"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."
In a heartfelt letter to fans, NHL player Mike Fisher announced Thursday (Aug. 3) that he's retiring from hockey. The letter -- which was published in the Tennessean newspaper -- outlines his family-based reasoning behind the hard decision.
Fisher, who has been married to country superstar Carrie Underwood for seven years, played for the Nashville Predators. The team made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals in June but fell short to the Pittsburgh Penguins. "I approached this season with the mindset that it could be my last, and now that it's past, I'm looking forward to a future that includes a lot more time with my family,” Fisher writes. "Things change when you have kids and you have a family. They've supported me without question, and now it's my turn to return the favor.”
