Do you track your weight? If so, have you noticed a dip in your weight since starting these hockey sessions? Maybe you're not getting enough total calories?

I just recently went thru the 4 Hour Body diet, not paleo but there are parallels, and I never had issues with energy. However, I ate more substantial meals before games, around 3-4 hours before game time, but then topped up with something like a banana 1 hour before.

2 hours is a long time on the ice, though. And these are just lessons so the intensity shouldn't be that high. So I would be tempted to eat a bit more beforehand. Still have your big meal ~4 hours before, eat a banana 1 hour before and then a couple fig newtons when you get to the rink.

And for that long a session, you should be drinking Gatorade from the beginning of the session. I'm a huge hydration guy so I would take two bottles, 1 water, 1 gatorade.
