Nashville Predators Acquire Mike Fisher From Ottawa

According to numerous media outlets, the Nashville Predators have added some offensive depth to their team, acquiring veteran center Mike Fisher from the Ottawa Senators.

The deal will see the Senators land the Preds' first-round draft choice in 2011, as well as a conditional draft choice, perhaps as high as a second rounder, in 2013.

Originally drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the second round (44th overall), Fisher, like many Senators, had been struggling this season, registering 14 goals and 24 points through 55 games played.

Fisher (who carries a $4.2 million cap hit both this year and 2011-12 as well) also carried with him a nasty minus-19 rating, the worst of his NHL career.

Fisher was coming off a career year in 2009-10 where he amassed a total of 25 goals and 53 points, both career highs.

For Nashville, they have acquired a legitimate top-six forward who brings plenty of playoff experience and a little moxie as well.

The Preds currently sit fifth in the Western Conference standings, but with just two points between fifth and eighth place there was a real need to bring in some offensive depth.
