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

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

After announcing his retirement during the summer of 2017, Fisher chose to stick it out for one more run as he made the choice to return to the Preds for the remainder of their 2017-2018 season.

Fisher said his wife, country music star Carrie Underwood, encouraged him to make a comeback.

Fisher played the past seven seasons with Nashville and was the team's captain in 2016-17 when the Predators made their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Final, losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games. Fisher has been enjoying his retirement and had no intention of returning to the National Hockey League.

"SEE YOU AGAIN", the team tweeted, with a picture of Fisher on the ice, all decked out in white and yellow.

At this time, no word yet on if Fisher will extend his contract past the end of the season.

Knowing we were so close to winning it all in June only makes it more hard to leave it behind, but I do so with hope. "After I retired, I was done and that's what I felt like was the right decision then".

But Fisher's return is expected to be short-lived; the player revealed his return to the Preds is "just for this year - that's my plan".

"Bear with me, I'm still a little out of breath from the skate this morning", Fisher joked.

Mike Fisher is returning to the Nashville Predators.

Poile, Laviolette and Josi thought it was important in December to reach out one more time to Fisher and make their intentions clear: if the leadership, passion and on-ice talent of Mike Fisher could ever be added back to the Predators' roster, they would explore every option to make it happen. Not from Fisher himself, not from coach Peter Laviolette and certainly not from Poile, who didn't question for a second whether or not the comeback bid would work.

Fisher said his wife kept asking him nearly every day what he was going to do. Fisher had 18 goals and 24 assists last season as Nashville earned its first Western Conference title.

Fisher has 51 points in 134 career playoff games.

The return of Fisher bolsters the Predators' already strong group of centers - including Ryan Johansen, Kyle Turris and Nick Bonino, who was signed to replace Fisher in the offseason.
