The Schwan’s™Hockey Mom Hall of Fame program in partnership with the Minnesota Wild recently wrapped up last week. During the Wild's second to last regular season home game on April 2, White Bear Lake's Gretchen Mattson was announced as the 2019 Schwan’s Hockey Mom of the Year at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
After the announcement, Mattson was received a special Minnesota Wild “Hockey Mom” jersey and a gift card for Schwan’s Home Service.
Mattson and five other “Hockey Mom of the Month” winners from earlier in the season attended the Wild game against the Winnipeg Jets in the Schwan’s Company suite at the Xcel Energy Center. During the second intermission, they were brought on to the ice for a simple skills challenge. The person who could pass the puck from the goal line and land it closest to center ice was the winner of the title “Hockey Mom of the Year.”
To be eligible for the Schwan’s Hockey Mom Hall of Fame program, the hockey moms needed to register at www.wild.com/hockeymom.
At each Wild home game, a Schwan’s Hockey Mom of the Game is randomly selected by the Minnesota Wild’s promotions team. All of the game winners are then put into a drawing to be selected as the Schwan’s Hockey Mom of the Month. At the end of the regular season, all of the Hockey Moms of the Month are brought back and the Schwan’s Hockey Mom of the Year is chosen.
This was Schwan’s sixth year sponsoring the event program during the Minnesota Wild hockey season.
