from Kate Hogan of People,
Carrie Underwood is very excited that husband Mike Fisher’s hockey team is in the NHL playoffs, but she’s not quite as enthused about the rituals that come along with the games.
“I’m not looking forward to the playoff beard,” she joked to PEOPLE while promoting Olay’s new “Beauty by Example” campaign in New York on Thursday. “[The players] all grow out their facial hair during the playoffs.”
Continued the country star: “So before they started, I told Mike, ‘You need to shave close.’ He always looks good with a little stubble, but it’s probably going to get out of hand soon.”
Carrie, there is one sure way to put an end to that beard, even before it gets out of hand.
“I think being a Christian in NHL has come a long way. We had a guy [Larry] that led our chapel in Ottawa for years, and he was under so much scrutiny back in the ’80s because he was a believer. He was one of the first believers to kind of tell everyone about his faith and let people know and that was really kind of odd in the hockey world back then which is sad. He got a lot of grief from some of the owners and management. And hockey ministries, HMI, has done really good work and gotten chapels — I think it’s close to half of the teams right now that have optional chapels for guys that can go and learn with the Lord and so that’s exciting. So it has come a long way.”

I’m planning a romantic second honeymoon in Hawaii very soon. Mike and I hope to make a baby under those tropical stars.”

It’s officially Mike and Carrie Fisher.
The elite wedding of Senators forward Mike Fisher, 30, and American sweetheart superstar country singer Carrie Underwood, 27, went ahead as planned Saturday in Greensboro, Ga.
The couple, known for steadfastly guarding their privacy, gave exclusive coverage rights to People magazine, which reported Saturday evening 250 friends and family witnessed the event, set to classical music and featured the religious couple’s favourite Bible readings.
Among those in attendance were country stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, as well as Ottawa Senators Chris Phillips, Shean Donovan, Nick Foligno, Chris Neil and former teammate Wade Redden.
A woman came up to me at the grocery store and chewed me out, telling me if I thought I was going to take Mike (Fisher) away from Ottawa, I had another thing coming, and she wasn’t kidding. She let me know she loved him and he was going to stay here, period, no matter what I said. She might have been kidding, but she wasn’t being funny.”

from Chris Young of Toronto Star,
Dion Phaneuf’s arrival as the newest Maple Leaf in town means it won’t be long before main squeeze Elisha Cuthbert shows up at the Air Canada Centre, a place that hasn’t seen a power couple like this since Vince Carter and his mom left town.
The 24-year-old Phaneuf, acquired from Calgary on Sunday, and Cuthbert, the 27-year-old Calgary native best known for her role in the TV drama 24, have been an item for nearly two years.
They will have to do some hard training, though, to catch up with the power play going on in Ottawa. Singer Carrie Underwood and her Senators centreman Mike Fisher are coming off their cute-and-cuter Grammy Awards appearance Sunday night as they move toward a planned wedding that will be the most sought-after invitation in the game this summer.
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Senators heartthrob Mike Fisher and his country singer superstar girlfriend Carrie Underwood are engaged to be married.
Fisher confirmed their engagement just moments ago as the Senators prepared for tonight’s game against the Boston Bruins at Scoriabank Place. Responding to questions, he said he popped the question to Underwood on Sunday, but declined to offer any other details at this point.
“It’s true,” said Fisher. “We’re both obviously excited and very happy.”
from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,
Mike Fisher made a vow to his girlfriend of almost a year when she wrote a love note to him for all the world to see.
“I told her that when my CD came out, I’d return the favour,” the Senators centre said with a laugh after Saturday’s 5-3 win over Buffalo.
In an exclusive interview with Sun Media, Fisher also chuckled when asked if he had any immediate plans to propose to country singing superstar Carrie Underwood, who he has been dating since near the start of this year.
“Who are you, Ellen?” he joked, referring to Ellen DeGeneres, the popular daytime TV host who last week pressed Underwood with similar questions.
While saying there are no marriage plans in the immediate future, Fisher admitted Underwood is just his second “serious girlfriend.”

So much for any question as to the seriousness of the relationship.
Less than two months after Carrie Underwood dove to the floor so as not to be caught by TSN cameras at a Senators game in Nashville, the country singing superstar let the world know of her feelings for Mike Fisher.
In her speech moments after being named the Entertainer Of The Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards, Underwood thanked her family, thanked God and acknowledged the Senators’ centre.
“Mike baby, I wish you were here!” she blurted.
Fans who come out to see the Ottawa Senators play may have noticed a little more glitter in the stands these days — two of the players’ celebrity girlfriends.
Singers Carrie Underwood and Hilary Duff have Ottawa abuzz with celebrity sightings and gossip.
Underwood is rumoured to be dating Mike Fisher and Duff has been spotted around town with Mike Comrie.
For those who follow the singers and not the Sens, Fisher and Comrie are both forwards with the Senators.
Stories of sightings have appeared in People magazine and on Entertainment Tonight.

Carrie Underwood may have her eyes set on a hot new boy — Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher.
The 25-year-old American Idol alum was spotted with her hair tied back at the “Ottawa Senators vs. Toronto Maple Leafs” hockey game at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Saturday (January 3). Carrie’s 28-year-old Canuck cutie played with his fellow Senators but unfortunately lost out to the Leafs 3-1.
