Predators rookie forward Colton Sissons said he likes to model his game after Mike Fisher.

So for Sissons, who will make his NHL debut tonight against the Jets, it was surreal to see Fisher dressing at the stall at the other end of the dressing room.

“He’s definitely a guy that I’ve looked up to and watching the NHL, being a younger guy going through junior,” Sissons said of the veteran forward.

The Predators called up Sissons from the Milwaukee Admirals on Tuesday. The forward has 28 points in 42 games with the AHL team, and leads it in goals with 16. He was the 50th overall pick in the 2012 draft, and is known as a strong two-way forward with some offensive leanings.

“He’s been a really, really detailed player,” Predators coach Barry Trotz said. “Dean Evason, who coaches in Milwaukee, has been raving about him all year. He has been the most consistent guy, detailed, he has come from a good (major junior) program in Kelowna.”

Sissons believes he will come as advertised.
