For developing speed work intervals in your cardio. Go max out as fast as you can for 30 seconds, then low intensity for a minute and a half to two minutes. Always keep track and try and beat your previous best.
To build up your endurance, again with the cardio, a great thing to do is a shift approximation interval. Work hard (but not max) for one minute, then take two at low intensity. Do this for 30 minutes (10 sets) if you can.
In the weight room, try and incorporate an exercise ball into as many exercises as you can. You need to blast your core as it's one of the most important muscle groups for sports, especially hockey. Also work some squat variations. You want to hit the muscles you'll use when you're skating. Squats, split squats, step-ups, etc, are all great.
