Mike Fisher injury looms over training camp; Blue, White & Silver teams announced

The enthusiasm behind the opening of Nashville Predators training camp becomes a little bit muted this afternoon with an update via Josh Cooper that Mike Fisher's shoulder is recovering slowly from his summer surgery, with an uncertain timetable for his return. That appears to be confirmed by the team, as well, given the release of the Blue, White & Silver team rosters for training camp, which include Fisher under an "Injured" heading.

Follow after the jump for a breakdown of the three squads!

Yesterday we published the training camp schedule & roster, so just remember that you'll get your first chance to catch the team in action this weekend, from 10:00 - 2:20 at Centennial Sportsplex.
