Rockford Christian senior builds hockey rink in backyard

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- A senior at Rockford Christian High School took advantage of the recent cold, snow and ice to build a hockey rink in his own backyard.

Brent Brunner passes on his passion for hockey with the 40-by-60 feet rink. He has been playing hockey for more than 10 years.

With help from his father, Brunner finished up a project several years in the making. Recently, he shared a video with him and his friends enjoying the rink.

Brunner hopes to inspire others to set a rink up themselves and find other ways to get creative with the cold. He says he will miss the rink once he starts college next year.
