I would definitely recommend getting your skating down first. Here is a stat that I found by the OMHA talking about in a hockey game - "Players will have the puck on their stick for an average of 8 seconds per game. "

Compare that to how much time you spend skating! Get your skating down, practice changing directions a lot, and quickly. Stop and starts, and turning / crossovers.

You will likely find that the better you are at skating, the more you will get the puck because you will be able to get open for a pass more often, and you will be able to get to the loose pucks faster.
