Of the over 6,400 hockey players that have skated in the NHL since 1917, only 432 have tallied 500 points in their career. Nashville Predators forward Mike Fisher is now No. 433 thanks to his power-play goal on Thursday against the St. Louis Blues.
In a strange play, Preds defenseman Roman Josi took a shot at the Blues net which caught a portion of Fisher's arm on the way to the net. The puck then bounced off the end wall before trickling off the back of Blues goaltender Brian Elliott and into the cage.
After going scoreless in his first three games back in the lineup after recovering from an offseason Achilles injury, Fisher has posted 19 points in 23 games.
Entering Thursday's game against St. Louis, Fisher was averaging 18:18 time on ice (second among team forwards) and had a 51.9 percent success rate in the face-off circle.
Acquired from Ottawa on Feb. 10, 2010, Fisher has now appeared in 238 games for the Predators, amassing 152 of his 500 points over that time span. Fisher sits 18th all-time in franchise scoring, trailing only forward Colin Wilson and Captain Shea Weber in scoring by an active Predators player.
