Carrie Underwood’s hockey star husband Mike Fisher is lacing up his skates once again — and the singer is more than ready to watch him win a Stanley Cup.
Fisher revealed Thursday he will return to the NHL to play for the Nashville Predators just months after announcing his retirement.
“This is happening! Fish is back! So proud of you, baby! We want the cup!!!” Underwood wrote on Twitter, retweeting the team’s official announcement.
According to the Predators’ official site, Fisher is aiming to sign a contract before the Feb. 26 trade deadline, though the movie is “virtually unprecedented — only a handful of NHLers have stepped out of retirement and back onto the ice to give it one more try.”
Fisher, 37, wed the “Before He Cheats” singer in 2010. Their son, Isaiah, will turn 3 this month.
He retired in August after seven seasons with the Predators, his final as team captain. As captain, he led the team to the Stanley Cup Finals, though they eventually lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
When he announced his retirement, Underwood took to Instagram to express her support.
“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,” she wrote.
During Fisher’s brief stint out of work, he also took on the role of caretaker; in November, Underwood fell on a set of steps outside her Nashville home and broke her wrist. She revealed later that she also suffered a facial injury that required at least 40 stitches.
“Glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me,” she said at the time.
