Nashville Predators Captain Mike Fisher Unsure About NHL Future
Like they always say, sometimes it’s good to go out on a high note.
Mike Fisher, captain of the Nashville Predators and husband to Carrie Underwood, is in limbo regarding his future as an NHL player. After soaring to new heights with the Preds this past season by reaching the Stanley Cup Final series for the first time in the team’s history, Fisher will take the next few months off of the high to make the tough decision of carrying on as captain or stepping down into retirement.
“I want to separate myself from the season and get some quiet time, kind of away, prayer and just figure out my decision,” said Fisher recently to local news station WKRN News 2. “It’s not an easy decision, no question. Lots of positives to both, but it’ll take time. I know it’ll come. I’ll try not to put any pressure on myself.”
While the contemplation may come as a shock, Fisher will be up in July as an unrestricted free agent and must make a move from then on out to determine if he’ll stick with his navy and gold guys or take one for the home team aka becoming a full-time husband and father to Underwood and their family.
Mike Fisher and his Preds crew received huge praise from not only fans of the Nashville hockey team, but the Music City community as a whole for boosting the morale around town as a sports hub and creating a connection within the area to root as the united ‘Seventh Man’ crowd.
The Nashville Predators recently announced their preseason game lineup, which they will return back to their home ice at Smashville on September 19 to match up against the Florida Panthers.
