Meet the Ottawa Senators’ new Mike Fisher: Zack Smith

Many Ottawa Senators fans were shocked and quickly decried the trade of rugged centre Mike Fisher to the Nashville Predators last February, suggesting his aggressive two-way play and popularity in the city (especially with female fans) were too valuable for the team to give up. The Senators’ general manager Bryan Murray came under fire for giving up a player like Fisher, with critics arguing that a rebuilding team needs a veteran presence like Fisher to succeed.
