Mike Fisher: NHL Center Welcomes Trade To Be Near Wife Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood Will Be Ecstatic to Know Her Husband Has Been Traded to Nashville
It is tough to maintain a marriage when one party is constantly on the road. Now couple that with the fact that husband and wife have demanding schedules and you can write the rest. But one couple was dealt a blessing Thursday.
Carrie Underwood's husband, Mike Fisher, will be moving a whole lot closer to the country singer/song writer.
Fisher was the starting center for the Ottawa Senators. He was traded early Thursday to the Nashville Predators for a 2011 Entry Draft and a conditional pick in the 2012 Draft. The couple must be absolutely ecstatic today.
Fisher has mentioned moving to Nashville before. But he never thought it would be mandated this soon. He told the Ottawa Sun last summer, "When I'm done hockey, she'll still be working. I'm sure she can always work. We'll settle in Nashville. I love it there. I've got lots of friends there now, I love the area. I like a lot of things about it. There's a nice church that we love, that we go to ... that being said, it's a little ways away. I want to obviously play a few years, a bunch of years here yet."
It seems the sports gods have given a gift to Fisher and Underwood. It is not often that you are traded to the exact place your heart desires.
For Ottawa, it looks like they will be in re-building mode for the time being. The hockey world has been hot hard financially. For smaller market teams, the name of the game is get younger and cheaper.
