You can usually win some pretty good prizes playing a trivia contest at an NHL game. For instance, Jessica Nenninger won her husband.

Staff Sgt. Nathan Nenninger returned home from his tour of duty and surprised his wife and three young children at the St. Louis Blues game on Saturday.

Jessica Nenninger was asked to watch a "video fact" and guess true or false. Her husband appeared on the screen, saying he was stationed in Texas. Jessica guessed that was false.

She was right.

Nathan came out as the contest's "mystery prize" and had a big hug for his wife as fans gave them a loud ovation.
