Recovery from shoulder surgery in May 2011 delayed the start of Fisher's campaign, but despite playing only 72 games he put up the second-best offensive numbers of his career. In the playoffs, things dried up a bit, and he contributed just one goal and three assists in 10 games.

Fisher's off-ice charitable endeavors earned him the 2012 NHL Foundation Player Award, only the second time a Nashville Predator has brought home a trophy from the league's annual awards event (following Steve Sullivan's Masterton win in 2010).

Outlook

Considering the fact that he was battling through an upper-body injury when traded to Nashville in February 2011, and had surgery that off-season, one has to wonder whether the extended break due to the lockout may be a blessing in disguise for the 32-year-old.

With the extended time off he should be the healthiest he's been in a long time. Let's hope it stays that way.
