Is It In Your Blood? Backyard Rinks

The Backyard Rink Contest brought to you by The Home Depot has closed. The winning entry will be announced on Friday, February 11. Thanks to all who participated! ran three tests this season to see if people have it in their blood. We saw their rooms, their outfits and even their moustaches. But now comes the truest test to see who bleeds the sport of hockey.

Let's face it, those who complain about the frigid winter months of January and February do not have a backyard rink. In fact, for this breed of hockey crazed folks, the colder the air, the hotter the action on the ice and the better the taste of hot chocolate after a game. There's no closing time. The warming shack is always open. And the postgame meals are always better.

There's something special and pure about a backyard rink, and now, we want to see a photo of yours for the next Is It In Your Blood? Contest, brought to you by The Home Depot. The cooler the scene, the better chance you'll have of winning the grand prize. 

What is the grand prize?

So glad you asked. The winning rink will win a $250 gift card, courtesy of The Home Depot, as well as two lower-level tickets to the Wild's home game against the Edmonton Oilers on February 22.

No matter what, your submission will be posted on and the Wild's Hockey Day website.

But there are two rules:

The submission deadline has passed to send in your photo. Thanks to all who participated!
