The Nashville Predators have activated Mike Fisher from injured reserve and reassigned Colton Sissons to the Milwaukee Admirals. Now all that will remain to be seen is whether or not the weather will impede Sissons ability to join the Admirals for tonight’s home game against the Chicago Wolves. It would be the first time since 11/24/15 that the Admirals had their team captain back on the ice.
