Maybe! In general during a regular 3-period game there is likely not a need to eat during intermission. Although, all teams should have a plan for multiple overtime scenarios for food, like easy to digest carbohydrates: fruit, raisins, shot blocks, gels/gus. Also before you decide to add food to your game routine, try it out in practice first to see how you feel on the ice!

National Academy of Sports Medicine answeredDuring training or a game, you may need to refuel, depending on how long you’ve been playing and at what intensity. Try to take in some carbohydrate at every opportunity. Sports drinks, diluted fruit drinks, a handful of cereal, or “back pocket food” (gels, beans, and blocks, etc.) with 8 ounces of water will provide additional fuel to working muscles.
