Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile released the following statement today regarding forward Mike Fisher.
“Predators forward and alternate captain Mike Fisher sustained a ruptured Achilles tendon during a training session and underwent successful surgery on Thursday, July 3. We expect Mike to make a full recovery in four-to-six months, and look forward to his return to the ice.”
I don't buy the 4-6 months. Rupturing an achilles is damn near a year recovery for most.
Guess Philly just got some leverage on us.
I think he will retire. He's already said this would have likely been his last year. We had a guy on our post-collegiate lacrosse league tear his Achilles a couple month ago; it's literally an athlete's worst nightmare, excluding freak cardiac / other potentially fatal issues.
