Center Mike Fisher has agreed to a two-year contract extension
with the Nashville Predators.

General manager David Poile announced the $8.4 million deal at a

upcoming season with a $3 million salary and a salary-cap hit of
$4.2 million.

Fisher had 24 goals and 51 points in his first full season with
the Predators. He says he loves Nashville and called it ”just a
perfect situation.”

The 32-year-old Fisher is married to country music singer Carrie
Underwood, and the couple’s primary home is in the Nashville
area.
