Also your skating style can effect your endurance. Im a basically a beginner hockey player but I'm fairly up on my fitness level/knowledge. being that, I can tell you I get winded quickly because my skating is so bad, I have a very unnatural stride-I lift my feet too high then slam them down, I push more back then to the side, and I dont trust my edges...I know these things because I went to a personal skating instructor who basically told me I'm a mess, and I'll never be good til my skating improves. If your a good skater then you probably dont have my problems so basic fitness should help you out, otherwise, like me, you might need the extra help a power skating coach can give. Either way it boils down to hard work and effort...which is the root of hockey.
