On May 7, during Game 6 of the NHL Playoffs this year, Carrie Underwood’s husband, Mike Fisher, had to leave the game after only being on the ice for 2:58. Reports say he is suffering from a lower-body injury.
Fisher came out of retirement late in the Nashville Predator’s season to hopefully help guide the team to the Stanley Cup. Unfortunately, Game 7 saw the end of the Pred’s journey in the playoffs. The team lost the series to the Winnipeg Jets who will go on to face the Vegas Golden Knights this Saturday.
Fisher wasn’t able to play Game 7 and was officially on a “day-to-day” basis to return if the Preds had continued. Though it’s a less than thrilling end to Fisher’s comeback from retirement, Carrie is looking on the bright side of things according to a recent tweet.
“Welp, to me & our 3 year-old, @mikefisher1212 is the greatest hockey player alive & the @PredsNHL are now & forever the greatest hockey team in NHL history! Not the ending we wanted, but we’re alive & well & I get my hubby back, so I say God is good!” she wrote.
This June, Carrie and Mike will celebrate eight years of marriage. They have one 3-year-old son named Isaiah.
