The Ottawa Citizen reports that Fisher, 29, was left off the Canadian Olympic team list unveiled on Wednesday.

The overlooked athlete can console himself by making wedding plans with Underwood, 26. On Dec. 20, the singer said "yes!" and donned the engagement rock: a flawless yellow diamond engagement ring. The ultra-private Fisher told UsMagazine.com "The ring was designed by Johnathon Arndt. I did ask her parents for permission. No date set for wedding yet but this summer sometime."

"We've gotten to know [Underwood] quite well over the last year and she's a great girl," Mike's father Jim Fisher said recently. "We just think they make a great couple."
