ONe thing I noticed when playing hockey is that after a long time off like the off-season or something was that my legs would be in much better shaoe if a played other sports like soccer. So pretty much your best bet would be to be physically active along the lines of jogging on your treadmill to build up your wind, then doing quick sprint of about 100-200m to build leg strength. If possible playing some tennis would definatly help get you legs in shape too or raquetball/ any other similar sport because of the quick motions done when playing.
