Carrie Underwood Posts Sweet Send-Off Message to Mike Fisher

Fisher's impressive career stats include 276 goals overall, with 309 assists in 1,088 games. He also added 23 goals and 51 points in 134 career playoff games - including a run to the Stanley Cup Final with the Preds in his final National Hockey League season.

Fisher and Underwood got married in 2010, just before he was traded to Nashville. But even at 37, the 1998 second-round draft pick (Ottawa Senators) could've offered someone mid-tier center depth after scoring 18 goals and logging 24 assists, his highest mark in four years, this past season. The athlete wrote about his retirement in a touching letter to his fans via The Tennessean newspaper.

Fisher experienced all the ups and downs of being part of the Nashville Predators. But, as was mentioned earlier, the Preds went from an eighth seed in the West to the Stanley Cup Final in 2016-17 only to lose to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games.

"This job I've been able to have for a majority of my life is so much fun", he said. "Things change when you have kids and you have a family". It was the first time the Predators have ever entered the Stanley Cup playoffs. Fisher was named the seventh captain in team history a year ago after the Predators traded defenseman Shea Weber to Montreal for defenseman P.K. Subban. The hockey player said this is his time to focus on spending more time with his family that has supported him "without question" along the way.

Fisher's biggest supporter, wife Carrie Underwood, 34, expressed her gratitude for her spouse of seven years with a touching Instagram tribute. "It's impossible to thank every one of them, but I'll try".

"One of the toughest guys to play against in my opinion, game in and game out".
