On Monday night (2/25), former Nashville Predators captain Mike Fisher returned to the ice – this time for a new gig. Joined by his four-year-old son Isaiah, Fisher found himself center ice for the ceremonial puck drop. While the former NHL-er was being honored for his efforts both on and off the ice, it was Isaiah who truly stole the show.
After walking the carpet to meet current Preds captain Roman Josi and Edmonton Oilers’ Milan Lucic, the eager little boy grinned ear to ear for a quick photo and then dropped the puck on the ice.
The puck drop came just days after Fisher and his wife, country star Carrie Underwood, celebrated Isaiah’s fourth birthday party with an adorable Kermit the Frog cake. The delicious treat was created by Underwood’s longtime friend Ivy Childers of Ivy Cakes.

Ummm… @iveychilders and @iveycakestore have outdone themselves once again! Isaiah loves the Muppets and his favorite movie right now is “Muppets Most Wanted.” He wanted a “most dangerous frog” cake and he most certainly got one! And it tasted as delicious as it looked! Thanks for making his birthday celebration extra special! #MyBestieIsABaker #IveyCake #Yum

The Preds game was Fisher’s first public outing since he and Underwood welcomed their second child together on January 23.
“Jacob Bryan Fisher entered the world in the wee hours of the morning on Monday…his mom, dad and big brother couldn’t be happier for God to trust them with taking care of this little miracle! Our hearts are full, our eyes are tired and our lives are forever changed. Life is good…,” wrote Underwood upon his arrival.
