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

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Michal Kempny knocks the puck away from Nashville Predators left wing Scott Hartnell during the first period at Bridgestone Arena

When then-Predators captain Mike Fisher announced his retirement in August 2017, he explained that the decision was made all the more hard knowing that Nashville had come so painfully close bringing home the Stanley Cup.

Fisher helped lead the Predators to the Stanley Cup Final last season.

Mike Fisher insists he never thought of returning to the National Hockey League and that watching players come out of retirement always bugged him. "I got a blessing from family and my wife". "But we didn't win past year, and it was the best time in my career and we didn't win".

Colton Sissons, who Preds Head Coach Peter Laviolette often employs to win key faceoffs late in games, can still fill that role, but is also more than capable of moving to the wing if need be.

The team said Fisher hit the ice Wednesday morning.

The Preds could benefit from Fisher's presence, too, especially after the center had his best scoring marks in four years during the team's run to a Western Conference title.

"She wanted me to do it", Fisher said of playing again.

Police at first had vowed to block opposition supporters from attending Tuesday's ceremony, leading to fears of violence. Odinga took his oath to the deafening cheers of supporters before speaking briefly and swiftly departing.

And make no mistake, there is no doubt that Fisher will be in shape at some point before the February 26 deadline.

Fisher started skating Wednesday and will spend the next few weeks working himself into shape to rejoin the team.

Shocking as it may be that Fisher has made a decision to return, though, that he'll enter the Predators' lineup again more than six months after he officially announced his 1,000-plus game career was over is only one aspect of his comeback. "I didn't decide till recently, but I thought about the opportunity and how good this team is...and what could be". He is expected to sign a one-year contract to play the remainder of the season.

Mike is the fifth-leading goal scorer in Predators history, with 109 goals.

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.

No specific timetable was given for Fisher's return to game action.

Defenseman P.K. Subban said he is excited to have Fisher back after welcoming the defenseman into the locker room after being traded to Nashville.
