After taking home the trophy from American Idol in 2005, Carrie Underwood quickly became one of the most accomplished country music artists in Nashville, and now her husband, Mike Fisher is doing the same!
Playing in the NHL for nearly two decades and on the Nashville Predators for five years, the extremely talented athlete is set to hit a milestone many professional hockey players only dream of: his 1000th game in the NHL.
Because of this incredible accomplishment, many people on his team and in the professional sports industry are raving about it. Even Carrie couldn't hold back her excitement!
"I'm so proud of my man...what an amazing accomplishment!" she wrote on Facebook.
The Predator's general manager, David Poile, also paid Fisher a huge compliment through the excitement of his upcoming milestone.
"Sometimes you throw out clichés like 'role model' too loosely, but I think for Mike, it's a perfect fit," Poile told The Tennessean. "When we got him, it clearly was a difference (for) our franchise — the way we played, the way we conducted ourselves. ... He has that level of pride that when he doesn't think that he's contributing on a significant basis, then he'll know that it's time to go in a different direction."
Fisher was traded to the Predators five years ago and has played 324 games with them in that time while scoring nearly 200 points. He has also received the NHL Foundation Player Award for community service since he began with the team.
Fisher's upcoming 1000th game will be held on Thursday, March 3rd 2016 at 7 p.m. at the Predator's home stadium in Nashville.
We are so happy for Carrie Underwood and Mike as they celebrate this amazing milestone together!
