Have you ever wanted to own your own full-size indoor hockey rink and Zamboni? Now is your chance. Former NHL player Milan Hejduk has listed his enormous 16,700 square-foot Colorado mansion on the market, and it’s a beauty.
Hejduk, who skated with the Colorado Avalanche from the 1998-99 season through the 2012-13 season, has listed his home for $5.2 million. Beyond the rink and Zamboni, the home sits on 2.25 acres and also has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and seven(!) fireplaces. The rink also has its own living space, kitchen and bedroom in case you want to live as close to the ice as possible. We don’t even want to try and calculate how expensive it is to maintain a full rink and Zamboni in a personal home.
So, why is Hejduk and his family putting up their amazing house for sale? Location, location, location. As Hejduk’s boys (14-year-old twins) progress in their own hockey careers, they’re skating over an hour from their current home. That distance may grown even further as time goes on. That means the Hejduk family is moving, though they plan to stay in Colorado.
Hejduk, via The Denver Post:
“We’re just trying to take advantage of the market here (and) who knows what’s going to happen with the boys. We would put it on the market, anyway, at some point, and the drive from Parker to old Foothills (Ice Arena) where currently the Thunderbirds are practicing, it’s not really pleasant. It’s about an hour drive so, I wouldn’t mind being a little closer.”
