The Nashville Predators are set to announce today that long-time forward and franchise-icon Mike Fisher will become the team's next captain, according to sources.
Fisher has been a big part of this Predators team since he was acquired from the Ottawa Senators in a trade in 2011. He has been a big part of the success this Predators team has had and his leadership makes him well deserved for this role.
The Predators needed a new captain after they traded away Shea Weber in the blockbuster one for one swap with P.K. Subban earlier in the offseason.
