Gotta disagree with this one, I can jog at a decent pace for over an hour without stopping and am still totally gassed before the end of a hockey game. I am a forward who loves to fore-check though, and in beer league play we're lucky to get 3 lines and generally have more like 2, so that doesn't help. But needing to stop for 5 mins total on a 30 min run means you're in pretty bad shape IMO, I have to think a person in that kind of shape would be basically useless by the end of the game if they've been skating hard.
