NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Mike Fisher won't play for the Predators in Game 7 against the Winnipeg Jets because of a lower-body injury.

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 center 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 center.

The winner of Game 7 faces the expansion Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference final that begins Saturday.
