Fisher will miss 4-6 months after rupturing his Achilles during a training session in early July.
Fisher is expected to miss at least the first two months of the regular season. Fisher finished fourth on the Predators with 49 points (20G / 29A) in 75 games last season. With Fisher out, the Predators went out and singed Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy each to one-year contracts on Tuesday.
Fisher (lower-body) will take warmups and is a game-time decision.
Fisher has missed the last four games but could return tonight vs. the Penguins. If Fisher is unable to go tonight, he will likely play tomorrow vs. the Blackhawks. The Predators will hit the ice for warmups at 6:30 pm EST, his status should be known closer to puck drop.
Fisher will miss his third consecutive contest after being injured in the second period on October 2 versus Los Angeles. Fisher has been practicing, but consider him questionable for Tuesday when Nashville faces the Islanders.
Fisher has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury. Predators head coach Barry Trotz said there is a chance that Fisher could return to the lineup tonight. Fisher has two goals and three assists in seven games.
Predators head coach Barry Trotz said it will be up to Fisher whether or not he’ll be ready for Thursday’s game against Winnipeg. I did notice Fisher was walking with a bit of a limp in the locker room area, so I’d bet on him sitting out at least one more night.
