Preds’ Fisher hurt in win over Coyotes, doesn’t return


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Nashville Predators center Mike Fisher left Tuesday night’s game against the Arizona Coyotes with a lower-body injury and the team says he will not return.

At 7:56 of the second period, Arizona’s Martin Hanzal checked Fisher into the left boards inside the Coyotes zone. Fisher fell to the ice and his right skate came into contact with the boards after falling. The 35-year-old left the ice without putting any weight on his right leg.

The veteran has five goals and two assists in 23 games for the Predators.

Fisher is married to country music star Carrie Underwood.
