The Predators captain received an outpouring of love from teammates, former teammates, opponents, his country superstar wife and basically the entire Nashville area on social media after the announcement.

From Predators defenseman P.K. Subban to Ottawa Senators forward Nate Thompson to the Tennesee Titans of the NFL, seemingly everyone wanted Fisher to know how they felt about him.
