Carrie Underwood flashed her new diamond engagement ring Monday night as her fiance Mike Fisher's Ottawa Senators hockey team faced off against the Boston Bruins in Ottawa.

Despite his team's 2-0 loss, he was all smiles as he spoke to reporters.

"It's true. We're both obviously excited and very happy," Fisher, 29, said when asked about the engagement. "I'm not sure exactly when [the wedding will take place]." His website said they hope to wed sometime next summer.

He declined a question asking if he was on bended knee when he popped the question Sunday.

"That's all I'm going to say: We're both very happy and excited," he said.

His teammates couldn't be more thrilled for him. "It's great. It's a long time coming," said Winger Chris Neil. "There's going to be a lot of broken hearts here in Ottawa with all those girls that are in love with Mikey."

But he said Underwood, 26, is "an awesome girl. We're ecstatic for him."
