A group that includes two men with ties to the Pensacola Ice Flyers wants to build an ice skating rink in Gulf Breeze. 

Former Ice Flyers goalie John McLean and Rich Parent, a former Ice Flyers assistant coach who also played for two NHL teams, are part of a group that wants to build a 120-by-60-foot rink at 3070 Westfield Road.

The building at the site is currently a tennis club, according to Shawn Ward, Santa Rosa County planning and zoning director.

Parent, a former goalie who played with the Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues, said the group's plans include using the current building at the site for the ice rink and then building an extension. 

"It's actually to develop ice training for kids," Parent said Wednesday evening. "At the Bay Center, there is not a lot of ice time."
