Howard Baldwin, the former owner of the NHL’s Hartford Whalers, wants to bring an NHL team back to Connecticut after the Whalers moved to North Carolina and are now known as the Carolina Hurricanes.

His main obstacle will be to show an increase in fan interest as to convince NHL officials that Hartford offers a viable market, and it appears he may have inadvertently hit the jackpot.

Megan Fox, the popular actress and source of  male-oogling, was spotted wearing a shirt supporting the extinct franchise. Granted Fox wouldn’t be my first guess as a celebrity supporter of the team and hasn’t actually declared her fandom publicly, but stranger things have happened.

You can bet this photo will be at the beginning of the powerpoint Baldwin shows NHL officials.
