Forward Mike Fisher practiced with the Nashville Predators on Monday for the first time since he announced he was coming out of retirement Jan. 31.

Fisher skated on a line with Colton Sissons and Miikka Salomaki, with forward Austin Watson taking a maintenance day. He had been skating on his own since the announcement.

"I think like anything else, it's a little bit of muscle memory and getting back in shape and feeling good," Fisher said. "It just takes time. Because it's been so long in the past however many months, I actually feel better than I thought I would at this point."

Fisher has not yet signed a contract with the Predators and must do so by Feb. 26 to be able to play the remainder of the season. He has seen progress the past two weeks but wants to make sure his body continues to respond well.
