OH NOOOOOOOO!

From the Preds...

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."

This is the absolute worst. Mike Fisher was 4th in scoring for the Preds a season ago, and his leadership, experience, and let's face it, his handsomeness will be very difficult to replace. He's openly speculated that his time in the league could be nearing an end, and an injury like this that could keep him out until the new year is very disturbing. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Mike. I'm gonna go throw up now...
