Mike Fisher - #12 - Center - 6'1" - 215lbs

News: Fisher (Achilles) is targeting a return to the Predators around Thanksgiving Day, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Impact: GM David Poile said that Fisher still remains under the four-to-six month recovery timetable prescribed for him when he ruptured the Achilles tendon in July, but the center is optimistic he can meet the short end of that time frame. With Fisher unavailable to act as the top-line pivot to begin the campaign, the Predators will likely try to break in either of their offseason acquisitions, Mike Ribeiro and Derek Roy, to assume important roles in the team's top six.

News: The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Michael Del Zotto to a one-year contract.
Impact: The 24-year-old Del Zotto had a goal and four assists in 25 games for Nashville last year. The Flyers announced earlier Tuesday that veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen was hospitalized in Finland with blood clots in his lower right leg and in both lungs. Del Zotto was a first-round pick by the New York Rangers in 2008.
