Carrie Underwood‘s Husband Traded To Nashville’s Hockey Team
Carrie Underwood‘s hockey player husband, Mike Fisher, was traded today to from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators. Which is pretty handy, considering Underwood is a country music star who already lives in “Music City.”
The Fisher-to-Nashville deal is the third major trade in the past 24 hours in the world of hockey. No word yet if they will also keep their brand new dream house in Canada or not.
Underwood tells People magazine, “we will both truly miss Ottawa. Mike has been such a big part of the community, and I will never forget how they welcomed me with open arms. We obviously love Nashville, and the teams’ decision for him to now play with the Predators is an exciting opportunity for Mike. I support him wherever he plays!”
Predators General Manager David Poile said, “We were seeking a top-six forward and Mike Fisher was the player we set our sights on.” He adds, “He plays playoff-style hockey all season long. He plays on the power play, kills penalties, is strong on draws and can match up against any opposing line.”
The best thing about Fisher coming to Nashville means he is now able to see his wife every day he is not on the road. The team has a pretty good record too – currently they are second in the Central Division and fifth in the Western Conference. Dirk Hoag of the Predators agrees giving up a first-round pick is a “steep price” for a Nashville team but it seems to think it’s worth it.
Underwood is up for a Grammy Sunday in the Best Female Country Vocal Performance category, for her song ‘Temporary Home.’ No word yet if she will attend the ceremony or not.
