SAINT PAUL/MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- The Wild on Tuesday night announced that its 2008-09 All-Star Fan is Jeanne Unglesbee. Jeanne was nominated by her husband Dwayne, who sent the following in an e-mail: “I’d like to nominate my wife -- my high school sweetheart and former defenseman for the South Saint Paul Packers girl’s hockey team. Most husbands would never admit it, but she’s the reason I’m a hockey fan and Wild enthusiast. She introduced me to hockey as a teenager and, as we grew in love, so did my interest in hockey. Now season ticket holders and proud parents of a son with a middle name of ‘Bauer,’ all our friends know what the Unglesbee’s are doing on hockey night in Minnesota ... Cheering for the Wild!”
Niklas Backstrom presented Jeanne with his autographed All Star jersey in a special postgame ceremony on April 7.
