Carrie Underwood's Husband Mike Fisher Not Retiring From Hockey After All!

Carrie Underwood's Husband Mike Fisher Not Retiring From Hockey After All!

Center Mike Fisher is ending his retirement, announcing Wednesday that he will return to the Nashville Predators this season.

Fisher shocked fans by telling them he'd be hanging up his skates after a solid 17 years in the National Hockey League.

Fisher said his wife kept asking him nearly every day what he was going to do.

Predators head coach Peter Laviolette praised Fisher's return to the club, as his presence is expected not only to help the team in a battle toward the playoffs, but to boost overall morale for the club.

"I believe this team is built to win and has a very good chance, so that is part of the reason why I want to come back and compete and be a part of it", Fisher said.

Fisher, 37, said he considered this decision for weeks.

"She wanted me to do it", Fisher said of playing again. "I got a blessing from family and my wife". The team announced his return today, and Nashville fans are rather excited.

While Fisher is headed back on the ice, Poile assured the team and press that he would be offering his skills and support to the Preds, but would not take back his position as team captain, whichh now belongs to defenseman Roman Josi.

Nashville was second in the Central Division entering play Wednesday, three points behind the Winnipeg Jets with three games in hand.

Fisher has 51 points in 134 career playoff games.

Nashville has added centres Kyle Turris and Nick Bonino to their roster since Fisher last played. He came up with the Senators and played in Ottawa for ten full seasons. "But I had some conversations along the way, and the more I thought about it, I thought about the run we made a year ago, how good this team is and how good it can be, and the more I thought how much fun it could be, and I'm ready for this". He's the fifth-leading goal-scorer in Predators history with 109.

The same can't be said for the power play, however, as Nashville will nearly certainly give Fisher a shot at skating with the man advantage. The Predators started talking in December about what they might need with a possible return by Fisher at the top of the possibilities.
