Alright, first things first, he is WAY more than Carrie Underwood’s husband, obviously – but Carrie is Smashville royalty almost as much as Mike Fisher.

All that being said, though Fisher’s tenure as captain may have been short (2016-2017), his year as captain produced the storybook run of the 2017 postseason that culminated in the team’s first Stanley Cup appearance.

Though the Predators didn’t win the Stanley Cup, there were so many memories made that year; just to throw some shade, the Predators sweeping the top-seeded Blackhawks in the first round was…*chef’s kiss*.

When Fisher made the unexpected comeback out of retirement, the fanbase went nuts. That playoff run didn’t end as well, but it was awesome to see Fisher come out of retirement for one more run.

Fisher is iconic in and around Smashville, and continues to give back to the city, even after retirement. He’s a staple, and belongs on the Nashville Predators Captain Mount Rushmore for all he’s done and continues to do on and off the ice.
