As AZ Sports Nashville reported, Fisher injured the meniscus of his left knee. The unfortunate incident took place in the first period of the Game 6 between the Predators and the Winnipeg Jets.

At that point, Peter Laviolette, the team's coach, didn’t provide any information about Fisher’s health, but his fans knew it was serious when he was not seen either practicing or skating the days following the game.

Now, the website of the NHL revealed that Fisher retired on May 12, after the Predators lost the decisive Game 7. He played at the highest level of hockey for 18 seasons.

In this short season, he had four points (two goals, two assists) in 16 games. During the 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games he played, he managed to score only one goal.

Even though learning that Fisher retired might surprise many people, it was not the first time he did so. At the end of the 2016-2017 season, when he was the Predators’ captain, he retired.

Thankfully for the fans who wanted to see him back on the ice, he signed another contract with the same team in late-February. In an interview he had with NHL, he confessed he had no plans to coming out of retirement again.
