NHL News and Rumors: Predators Sign Volchenkov, Lose Fisher

  • Nashville Predators: The Predators sign defenseman Anton Volchenkov to a one-year, $1 million contract.

    “Anton provides a strong veteran presence that will complement our young, talented defensive corps nicely,” Poile said. “He is a physical, left-handed shooting defenseman who can match up with top-line forwards and effectively kill penalties.”

  • Joosh Cooper of the Tennessean: Predators center Mike Fisher ruptured his Achilles tendon and will be out four to six months. He suffered the injury during a training session, and had successful surgery last Thursday.

    “We expect Mike to make a full recovery in four-to-six months, and look forward to his return to the ice,” general manager David Poile said.

  • Josh Cooper: Cooper thinks this may add urgency to potentially trading for Vincent Lecavalier.

    Luckily for Mike Fisher he’s got Carrie Underwood to care for him during those 4-6 months.
