Jinelle Zaugg (born March 27, 1986) was a member of the 2009–10 United States national women's ice hockey team and won a silver medal at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Zaugg also played hockey for the Wisconsin Badgers and won the NCAA title in 2006. In addition, she helped the Minnesota Whitecaps to the Western Women's Hockey League championship in 2008-09.

Playing careerEdit

  • In high school, Zaugg played for the Northland Pines High School varsity boys' hockey team. She led the team to back-to-back Lumberjack Conference championships as a junior and senior.

Wisconsin BadgersEdit

  • Over her four year career at Wisconsin, Zaugg won two national championships, and scored 133 career points. In addition, she was named to the 2007 Frozen Four All-Tournament Team, and was honoured as team captain in 2008.[1] In her first year at Wisconsin, Zaugg managed to score 12 goals on 15 percent shooting. With 24 goals in 2005, she established herself as a major threat on a championship-bound Badgers team. In her junior year, she put together a 29-goal season — 20 of which came in conference play. She nearly doubled her conference scoring output from a year before (12 goals). Eight of Zaugg's team-leading 29 goals were game-winners, earning her reputation as a clutch player. When Wisconsin won its second national championship in 2006, Zaugg notched two of the three goals in the game and garnered All-Tournament honors.[2]
