NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Veteran center Mike Fisher was named the seventh captain in franchise history on Thursday.
“It’s really special to be wearing the ‘C,’” Fisher said. “There’s no question it’s an honor, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to wear it for a great organization, great people and a great team. I couldn’t be happier, and I’m excited. I’m looking forward to the season and it’s going to be a fun challenge.”
According to the team, the title stands for someone “who plays the game with honor and integrity. Someone who is unanimously respected by his teammates, coaches and opponents. Someone who is just as admirable off the ice as he is on it.”
