The Nashville Predators and pending unrestricted free agent Mike Fisher have been negotiating on a new deal since as early as January and it appears things could get done shortly.
“I think it’s going to probably end up at two (years),” Fisher’s agent Todd Reynolds told The Tennessean’s Adam Vingan. “I don’t know that for certain, but I think that’s probably the right number for everyone involved.”
Fisher has spent the parts of the past five seasons with the Preds.
His two-year, $8.4 million contract is set to expire next month.
“I love the city and I love the guys here in the organization,” Fisher said in February. “It’s been great. Hopefully the business part of things will take care of itself, but I definitely want to be part of it for sure.”
After missing 21 games due to a ruptured Achilles, he returned to score 19 goals and 39 points in 59 games during the 2014-15 season.
“We’re making progress,” Reynolds said. “Everyone wants the same thing, and we’re just trying to come to an agreement on what that ultimately looks like.”
