seeing as you probably work then have a life outside of hockey, I really doubt you got time to sit in front of a wall and bounce the ball. Maybe before a game. But I know I dont and I am only 21. It was a great drill when I was a kid, but I really dont have the time.
Something I would recommend would be to take up a racket sport like squash or racquet ball. While it wont necessarily improve your reactions as much, it will improve your coordination and anticipation.
Another thing you might want to try to look into is bad habits. You could be dropping your glove or blocker and then reacting. That fraction of a second would let you get beat. Another would be to check your positioning of your gloves. As someone else said, make sure they are out in front of you.
