Mike Fisher was raised with three siblings by Jim and Karen Fisher. His uncle is David Fisher, a retired member of the Toronto Blue Jays baseball club, while one of his brothers, Gregory, is also an ice hockey player, for Quinnipiac University in the ECAC.
Mike`s professional career began in 1998, when he was drafted as 44th overall pick by the Ottawa Senators, but before that he played hockey for Sudbury Wolves, which selected him as 22nd overall pick in the OHL Priority Draft.
To speak about his career at the Ottawa Senators, Mike stayed with the team for12 years until 2011. He made his debut in 1999-2000 season, playing only 32 games as he was injured along the way, but the next year he continued with good performances which eventually paid off in 2002-2003 season, when he scored 18 goals overall, and had 38 points. His next season was again cut short because of injuries, playing only 24 games, and the 2004-2005 season he spent at the Swiss hockey club EV Zug, because of the lockout in the NHL, so his net worth continued to rise.
Mike then returned to the Ottawa Senators, and in 68 games, scored 22 goals and had 22 points. In 2007, Mike`s net worth again increased to a large degree, as he signed a new contract with the Senators, worth $21 million for five years. In fact, the 2007-2008 season was his best with the Senators, finishing with 23 goals scored, setting his own record, but he missed the playoffs, as he suffered a knee injury.
He recuperated for the next season, and played 78 games, scoring only 13 goals. During the 2009-2010 season, Mike played in 79 games, breaking his own record in goals scored, stopping at 25, and having 53 points, making it his best season so far in the NHL.
However, in 2011, Mike was traded to Nashville Predators, for a first round draft pick of 2011, and conditional pick from the 2012 Draft. He debuted for the Predators on 12th February against Colorado Avalanche, and scored his first goal for the new team on the 17th February against Vancouver Canucks. In June 2015, Mike signed a two year contract with the Predators worth $8.8 million, which again increased his net worth by a large margin.
When it comes to his personal life, Mike Fisher has been married to Carrie Underwood, a country music singer, since July of 2010. They welcomed their first child in February 2015. His spare time he spends in hockey camps in his hometown, where he is also appreciated for being a guest instructor.
