Something tells me that before today, Ottawa Senators forward Mike Fisher wasn't exactly a household name. But, if the above three search terms (three of the top 10 terms people are searching for, according to Google Trends) prove as an accurate indicator, Google is making Fisher a star.

Fisher is reportedly engaged to Carrie Underwood, making him the latest example of the "Who is this guy!?!" search engine phenomenon.

Some people are probably looking for pictures of Fisher to judge if he's worthy of marrying one of the music industry's biggest stars. Others are searching for details of how the hockey player and the country star crossed paths in the first place. And others are probably wondering where Ottawa is.

But no matter why folks are searching for Mike Fisher, the Senator center is a bigger star than ever before, and the NHL is benefiting from the publicity.

Maybe the secret to the NHL growing is it's players being more open about who they're dating. Well, except Sean Avery, that is.
