The average shift length for a player in the NHL is usually somewhere between 45 and 55 seconds, depending on the player and position.
Some may be a little longer (Mike Green, for example, is averaging 1:04 per shift this season), others a little shorter (Edmonton's Will Acton only plays 31 seconds per shift). The bottom line is, when you start getting up around a minute-and-a-half that's a long time to be on the ice.
Nashville's powerhouse duo of Shea Weber and Seth Jones took it to an entirely new level on Thursday night in Phoenix. According to the NHL's time-on-ice sheets, Weber and Jones were on the ice for three minutes and 24 seconds at the end of the second period. It's exhausting just typing that.
