No. NHL teams have their own trainers who work on tailoring workouts to each player. There's no set formula.

There are a lot of stationary bikes and such, a lot of balance training and such. Some players need to add bulk, so they get routines to help them bulk up.

In the offseason, players often pick out a trainer or athletic training company and train with them.

If you want to get as close to what pro players do as you can, find a personal trainer familiar with hockey. Preset routines are really only for mass market consumption- anybody serious about training has an individualized routine.
