Carrie Underwood Reacts To Husband Mike Fisher's Hockey Retirement

Carrie Underwood could not have been more supportive when her husband Mike Fisher announced his retirement from the NHL. 

The Nashville Predators captain revealed he would be hanging up his skates in The Tennessean on Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017. "This job I've been able to have for a majority of my life is so much fun. To help create that entertainment and to see the joy we can bring to people is such a unique and exciting opportunity. I'll miss my teammates, my coaches and the game itself," the 37-year-old wrote. "This is the hardest decision I've ever had to make, but I know I've made the right one. I've decided to retire from the NHL."

His country superstar wife, one of American Idol's few successes, took to Instagram soon after the news broke to pen a sweet note. "Captain @mfisher1212 I sure am going to miss watching you play and cheering you on with the rest of Smashville, but I so look forward to seeing what God has in store for you in this next chapter of your life," the "Church Bells" singer wrote. 

"You've given your teammates and the game your all for so many've worked so hard and made us all so proud!" the 34-year-old continued. "Isaiah and I love you so much and are so excited to be able to have you home a lot more...We can't wait to cheer on the @predsnhl WITH you in the stands! #ThankYouSmashville #PredsFansForLife."

While Fisher has yet to announce his next career move, it's clear that no matter what, Underwood will be cheering her husband on as this exciting new part of his life begins.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, the cute pair celebrated their seven-year anniversary in early July 2017. The happy couple married in a beautiful ceremony in Greensboro, GA on July 10, 2010. In February 2015, they welcomed their son, 2-year-old Isaiah.
