Do some NHL players use intermediate sticks?

There's a difference between intermediate
, sticks have smaller shaft dimensions than Senior and are shorter than their SR counterparts by mostly 2-3" and an intermediate flex is in the 60-70 range. Pro stock sticks can have all sorts of things done to them, so it's unlikely that you'll be able to tell just by looking whether a suspected INT pro stock stick matches up with its retail INT specs.
There are quite a few pros who do use retail sticks and cut down and a very small percentage use whippier flexes in that range, while many cut their sticks down to what you would see on retail INTs. What I'm saying basically is that depending on what you consider an INT stick, comparing it to pro stock is inaccurate.
Sorry for complicating it lol
