Of course not with full hockey gear on, or hockey skates, but I guess it might be possible...
There have been several, but I believe they are banned in actual competition.


In the olympics a few years ago, one of the Russian female figure skaters (I believe Oksana Biul) complained about one of the other figure skaters doing back flips in warm ups and how she was incredibly distracted by it.

The general public's reaction of course was "wait, she can do backflips? That's awesome!"
