It looks like Carrie Underwood and her husband have had a bad run-in with injuries these last few months and both required significant surgery to fix…
Mike Fisher, one of the Nashville Predators’ most famous team members, has just made his return to the ice after coming out of retirement in hopes to help the Predators during these playoffs. Now, it appears he won’t be back on the ice for a while.
Without an official update, I think it's safe to say Mike Fisher isn't coming back.

Carrie, who fell down on her steps last winter, not only suffered a broken wrist but also required more than 40 stitches in her face after a mishap while taking out the dogs. She kept her face hidden while she worked on healing, and finally made her first public debut at the ACM Awards in April – to perform her brand new song “Cry Pretty.”
During Monday’s game six in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Predators went up against the Winnipeg Jets and won, four to zero – but it was during this game Fisher sustained an undisclosed injury.
The CBC announcer said that Mike Fisher had not returned to the bench after the 1st period. Hope it's not an injury. #Preds

No Mike Fisher to start the third period.

His injury has forced his team to pull him from the lineup for game seven which happens tonight, May 10th, at Bridgestone Arena. Without much information, the team quietly announced he would not be playing and only described it as a “lower body” injury.
Mike Fisher (lower body) will not play tonight and is day-to-day. #StandWithUs

According to local sports website, A to Z Sports Nashville, a source has claimed that Fisher sustained an injury to his meniscus, but other outlets like CBS Sports do not speculate and simply confirm that he has undergone surgery.
Fans have posted various clips of the recent game showing different parts where they believe he got injured, but his team is staying quiet at this point.
This is likely why Fisher is absent. Cheap shot from the Jets. – @AtoZSports: Tyler Myers was so thrilled by the Preds goal he decided to smoke Mike Fisher in the skull. #Preds #NHLJets pic.twitter.com/Mnmxu3xcTS

Went back and watched it, but this was Mike Fisher's final shift before exiting the game for the remainder last night.
Even as he crashed into the boards, I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Played for 29 seconds and then came off the ice. pic.twitter.com/4NIPVxms7q
