Indoor rink keeps Plymouth-bound Marek Hejduk on ice during pandemic

The coronavirus outbreak hasn't stopped Plymouth-bound hockey player Marek Hejduk from skating and pursuing his NHL dream.

Hockey rinks are closed but the 16-year-old son of former Avalanche forward Milan Hejduk still laces up his skates with his twin brother David and steps onto a miniature ice rink complete with a Zamboni inside their 16,000 square-foot home.

Built in 2012 in Parker, Colorado, about 25 miles southeast of Denver, the rink is 85 feet long by 40 feet wide ("about the size of a neutral zone," Milan says).
