just the ones on his team. He was always considered a strong leader in the game and for people who like old time hockey, he was definitely considered someone who “played the game the right way”. Most recently, he led the Nashville Predators to the Stanley Cup Final as their captain, but now he has called it quits.
Today in a Players’ Tribune-style article with the Tennessean, he wrote his goodbye to the NHL, stating that this was the “Hardest decision [he’s] ever had to make, be [he] knows [he’s] made the right one.”
It may be the right decision for him, but by the reaction after his announcement, he will definitely be missed.
Congratulations on an incredible career Mike and we wish you the best in all of your future endeavors.
