Predators place Mike Fisher on injured reserve with lower-body injury

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Predators have placed center Mike Fisher on injured reserve with a lower-body injury that will keep him out of Nashville's next four games.

Nashville announced the move Wednesday and said Fisher will be re-evaluated next week.

Fisher was injured Tuesday night in a 5-2 win over Arizona. At 7:56 of the second period, Arizona's Martin Hanzal checked Fisher into the left boards inside the Coyotes zone. Fisher fell to the ice, and his right skate came into contact with the boards after falling. The 35-year-old center left the ice without putting any weight on his right leg.

The veteran has five goals and two assists in 23 games for the Predators.
