It looks like Carrie Underwood may be able to start her family sooner than she thought! Her hockey playing husband, Mike Fisher, has been traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators — where Carrie wanted to settle down with a family!
Yahoo! Sports reports that the Nashville Predators traded their first-round pick in the 2011 Entry Draft and a conditional pick in the 2012 Draft for Mike today.
The condition pick is Nashville’s third-round selection if the Predators win one round in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and turns into a second-rounder in 2012 if the team wins two-or-more rounds.
“We were seeking a top-six forward and Mike Fisher was the player we set our sights on,” David Poile, Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager said in a press release. “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.”
“Mike’s playoff experience will be invaluable to our team and he immediately makes our team stronger and deeper,” he added.
And we can only guess the news makes Carrie very happy!
The country singer previously told Detroit radio station WYCD, “We both love Nashville. I envision myself living there long after I have kids and long after I’m done singing and all that stuff, just because it’s a great place to live … You can work, you can write, you can record, you can shoot videos and all that stuff, but you can also find land and spread out a bit.”
