these are all great suggestions. mainly...doing anything versus nothing at all is going to help. i'd suggest running to building your aerobic base to start. then work on your anaerobic base doing sprints and plyometric type workouts. i believe you should build your cardio first. you will see and improvement. also, leg workouts (squats, lunges) to help build muscle to sustain all the starting and stopping you do esp at the end of games.

if you put the effort in you will see results. i notice when i skip workouts and play my game goes down. hockey's a sport that you need to stay in shape if you want to be any good. there are exceptions to those that are ultra talented and have played many years so for the rest we require working out. good luck
