    Fisher's surgery on knee successful

    Post by PTFlea on Wed Sep 03, 2008 6:22 pm

    On the Team 1200 just now I caught York talking to Fisher. Fisher was saying that the surgery on his knee was very invasive and took a lot longer than he thought to be fully healed...

    But that's apparently the good news - it's 100% fully healed. Enough for Fisher to get back out there and get into a charity tourney with Chris Neil.

    He's been working out like a demon and is in top physical form (this one took some prodding by York).

    Said he's way happier to be playing with Ruutu than against him. :D

    That's all I caught, but the knee surgery thing was the most important for me.

    Maybe the only reason to be happy that we had so much off time this spring/summer with the early playoff exit.

    I agree...this time. Smile

    What about his sports hernia? I thought he had issues with that too. I hope he's coming in 100% like he claims. He can be an amazing force when healthy.

    I caught the same interview as well. There weren't too many hockey related questions except his health and knee. He talked about his hockey camp earlier this summer. He managed to raise a lot of money for Roger's house so that's great news. Him and Neil are playing street hockey with some 100 kids this weekend for chairity. Yorky also made a funny comment about how Chris Neil never goes easy on little kids at these kind of events and at hockey camps.

    This worries me a little. I really hope his knee is good to go otherwise he could have another below average season.

    Oh yeah! I want to see Fisher coming out strong and PISSED OFF!! LOL

    But seriously, I'd be surprised if he won't line up Mark Bell, for instance...

    As long as his knee holds up and that sports hernia is a thing of the past, I for one am SUPER excited to see him suit up and hit the ice!
