Mike Fisher Retires From the NHL After 17 Seasons . . . Carrie Underwood Is Excited to Have Him “Home a Lot More”

Mike Fisher, who married Carrie Underwood in 2010, has retired from the NHL after 17 season, according to The Tennessean.

Mike, 37, was the team captain for the Nashville Predators in 2017, leading them to the Stanley Cup Final. Mike played the last seven seasons in Nashville after being traded by the Ottawa Senators in 2010.

“I approached this season with the mindset that it could be my last, and now that it’s past, I’m looking forward to a future that includes a lot more time with my family,” Mike said to The Tennessean. “Things change when you have kids and you have a family. They’ve supported me without question, and now it’s my turn to return the favor.”

Mike and Carrie had their first child, Isaiah, in 2015.

Carrie posted a pic of Mike on Instagram this morning (Aug. 3) with the caption: “Captain @mfisher1212 I sure am going to miss watching you play and cheering you on with the rest of Smashville, but I so look forward to seeing what God has in store for you in this next chapter of your life. You’ve given your teammates and the game your all for so many years…you’ve worked so hard and made us all so proud! Isaiah and I love you so much and are so excited to be able to have you home a lot more…We can’t wait to cheer on the @predsnhl WITH you in the stands! #ThankYouSmashville #PredsFansForLife.”
