Doing standard cardio (jogging, biking) won't hurt, but I don't think it helps *TOO* much with hockey either. Those things will get you good at going at a slow pace for a long time, but a hockey game is really different. As Hextall27 suggested, high intensity interval training is good (sprint/jog/sprint/jog/sprint/jog/etc.), or even just tonnes and tonnes of suicides (on or off ice). Not your classic cardio, but I've found that the times when I've had the best hockey endurance have been the times when I've been doing tonnes of suicides.
