The team announced Fisher’s absence Thursday about three hours before puck drop of the deciding game in the second-round series between the NHL’s top two teams.
The Predators called Fisher day-to-day in the first update on the 37-year-old centre since he left in the first period of Game 6 Monday.
Fisher, who came out of retirement late in the season to rejoin the team he helped lead to the Stanley Cup Final a year ago, skated just five shifts for 2:58 in Game 6.
Calle Jarnkrok is expected to replace Fisher as Nashville’s fourth-line centre.
The winner of Game 7 faces the expansion Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference final that begins Saturday.
