The fan who went viral during an NHL Playoffs game on Sunday has since been identified on social media.

Natalie Gauvreau, an actress/model with nearly 4 million followers on Instagram, was the fan sitting behind the Dallas Stars bench on Sunday.

Social media was quick to point her out.

Busted Coverage had more details:

Natalie made her BC debut way back in 2016 as a Toronto Blue Jays fan and became a NHL breakout star during Sunday’s game, which turned out to be a 4-1 blowout loss for the Stars. Natalie could’ve been a distraction for The Boys, which is why I recommend the ladies sit behind the visiting team’s bench. I’ve posted about these scenarios during the NHL playoffs for what feels like at least 10-11 years on here. I know, it’s becoming quite a run with the same posts year after year. I’ve begged teams to rig the seating behind the opposing teams so you line up at least 2-3 ‘distractions’ and see what happens.

Natalie has 3.7 million followers on IG.

The Stars and Blues, meanwhile, are set to play Game 7 on Tuesday.
