aside from the skating and obvious things like puck skills, etc. ... i hesitate to say it because posting on a site like this, i'm sure you're already quite familiar with positioning and the responsibilities of different players on the ice...but i feel compelled to emphasize familiarizing yourself with the various positions and their roles as an important thing to do, if you've never really played before.
i've seen a lot of real beginners who may love hockey immensely and watch a ton of it, but when they get out on the ice, they seem to have zero concept of where the should be at any given moment. and knowing where you should be and getting yourself into proper positions at the right times can make even an average skater seem like they're flying around.
probably an obvious and not at all helpful tip, but i thought i'd throw it out there anyway.
