My coach doesn't even teach the traditional two foot hockey stop any more. Instead he's teaching us to drag our back foot and stop with our feet apart rather than together. The reason for this is that in the traditional hockey stop, you can only move in one direction. If you stop with your feet spread apart, you can move in either direction.

The drill we do is set up four cones in a zig zag pattern. Take a few strides to the first cone and stop. Skate to the second cone and stop with the opposite foot. Skate to the third cone and stop. Skate to the fourth cone and stop with your opposite foot. Bonus points if you snow the cone.
